Spurs clawed victory from the jaws of defeat after two late Harry Kane goals earned them a 3-2 win over London rivals West Ham.

Tottenham recorded their first victory in all competitions since October 2, after an injury time penalty from Kane sealed three points at White Hart Lane.

Michail Antonio had put the visitors ahead early on, before his header was cancelled out by a goal from youngster Harry Winks on his first Premier League start.

A Manuel Lanzini penalty restored West Ham’s lead on the hour mark, but a late Kane double sealed an important win for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Christian Eriksen thought he had put Spurs ahead with only five minutes played. The Dane was marginally offside when he had the ball in the net after latching onto a ball over the top.

However, it was the away side that began the first half with more impetus and the Hammers took the lead through Antonio on the 24 minute mark.

Cheikhou Kouyate’s towering header from a corner cracked against the bar and fell to Winston Reid, whose ball back into the box was met by the head of Antonio.

Spurs were booed off the pitch at half time, but reacted well and were level five minutes after the break.

A Vincent Janssen shot was driven straight at Darren Randolph, but the West Ham keeper could only parry into the path of Harry Winks, who converted the chance on his full league debut.

Spurs were almost ahead eight minutes later, a Janssen header looked destined for the back of the net before a stretching Randolph was able to block with his left boot.

However, the Dutchman soon made a less positive contribution at the other end of the pitch. His challenge on Winston Reid after 66 minutes led referee Mike Dean to award the Hammers a penalty.

Lanzini stepped up to slot home from 12 yards and put the away side ahead once again.

When Kane popped up in the box in the 89th minute to grab a goal, it seemed Spurs had rescued a point, but more was to come.

Just seconds after the restart, West Ham sub Havard Nordviet clumsily brought down Heung-Min Son, giving Mike Dean no option but to award the second penalty of the afternoon.

Kane stepped up and calmly stuck his spot kick low to Randolph’s right, sending the Spurs fans into raptures.

There was still time left for Winston Reid to receive a second yellow card for clattering into Kane late on.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side now travel to Monaco for a must-win Champions League tie on Tuesday, before travelling to Chelsea on Saturday.
