Manuel Lanzini scores for West Ham in 3-3 draw vs

Jose Mourinho Questions Tottenham Hotspurs Mental Strength After West Ham Collapse

Cruising 3-0 when Bale came off in the bench in the 72nd minute against West Ham, Tottenham incredibly collapsed in a game it had been in control of to draw 3-3 in the Premier League on Sunday.

In a game which saw Tottenham up 3-0 until very late in the match, it was the Argentine Manuel Lanzini to the rescue.

Rather than any joy for Bale on his return to Tottenham after seven years, West Ham was celebrating in a way that seemed unimaginable in the first half.

"Now, he might be as much a creator if he is played deeper or drops deeper, much the way that Harry Kane did when he provided all four goals for Son Heung-Min at Southampton recently".

Balbuena's header from Aaron Creswell's free-kick started the collapse before Sanchez turned a risky ball across the box into his own net.

It was the second straight league game at home where Tottenham had thrown away a winning position after being held 1-1 by Newcastle three weeks ago after conceding a penalty.

The Wales worldwide has yet to feature for Jose Mourinho's men, but when he does, Hoddle believes that he can be a tremendous asset to the team and to striker Harry Kane.

To have made more goal contributions than the great Henry is cast-iron proof that Kane is world-class, and Spurs fans will no doubt be claiming some bragging rights.

Goal! What a start from Spurs!

West Ham have bounced back from losing their opening two Premier League games with resounding 4-0 victories over Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leicester City.

With David Moyes back in the West Ham dugout after recovering from COVID-19, defender Issa Diop will also be back after a 10-day isolation.

West Ham has picked up a win at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in the past.

Bale is the box office new addition and was handed his second Spurs debut as a second-half substitute.

"It's a pity he couldn't score the fourth goal that could kill the game", Mourinho said.
