Gareth Bale finally debuted with the Tottenham jersey. After arriving injured, the former Real Madrid player had his first minutes of play with his new team in the game against West Ham, which came back in just 12 minutes when they lost by a clear 3-0.
For the second time this season, Tottenham saw two points blown off them in injury time. What looked like it was going to be a triumphant ride for Jose Mourinho’s team ended in a nightmare when West Ham managed to come back from 3-0 in the last minutes and rescue a draw that left the spurs upset.
Never before had a Mourinho team missed a victory when they held a three-goal lead.
Tottenham had come out like a whirlwind, which in the first quarter of an hour was already in command thanks to both Son and Harry Kane’s double. To make matters worse, Mourinho’s team had several occasions to score another goal, but in the end, fate wanted West Ham to pull off an epic and leave the London team without a victory.
Tottenham went ahead with a goal from Son in the first minute and Kane before 10 ‘had already put the second on the electronic with a strike from the edge of the area after scoring a spectacular shot against Declan Rice.
Six minutes later, the English ‘bomber’ took advantage of Reguilón’s pinpoint center to make it 3-0 and decorate his excellent month of October: he has scored 7 goals in the last three games (hat-trick against Maccabi in the previous phase of the Europa League and two doublets against Manchester United and West Ham).
Everything was on rails. Kane had the fourth in his boots in 79 ‘with a shot to the post, but from then on everything went to hell. In 82 ‘, Balbuena took advantage of a lateral foul to cut the gap. Two minutes later, bad luck got in the way of the ‘spurs’ when Davinson Sánchez scored an own goal.
Bale finally debuted with Tottenham and had the sentence on his boots, but failed
The nerves surfaced in Tottenham, who had the game in discount with a great personal move by Gareth Bale; who finally debuted with his new team. The ex-Madridista led a counterattack, got rid of two defenders, and was left alone in front of the rival goalkeeper; but at the decisive moment he finished off. The time was against West Ham, but just before the final whistle Lanzini, with a superb shot from the edge, managed to beat Lloris and rescue an epic point for the hammers.
