Son Heung-min and Pedro Obiang score stunning goals at Wembley

Son Heung-min and Pedro Obiang score stunning goals at Wembley

The midfielder picked up the ball 30-yards from goal, took one touch to get the ball out from under his feet, and unleashed a venomous shot that beat Hugo Lloris high and true just inside the near post.

From that chance, the ball spiralled up in the air as Adrian came rushing out of his goal to punch it away.

It was West Ham's first shot of any description in the game and, given Spurs had managed 20 by the time they fell behind, a share of the spoils was the least they deserved. "They are disappointed they didn't win it, but, in the end, I'm pleased with the recent results".

Tottenham poured forward in a desperate search to salvage something and Son delivered when he lashed a 25-metre effort past Adrian to finally puncture West Ham's resistance.

"My goal is not important, a attractive goal or a dirty goal, it doesn't matter tonight", he said. His side had 31 shots in total - with eight on target - compared to just one for the visitors.

It took Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino until 30 minutes into the second half to make his first substitution even though it was clear to all that something needed to be changed in the Tottenham line-up. The Hammers meanwhile were hovering just one point above the relegation zone and knew that a positive result would help provide some separation from the bottom three.

"I'm thrilled to come away with a point, Spurs have some really exciting young talent, I have seen them beat Real Madrid here, beat teams by four or five. I am not going to say anything about the referee, I trust in them".

West Ham manager David Moyes was understandably happy after watching his side hang on for a valuable point against Tottenham on Thursday night. It was a great finish from Obiang, unexpected, . "Obiang's goal was better - the strike was unbelievable", he said. We are defending well which gives us a chance against the top teams.

"I think he's (Moyes) done very, very well", Mills told Premier League Daily on Sky Sports. I want the players to look up the table.
