Tottenham Hotspur falls to West Ham as use of derogatory word persists

Tottenham Hotspur fell to their Premier League rivals Sunday in London. And a Tottenham Hotspur fan found himself under arrest for using what some consider a racist word in the stadium.

Ravel Morrison's skillful solo goal completed a 3-0 victory for West Ham over Tottenham in style on Sunday, ending a 14-year wait for a win at its London rival in the Premier League.

Morrison picked up possession inside his own half and swept past both Michael Dawson and Jan Vertonghen before dinking the ball over goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the 79th minute.

"That is a genius goal for me," West Ham manager Sam Allardyce said. "You'll struggle to see a better goal than that this season."


The 20-year-old midfielder was offloaded by Manchester United in 2012 after then-manager Alex Ferguson lost patience with his off-field issues.
