Tottenham Hotspur rising star Harry Winks has admitted to BT Sport that things were "a blur" for him after he scored the first equaliser in the dramatic 3-2 win over London rivals West Ham on Saturday evening.

Spurs had fallen behind to Michail Antonio's opener before Winks, making his first Premier League start for his boyhood club, was in the right place to convert a rebound to equalise.

Though the White Hart Lane hosts would fall behind again in the second half, two late goals from Harry Kane sealed a thrilling win in the dying minutes.

For 20-year-old Winks, it was a moment and a game never to forget as he capped his 12th appearance in all competitions and first league start with a goal.

He told BT Sport after the game: "I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to go out there and play.

"For me after I scored it was just a blur. It was brilliant. I thought all the lads were brilliant today but for me I am just over the moon still. I’m just going to see my family and celebrate with them."

Clearly still struggling to comprehend what had happened, he added, as quoted by Tottenham's official Twitter account: "I'll tell you, that is the one moment in my life that I can never repeat, it's just absolutely brilliant. I can't explain it.

"Being a Spurs fan and scoring the equaliser in a derby against West Ham, it was brilliant."

Winks has been a fledgling star at White Hart Lane since making his first-team debut in 2014-15.

He will now be hoping that his first goal can prove to be the gateway to increased involvement in the Premier League for the club he joined as a boy.
