Striker Jonathan Obika scored a fine hat-trick to give Tottenham Hotspur victory over Manchester United at the club's Training Centre.
The 22-year-old put Spurs ahead on 35 minutes when he spun to fire home from Ezekiel Fryers' cross.
Tom Thorpe equalised for United after the break with a superb strike from 20 yards out but Obika put his side ahead again, heading in from close range after Harry Kane's header had hit the bar.
United pressed for the equaliser but Obika made sure of the win when he finished off a breakaway goal in the final minute.
The result maintains Tottenham's unbeaten start to the second phase of the Barclays Under-21 Premier League and they now lead the Elite Group by seven points.
Substitute Alberto Seidi came off the bench to score the winner at Rush Green Stadium as Saints recorded their first victory in the Elite Group.
Seidi picked the ball up on the right hand side of the area and fired over the goalkeeper with 27 minutes remaining.
Callum Driver and Sebastian Lletget had first-half chances for the Hammers, while George Moncur was denied an equaliser by a last-gasp block from Saints defender Aaron Martin.
West Ham are second in the Elite Group, seven points behind Tottenham Hotspur having played a match less while Saints are fourth.
