"Outstanding! From start to finish everybody really enjoyed the day," Allardyce told the club's official website following the game. "I think the players were a little nervous, which was a good thing, I think, as that gave them the edge to go out and perform like they did against a very good Tottenham side.
"Even before they got the player sent off, we had such a positive start in threatening the opposition's back four, where we felt that their weakness would be. Of course, when Stewart Downing got through one-on-one, he was going to get a shot off on the keeper.
"Had Tottenham not had Lloris on the pitch, I might be sat here with four or five goals. But certainly two was more than enough at half-time. Pity we didn't get any more, but a fantastic performance overall and a positive end to the season [at home]."
The victory ensures that West Ham are safe from relegation.
