Lanzini world beater snatches precious point

West Ham produced an amazing comeback to secure a 3-3 draw with Tottenham on Sunday via an astonishing Manu Lanzini goal.

The game looked over after 16 minutes, as Jose Mourinho’s men rushed into a 3-0 lead.

Son Heung-Min scored the first goal of the game after 45 seconds, latching onto a Harry Kane pass from deep and fronting up Fabian Balbuena before beating him and finding the back of the net.

Aaron Cresswell nearly levelled proceedings with a free-kick from range that had Hugo Lloris scrambling but in the seventh minute, it was 2-0, as Kane nutmegged Declan Rice on the edge of the box and smacked the ball into the bottom corner.

And Kane added his second on 16 minutes, heading home after Sergio Reguilon’s teasing cross.

There were chances for West Ham thereafter.

First Pablo Fornals had a decent strike on the bounce in the first half which forced Lloris into action, before Arthur Masuaku sent a half-volley over the bar.

Kane had a number of other efforts, hitting the post too, but it was the Hammers who struck back with nine minutes left.

A free-kick was lofted in by Cresswell and Balbuena got his head on it, sending it into the bottom corner with just eight minutes left.

And Davinson Sanchez then scored an own goal to open the door to a blockbuster finish.

West Ham continually loaded the box but substitute Gareth Bale almost netted on his second debut, only to send the ball narrowly and thankfully wide in injury time.

And Manuel Lanzini scored an absolute screamer in the final minute, sending home from 25 yards to steal a point.

Up next are Manchester City.
