“We are in the midst of the season. I feel we’re shut. We overlooked the chance right here however I feel we’re shut.
“I am more than happy with the entire gamers, most effective every now and then you want some success to open the sport, love it used to be after we performed Southampton.
“I feel it used to be a an identical recreation to that one. One used to be Five-2, and this used to be 1-1.”
Obiang surprised Tottenham with West Ham’s first shot of the fit after 70 mins.
The Spanish midfielder let fly from 30 yards – which used to be about as shut as West Ham were given to the Spurs purpose – with a rocket which flew previous goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and into the highest nook.
But Spurs hit again in similarly impressive taste with any other long-range cracker from Son, who in spite of everything were given the easier of Hammers keeper Adrian with six mins left.
Hammers boss David Moyes admitted he used to be as shocked as any individual to look Obiang rifle house most effective his 3rd purpose for the membership.
“It used to be an excellent strike,” he said. “I hadn’t noticed him do it in coaching, even though.”
West Ham, who had been within the relegation zone on Tuesday morning, will have climbed to 11th had they hung on.
But Moyes added: “Confidence is rising with our effects. We have began to appear more potent, however then we have now misplaced a couple of targets.
“In the main, we have only lost one game in seven. They are disappointed they didn’t win it.”
