Incredible. Tottenham looked to have had the game all sewn up around 82 minutes in but Manuel Lanzini's rocket in added time sealed off one of the Premier League's great comebacks. Lanzini's goal deserves to be watched over and over again.

UNBELIEVABLE!!! WEST HAM HAVE DONE IT!! A late free-kick for West Ham. Cresswell crosses to the near post and it comes out to Lanzini who fires in an absolute screamer!!! He fires an absolute rocket into the top corner off the underside of the bar! Truly incredible.
JUST WIDE FROM BALE! Bale comes in off the right and leaves Ogbonna on the floor before firing his shot just wide of the post! That would have made for some second debut!
FOUR minutes of added time with Soucek now playing as a striker.
YELLOW! Masuaku clatters into Moura and receives a booking.
- Own-goalDavinson SánchezTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! And just like that it is 3-2! Coufal's cross to the near post is headed by Sanchez into his own net! Unbelievable.
- GoalFabián BalbuenaWest Ham United
GOAL! A consolation goal for West Ham or something more? Cresswell's free-kick whipped to the far post is met by Balbuena who rises highest to nod it into the bottom corner. Game on?
- OffHeung-Min SonTottenham Hotspur
- OnLucas MouraTottenham Hotspur
OFF THE POST! Kane strikes the woodwork from close range to be denied a perfect hat-trick!
SUB! Lucas Moura is on for Son.
- Yellow cardTomáš SoucekWest Ham United
YELLOW! For Soucek for a late tackle on Kane.
SUBS! Fornals and Antonio come off for Yarmolenko and Lanzini.
- OffSteven BergwijnTottenham Hotspur
- OnGareth BaleTottenham Hotspur
SUB! So here we go. Gareth Bale makes his second debut for Tottenham after more than seven years since he was last in a Spurs shirt. He is on for Bergwijn while Ndombele is on for Winks. Bale's first touch is a free-kick which bounces into Fabianski's arms.
- Yellow cardAngelo OgbonnaWest Ham United
YELLOW! For Ogbonna for a poor challenge on Bergwijn.
West Ham have a corner which Cresswell delivers. It's cleared by Son at the near post.
Son finds Kane again, after some wonderful one-touch football on the counter-attack, but his shot is blocked by Balbeuna.
SHOT! Kane with another effort. He closes in on goal and hits it on the run outside the box, but his low effort is parried behind by Fabianski.
Aurier's cross into the area is caught by Fabianski. Spurs have looked a little flat in this second half. Perhaps it is time for Bale to inject some spark back into their attack.
Bowen's cross finds Soucek and his header looked to be going straight in, but Sanchez intervenes just in time to make a vital block!
Not the best attempt from Kane. He collects the ball around 20-yards out from goal and engineers some space to shoot off his left foot, but his effort fizzes over the bar.
THAT WAS A SITTER! How has he missed that! Antonio cuts inside and sees his shot deflect and loop up into the path of Fornals. But somehow, from a matter of inches out - with the goal at his mercy - he heads over the bar! David Moyes cannot believe it on the touchline. No one can believe it - he's made a mess of that!
Coufal's cross is flicked back into the box by Sissoko and into the path of Soucek, but the Czech international cannot connect with it on the volley before Masuaku fires over.
We're back underway for the second half!
- End of 1st Half
A brilliant block from Kane of all people in his own penalty box to deny Coufal a goalbound effort just before the half-time whistle blows! It's been all too easy for Tottenham so far and Kane is running rampant. Can West Ham find a way back into this? Keep it here for the second half...
TWO minutes of stoppage time at the end of this first half which Spurs has cruised.
Antonio strays offside. West Ham may need to make some changes at half-time if they are to find any way back into this. You fear for the Hammers if Bale comes on in the second half.
Bergwijn, the quieter of Tottenham's front trio this half, has a shot from the edge of the area but he fires well wide. A poor effort.
An aimless cross into the area from Bowen is caught by Lloris. West Ham look short of ideas when they go forward.
So nearly four for Spurs! A great low cross into the box from Aurier is met by the sliding Son at the near post, but his shot lands into the grateful arms of Fabianski. Good save.
We have hit a bit of a lull in the match. West Ham are slowly getting more of the ball but they are not doing a great deal with it.
Half an hour in and Tottenham already have a three-goal lead. Kane has been involved in every goal so far, with two of his one as well as setting up Son's opener. It's all been very comfortable for Spurs.
West Ham have a shot on goal! Antonio nods on for Fornals but his slightly tame effort is caught by Lloris.
Son's free-kick is headed into the air by Ogbonna before eventually West Ham clear. They look out of sorts. Play is stopped for a moment after Sissoko goes down with a head injury having collided with Antonio.
- Yellow cardMichail AntonioWest Ham United
YELLOW! For Antonio after a late sliding challenge on Son. The West Ham striker has not really been in the game so far.
- GoalHarry KaneTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! And there it is... another goal for Kane! Reguilon curls a brilliant ball to the far post and Kane is there unmarked to nod into the opposite corner. What a game the England striker is having! That's Kane's 11th goal in 13 appearances against West Ham.
Bowen rolls the ball into Antonio's path and he looks to have space to get a shot away, but he's narrowly offside.
Kane and Son have left West Ham in a really bad situation and so early on, too. Bale is not even on the pitch yet.
- GoalHarry KaneTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Well well well Tottenham have another one and it's Kane! Son gives it to the England international on the edge of the area. He nutmegs Rice before he fires his shot low into the bottom corner! That's his 14th goal in his last 12 appearances in all competitions. A goal and assist already for Kane and Son... not bad.
A dangerous corner swung into the penalty box is flicked on at the near post by Ogbonna before Sanchez shakily clears behind and deflects off a West Ham player for a goal-kick.
West Ham have a free-kick which Cresswell fires on goal. It's a powerful whipped effort but it does not curl in enough to trouble Lloris and crashes into the side netting.
A fantastic start by Tottenham and sloppy defending from West Ham. Spurs have had almost all of the ball at the moment with the Hammers yet to really get going.
- GoalHeung-Min SonTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Just 45 seconds in and Son is on the scoresheet! It's classic Spurs. Kane picks the ball up in his own half and plays a pinpoint ball over the top for Son to run on to. He squares up Balbuena before clinically curling his shot into Fabianski's bottom left corner. Too easy! What a start for Spurs!
- 1st Half
KICK-OFF! We are underway at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium!
Tottenham forward Heung-Min Son is very popular in South Korea, in case you didn't know...
Mourinho when asked pre-match it we will see Bale feature today: "We have three incredible attacking players on the bench. Gareth, Vinicius, Lucas and we have [missing] Dele and Lamela, who has an injury. Lo Celso is also injured but this is our squad in this moment. We have a lot of talent up there."
How much match action will Gareth Bale get today?
The 31-year-old, wearing the number nine shirt, in on the Spurs teamsheet for the first time since May 19th 2013.
Another interesting bit of Spurs team news is that Dele Alli is not even in the squad despite there being no reports of him being injured. No place on the bench for Erik Lamela either.
Are Tottenham making a case to be title challengers this season? Check this piece out below...
David Moyes returns to the dugout having recovered from coronavirus. He names an unchanged West Ham team to the one that beat Leicester 3-0 on October 4. Issa Diop, who tested positive for Covid-19 at the same time as Moyes, is also back and on the bench.
BALE ON THE BENCH
So that is the big news folks. Gareth Bale is on the bench for this crunch London derby. The Welshman will surely come on at some point. Carlos Vinicius is also on the bench for the Spurs and could make his debut.
Two Spurs changes to the starting XI. Eric Dier's injury during the international break means he is out with Toby Alderweireld coming in for the England international. Steven Bergwijn starts on the wing ahead of Lucas Moura.
Tottenham: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Reguilon, Ndombele, Sissoko, Hojbjerg, Bergwijn, Kane, Son.
Subs: Hart, Doherty, Davies, Winks, Moura, Vinicius, Bale.
West Ham: Fabianski, Ogbonna, Balbuena, Cresswell, Coufal, Rice, Soucek, Masuaku, Bowen, Antonio, Fornals.
Subs: Randolph, Fredericks, Diop, Noble, Snodgrass, Lanzini, Yarmolenko.
Hello and welcome to Eurosport's live digital coverage of Tottenham v West Ham in the Premier League!
Tottenham's 6-1 win at Old Trafford before the international break was a statement of intent and today we could see them make another one with Gareth Bale expected to make his second debut and impress today. West Ham, meanwhile, will be looking to continue their fine form having beat Leicester 3-0 and Wolves 4-0 the weekend before that.
Kick-off is at 4:30pm (BST) with team news coming right up...
