Pedro Obiang and Son Heung-Min provided two special goals, as West Ham United’s largely impenetrable evening was rewarded with a tenacious 1-1 draw against talented Tottenham at Wembley Stadium.

It was a tremendous defensive performance from David Moyes’ side, as outstanding displays from centerbacks Angelo Ogbonna and Winston Reid were rewarded in the end to prevent Spurs from taking all three points. It was more amazing, considering that West Ham had just one shot the entire match. Not just one “shot on goal” in the match, but one for the entire contest.

But oh was it a wonderful one shot, as Pedro Obiang scored a goal of the season contender for the Hammers to give them an improbable 1-0 lead in the 70th minute. This sensational goal is worth a billion replays on any night.

But just when it seemed like an unbelievable six out of six point week would come to West Ham, the Spurs South Korean start supplied his own wonderful hit in the 84th minute to level the match.

That Son special strike did not deter the Hammers defense from finishing out the job, and securing a valuable point into FA Cup Third Round weekend, when they will face off against Shrewsbury Town.
