Premier league news West Ham's Manuel Lanzini reflects on Spurs wondergoal Last spor news
MetiNews.Com - The Hammers midfielder scored a sensational equaliser against their London rivals to secure an unthinkable point after three goals in six minutes
Breaking News ! West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini has likened his sensational equaliser against Spurs on Sunday to one former teammate Pedro Obiang smashed in against the same opponent two and a half years ago. Lanzini came off the bench to rasp home a 25-yard howitzer into the top corner to complete a stunning comeback on Sunday as the Hammers scored three times in the final eight minutes to complete a sensational comeback. Tottenham had gone into a three-goal lead inside 16 minutes as Heung-min Son and Harry Kane (2) had the hosts in a commanding position. But West Ham plugged away and were by far the better team in the second half and they got their rewards through Fabian Balbuena’s header, a Davinson Sanchez own goal then Lanzini’s late touch of magic. At Wembley in April 2018, Obiang had let fly in a turgid game up to that point, the Hammers hadn’t even had a shot on goal, before he decided to rip one into the top corner from 30 yards to give the hosts the lead.

"Do you remember when we played Tottenham and Pedro Obiang scored a goal like a rocket?," he said. "It was similar to that one and it was fantastic because we were 3-0 behind and we turned it around. "It was perfect. I've wanted this for a long time. I am ready now, I am 100%. I want to help the team and this was the moment. "I love the fans, I love the Club, I've spent a lot of years here and it's like my second home. "We have a big squad, I am waiting for my opportunity and it was a fantastic goal.

Lanzini has found minutes hard to come by so far this season but he certainly took the opportunity manager David Moyes gave him. Moyes certainly doesn’t like to change a team that is performing well, as this current crop of players is, so Lanzini might still struggle for game time. Up next is Man City as the Hammers face the former and then reigning Premier League champions in their next two games as their brutal start to the season continues. “We know Man City, who we face next week, is a very big team, a good team. We need to keep going like this and I think if we play like this we have an opportunity to get something from that game too,” Lanzini added.
