West Ham ruined Gareth Bale’s Tottenham return with a stunning late fightback from three goals down to a thrilling 3-3 draw, while Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic endured a penalty nightmare in a 1-1 draw at Sheffield United.
Tottenham were leading 3-0 when Bale came on as a 72nd minute substitute for his first appearance since joining on a season-long loan from Real Madrid.
But Bale suffered a debut to forget as Tottenham capitulated in astonishing fashion.
The Wales star was one of the main Tottenham culprits as he missed a golden opportunity to wrap up the points before West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini snatched a stoppage-time equaliser.
It was just the third time in Premier League history that a side has avoided defeat despite trailing by at least three goals going into the 80th minute.
