West Ham scored three goals in the final ten minutes to draw 3-3 against Tottenham in a dramatic game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Manuel Lanzini scored a stunning long range strike in stoppage time to spark wild celebrations and secure a point for David Moyes’ side that seemed unfathomable at 3-0 down in the 81st minute.
Spurs’ electric start
Spurs took the lead after 45 seconds when Harry Kane’s curled pass from inside his own half found Heung-Min Son, who bent his shot past West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. It was Kane’s seventh assist in the Premier League this season.
Son turned into the provider for the second goal, as Kane nutmegged Declan Rice and drilled his shot into the bottom corner.
Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have now combined for 28 Premier League goals – the fourth-best duo in history! 😲

The English forward grabbed his second of the game, and his fifth league goal of the season when he headed in a flighted cross from Sergio Reguilon to put Jose Mourinho’s side 3-0 up after 16 minutes.
Gareth Bale hotly-anticipated second debut did not go as planned for the Welshman, who came on at 3-0 and missed a chance to seal the win at 3-2.
Fabian Balbuena’s header gave West Ham some hope, then Davinson Sanchez’s own goal made Moyes’ side believe they could rescue the game.
It was Lanzini’s first goal since May 2019 and it’s a result that means West Ham have taken seven points from three games against Wolves, Leicester and Spurs.
The first team in Premier League history to avoid defeat in a game having been 0-3 down as late as the 81st minute.
