The stunning goal was greeted by jubilation all around the east London contingent inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as the Argentine earned David Moyes’ side what seemed at one stage a highly unlikely point.
Having been 3-0 down inside the opening 20 minutes, it seems the writing was on the wall for the visitors in the London derby.
However, with just 10 minutes left on the clock, goals from Fabian Balbuena, an own goal from Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez and that last-minute postage stamp effort from Lanzini saw the Irons pull off the most unlikely of turnarounds.
Here’s how Hammers reacted to the goal on Twitter…

READ WEST HAM VERDICT
A simply sublime goal from the 27-year-old who deserves all the plaudits having come off the bench to make such an impact.
An early contender for any goal of the season award from the Argentinian who’s effort with the outside of his right foot constantly drifted away from the outstretched Huglo Loris in the Tottenham goal.
