Oct 19th, 2020 – West Ham came back from three goals down with under 10 minutes to go to rescue a point in an astonishing comeback against Tottenham.
Manuel Lanzini’s brilliant long-range strike in injury time leveled the scores after Spurs had taken complete control in the opening 16 minutes, through two goals from Harry Kane and one from Son Heung-min.
Gareth Bale, on as a substitute in his first appearance since his return to Spurs from Real Madrid, missed a great chance in stoppage time before Lanzini lashed the ball in off goalkeeper Hugo Lloris’ fingertips to cap an incredible climax.
The result sees Spurs remain in sixth place, while West Ham moves up two places into eighth.
“They were lucky but maybe they deserved that luck,” said Tottenham Manager Jose Mourinho, “I don’t know if it was us inviting them or them with the extra motivation of getting in the game. I cant identify us or them, maybe both.“
