Spurs 2-2 West Ham

West Ham somehow managed to throw away a 2 goal lead at White Hart Lane in what must go down as one of the most sickening endings to a game that we looked to have comfortably wrapped up.

The match started rather evenly, with both sides struggling to really take control. Spurs went close went Harry Kane hit the post inside the opening 20 minutes, however it was the irons who opened the scoring when Kouyate headed home following some excellent buildup play.

The first half was seen out comfortably, and it was a case that a second goal would cement things – and on 62 minutes that goal came, thanks to a Diafra Sakho volley flying in at a tight angle.

It seemed today would be our day, but a Danny Rose strike on 81 minutes spelled a very nervy end to a game that really should have been wrapped up.

The referee somehow managed to find 5 minutes injury time, and it was in the 95th minute that West Ham conceded a penalty thanks to a push from Alex Song on Harry Kane.

It was a penalty that wasn’t. Kane went down without much contact and it simply shouldn’t have been given. An appalling decision from the referee.

Kane converted after an initial save from Adrian, and broke Irons hearts in what was the last kick of the game.

A bitter pill to swallow but a point away from home which must be respected. It should have been three, we know it, and so do Spurs. But we move on.
