Gareth Bale’s second start at Tottenham was overshadowed by West Ham’s stunning comeback in a 3-3 draw on Sunday.
Manuel Lanzini’s outrageous 94th-minute goal saw the Hammers come back from three goals to save an unlikely draw in north London.
Bale, who joined Tottenham on a one-season loan from Real Madrid last month, made his first appearance for Spurs in 2,709 days when he replaced Steven Bergwijn in the 72nd minute.
Spurs took a 3-0 lead with just 16 minutes on the clock thanks to goals from in-form duo Harry Kane (2) and Heung-min Son.
The South Korean striker opened the scoring in the first minute after clinically passing Fabianski on a perfect one-inch ball from the England captain.
Kane got into the act when Son became a supplier seven minutes later.
The striker hit his England teammate Declan Rice, before launching a low shot in the lower left corner.
And Kane scored his tenth goal of the season when he managed the cross from Sergio Reguilon.
After the feel-good factor surrounding Bale’s introduction, everything went downhill.
Fabian Balbuena started the comeback in the 82nd minute, before Davinson Sanchez’s own goal three minutes later ended nervously.
Bale had a glorious chance to kill the game in added time, however, he dragged his shot at close range.
And his failure proved costly when substitute Lanzini scored a season-goal contender from 30 yards in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
