West Ham United dropped two points they were seconds away from securing by allowing Tottenham to score twice in the final ten minutes, including the equalizer in the final seconds, and the Hammers would come away with just a point in the London derby, 2-2.
Things looked good for the first eighty minutes for the Hammers. They got the opening goal in the opening half hour as Cheikhou Kouyate headed in an Aaron Cresswell cross. Then shortly after the hour mark, they appeared to have the game in hand when Diafra Sakho scored. Mark Noble lifted a cross toward the far post that Enner Valencia leaped up to head but the ball cleared him and found Sakho instead, who was bombing forward while the ball was in flight and he gave it a proper poke to score his eighth goal of the season. Once they conceded the first goal to Spurs in the 82nd minute though, they began playing "not to lose" and it allowed Spurs an opening through which they were able to squeak through. Had Sam Allardyce known before the match began that it was to be a draw, he would probably take it, but he will not be happy with how this result was reached. Feb 22 - 9:23 AM
