West Ham have ended the weekend in the Premier League's Champions League zone after both Arsenal and Tottenham were surprisingly beaten today.

A hapless Spurs are down to 12th place in the table after falling to a 2-1 defeat at home to Stoke City, who threw away a 2-0 lead at home to West Ham just eight days ago.

Meanwhile Arsenal - who could have overtaken Sam Allardyce's side had they won in Wales this afternoon - went down 2-1 at Swansea, despite having taken the lead midway through the second half.

Those results - combined with West Ham's goalless draw at home to Aston Villa yesterday - keep West Ham fourth in the table on 18 points, ahead of fifth-places Swansea on goal difference.

* To cap a miserable day for Spurs, earlier this afternoon their Ladies team were smashed 4-0 by West Ham Ladies. Gemma Abela and Sasha Kelly both grabbed a brace in the second half to secure an excellent win for Julian Dicks' side.
