Spurs experienced late upset as they were forced to walk away with just one point from their most recent league outing at home.

For almost the entirety of the 90 minutes at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the weekend, it looked almost certain that the home side would come out on top after the full-time whistle.

However, that was not the case as the Hammers handed them hard and repeated blows near the end to share the exploits.

Not even a full minute had completely elapsed after the kick-off when Son Heung-min found the net. Harry Kane found Son with a stunning pass against the run of play and the South Korean cut inside and shot in the bottom-right corner, handing his side the lead.

Seven minutes later, they struck again. The roles reversed this time as Son turned provider and Kane the one with the finish. The Spurs captain, after a cheeky nutmeg on an opposition player, sent an unstoppable low shot past Lukasz Fabianski.

Kane’s poaching abilities were in full display in the match as he bagged yet another goal at the 16-minute mark. It was a poacher’s goal as the England international rose highest to head the ball in from Sergio Reguilon’s cross.

Not much activity was witnessed in the remainder of the first-half and it continued until late in the game. And what Spurs had done in the opening few minutes of the match, West Ham did at the closing stages.

West Ham’s initial successful response came with eight minutes to go until normal time, with Fabian Balbuena beating Hugo Lloris.

Spurs then created their own troubles as Davidson Sanchez then rolled the ball in his own net. The visitors made sure to take advantage of their mistake as Manuel Lanzini scored in stoppage time to help West Ham salvage a point from the 3-3 draw.
