Tottenham v West Ham - story of the match

Harry Kane netted a brace against West Ham
Harry Kane netted a brace against West Ham

Harry Kane scored twice in the final two minutes as Tottenham came from behind to snatch a 3-2 win over West Ham.

Spurs' unbeaten record was in jeopardy with the Hammers leading through goals from Michail Antonio and a Manuel Lanzini penalty, either side of an equaliser from Harry Winks.

But Kane, sent back from England duty last weekend to work on his fitness, equalised in the 89th minute and then tucked away the winning spot-kick moments later.


Gary Lineker: " What a turnaround. A Harry hat-trick wins it for @SpursOfficial."


Harry Kane. The England striker was enduring a frustrating evening until he arrived right on cue to tuck away Son's low cross. Then stayed cool to fire home the winner from the spot.


Winks was on hand to lash in the rebound after Vincent Janssen's shot was blocked by Darren Randolph. The look of joy on the youngster's face as he celebrated showed just what it means to score on your full Premier League debut.


Antonio's opener was his sixth goal of the season - and the sixth he has scored with his head. In fact the winger has found the net 11 times with his bonce in the Premier League in 2016. Not bad for a player who once said he "couldn't head the ball to save my life".
