The Moyes verdict

David Moyes has expressed his pride at managing the West Ham team to a genuinely incredible draw with Spurs!

Let’s repeat it – the Hammers came back from 3-0 down to secure the most remarkable point.

After a 16 minutes in which the Irons were run ragged, a Son Heung-Min goal and a Harry Kane brace gave the north Londoners a 3-0 lead, they fought back in remarkable circumstances.

Fabian Balbuena scored what could have been a consolation goal on 82 minutes but the Irons simply did not stop fighting.

A Davinson Sanchez own goal gave further hope but what came afterwards was remarkable.

A free-kick whipped into the box and barely cleared, dropping to Manuel Lanzini 25 yards from goal to hit. He smacked it in off the crossbar, sparking wild celebrations.

And Moyes could barely hide his astonishment at the result.

Talking after a totally astonishing 90 minutes Moysie said:  “The team talk was really difficult at half-time. We were 3-0 down but played well, apart from the first 10 minutes.

I didn’t think we needed to change anything. They got the first goal and we had a chance to make it 1-1 and from that they made it 2-0. “Harry Kane was incredible today. So good. Up close he is a terrific player.

“We did what we did in the first half in the second. We thought we played really well. The defending we didn’t like but our play was very good. In the end we got some goals from it.

“As a manager at times it is hard to use the word proud, but tonight was a really proud moment to be manager of the team because of how they kept at it. It is a big result. Hopefully the supporters will have enjoyed it.”

Gaffer,  let us be the first to tell you, we’re just as proud as you are!
