Harry Kane brought Tottenham back from the dead by scoring twice in the last two minutes to snatch a thrilling 3-2 victory over West Ham.

Spurs looked on the brink of defeat when Manuel Lanzini's 68th-minute penalty put the Hammers 2-1 ahead, and they remained in front with one minute of normal time remaining, but Kane's double, the second also a spot-kick, completed a dramatic turnaround at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham academy graduate Harry Winks had earlier cancelled out Michail Antonio's opener with a goal on his first Premier League start for the club as Mauricio Pochettino's men recorded their first victory in eight matches.

Winston Reid was sent off in injury-time to round off a pulsating London derby that leaves West Ham 17th in the table, one point above the relegation zone, while Spurs sit fifth and three points off the top. For West Ham, it comes as a crushing defeat, but Slaven Bilic will at least take heart from his side's determined display, that yielded more than one goal for the first time in seven Premier League games.
