Goalkeeper Robert Green saved a last-minute penalty from Jermain Defoe to ensure West Ham earned a point in a thrilling clash at Upton Park.

Tottenham centre-half Michael Dawson hauled Spurs level with a header in the 66th minute after a first-half blunder by Younes Kaboul had allowed Carlton Cole to open the scoring for the Hammers.

But former West Ham striker Defoe earned a controversial penalty when he was brought down by Lucas Neill in stoppage time but the Spurs striker´s spot-kick was kept out by Green.
