West Ham players past and present react on Twitter to Tottenham draw

Upton Park

West Ham United stars of past and present took to Twitter to react as the Hammers threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 at Tottenham.

West Ham hearts were broken in the dying seconds against Tottenham on Sunday, as Harry Kane's late goal rescued a point for Spurs.

The Hammers were superb at White Hart Lane, and seemed to be home and dry as they entered the final stages with a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Senegalese duo Cheikhou Kouyate and Diafra Sakho.

However, a fluke Danny Rose goal and Kane's strike - which came as a rebound from his own saved penalty with just seconds to play - meant West Ham went back to East London with just the one point rather than three.

It was a blow to lose the two late goals, but West Ham can take a lot from their performance - especially having lost 4-0 to West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup last week.

Current players took to Twitter after the game, with goalkeeper Adrian bemoaning the Hammers' luck after seeing Kane's saved penalty roll straight back to him, whilst left back Aaron Cresswell said the draw felt like a defeat.

Goalscorer Kouyate also tweeted his delight at winning the man of the match award, and some famous West Ham figures from down the years also got involved on social media.

Former winger Trevor Sinclair and England legend Sir Geoff Hurst both tweeted that West Ham fans need to get behind under-fire manager Sam Allardyce after a great display at White Hart Lane.
