Son strikes late as Spurs rescue point against West Ham United

An 84th-minute Son Heung-min stunner saved a point for Tottenham as they drew 1-1 against West Ham United.

West Ham went ahead with their only goal of the game when Pedro Obiang beat Hugo Lloris from 30 yards before Son also scored from long-range to level.

Spurs dominated the first half with Harry Kane, Davinson Sanchez and Christian Eriksen all going close.

Kane did have the ball in the net after 16 minutes when his shot deflected in off Winston Reid but the flag was up for offside.

The best chance of the first half fell to Kane on the half-hour mark when Serge Aurier’s header found him unmarked in front of goal. The striker failed to control the ball though and it trickled harmlessly wide.

Adrian was called into action again on the verge of half-time to tip Eriksen’s 20-yarder over the bar.

Spurs continued to attack in the second half. Kane had a penalty appeal turned down after going down from a Pablo Zabaleta challenge before Dele Alli sent a header over.

Obiang gave the Hammers the lead with their first shot of the game, thumping a sensational 30-yarder past Lloris.

Son did eventually make the breakthrough for Spurs six minutes before full time with another superb goal curling the ball into the top corner from 25 yards.
