In a highly charged affair the full back produced a moment of magic as he took down a Michail Antonio cross and fired past a stranded Kasper Schmeichel.
And writing on Twitter, Lineker was keen to praise Cresswell’s strike despite it going against his old club.
They may have been given a bit of help but credit where it's due, that's one hell of a volley from Cresswell.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) April 17, 2016
He was not the only one to credit the full back either, as Richard Keys, Don Hutchinson, David James and Hammers youth product Lewis Page all shared their thoughts.

What a goal 1-2 unbelievable— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) April 17, 2016
Wow. Great goal. Hammers are doing Spurs a big favour here.— Richard Keys (@richardajkeys) April 17, 2016
The Foxes will now be hoping that the draw does not do their title hopes any harm as the season concludes.
The result took them eight points clear at the top of the table, with them now waiting to see how Tottenham Hotspur fare against Stoke City on Monday.
West Ham meanwhile will be left ruing another controversial decision going against them as their Champions League hopes took another blow.
