Andre Ayew Bags Brace As West Ham Come From Two Down To Beat Spurs
LISTEN OCT 26, 2017

Ghana ace Andre Ayew bagged a superb brace as West Ham came from two goals down to stun in-form Tottenham Hotspurs 3-2 to reach the quarter-final of the Carabao Cup.

The Hammers seemed down and out at half-time but led by Ayew, they fought back to secure the famous victory at Wembley.

West Ham conceded after just five minutes as a high defensive line was exploited by Son Heung-min's pass through to Moussa Sissoko to stroke home. Dele Alli doubled Spurs lead on 37 minutes.

Ayew began the turnaround for West Ham by converting after Spurs goalie parried Edimilson Fernandes' thunderous drive and the Black Stars deputy skipper poked home the second following Manuel Lanzini's cutback.

Ogbonna completed the recovery as he rose highest to flick in a corner.

Ayew was voted man of the match.
Andre's double means he has been directly involved in more goals than any other West Ham player (10 goals, five assists) since August 2016.
