Tottenham Collapses On Bale’s Return To Draw 3-3 Vs West Ham

Tottenham was transformed by Gareth Bale’s homecoming, just not in the way that Jose Mourinho had imagined.

LONDON: Tottenham was transformed by Gareth Bale’s homecoming, just not in the way that Jose Mourinho had imagined.

Cruising 3-0 when Bale came off in the bench in the 72nd minute against West Ham, Tottenham incredibly collapsed in a game it had been in control of to draw 3-3 in the Premier League on Sunday.

It was with almost the last kick of the game that Manuel Lanzini blasted a shot from distance into the roof of the net to snatch a point that seemed extremely unlikely when Son Heung-min scored in the first minute and Harry Kane netted twice by the 16th minute.

Agonizingly for Bale, after Fabin Balbuena pulled one back in the 82nd and Davinson Snchez scored an own-goal three minutes later, the on-loan forward from Real Madrid had a golden chance to score the fourth.

Released by Kane, Bale sent Angelo Ogbonna sliding to the turf as he drilled into the penalty area but managed to drag a shot wide.

Rather than any joy for Bale on his return to Tottenham after seven years, West Ham was celebrating in a way that seemed unimaginable in the first half.
