Hotspur

Spectacular stoppage-time equaliser by Manuel Lanzini scored enabled West Ham United hold Spurs and share points in the English Premier league, here on late Sunday night.

Spurs were in control in the first half after taking the lead in the opening minute, when Harry Kane's superb long pass released Son Heung-min to slot into the bottom corner.

Seven minutes later, Kane ghosted beyond Declan Rice and fired in the second and on 16 minutes Sergio Reguilon's cross was headed in by Kane to put Spurs three goals ahead.

Gareth Bale made his first-team return for Spurs with 18 minutes left and Kane hit the outside of the post as the home side looked to be heading for a comfortable victory.

But Fabian Balbuena pulled a goal back for West Ham with eight minutes to go before Davinson Sanchez turned Vladimir Coufal's cross into his own net three minutes later.

Bale shot just wide late on, before Lanzini completed a thrilling comeback with a thumping strike into the top corner from outside the penalty area.

Spurs are sixth on eight points, while West Ham climb to eighth on seven points.

Villa beat Leicester

Leicester,

Aston Villa claimed a fourth straight win to open the Premier League season as Ross Barkley scored in stoppage time to secure a 1-0 victory over Leicester.

Lille 2 points clear of PSG

Paris: Lille is top of the French league, undefeated and with the fewest goals conceded, after beating northern rival Lens 4-0 to move two points above defending champion Paris Saint-Germain. PSG has won five straight games but is playing catchup after losing its first two, and still has to play twice against Christophe Galtier's well-drilled Lille which places a high emphasis on teamwork.

Coach Patrick Vieira's Nice moved up to fourth place following a convincing 3-1 win at Saint-Etienne, which has dropped down to midtable after a positive start to the season.

Earlier, Memphis Depay showed Barcelona just what it's missing by setting up all of Lyon's goals in a 3-2 win at struggling Strasbourg.

Barcelona was poor in attack when losing 1-0 at Getafe on Saturday. In other matches, it was Angers 1, Metz 1, and Nantes 3, Brest 1.

Sassuolo win

Milan: High-flying Sassuolo scored three goals in 13 minutes to complete an extraordinary comeback from 3-1 down to win 4-3 at Bologna in Serie A.

The victory saw Sassuolo move second in Serie A, two points below early leader AC Milan.

It was also the third successive match that Sassuolo had scored four goals. Sassuolo, Milan and Juventus are the only teams still unbeaten in Serie A.

It is Sassuolo's eighth season in the Italian top flight and the team has never finished higher than sixth.

Edin Dzeko scored his first two goals of the season as Roma came from behind to beat Benevento 5-2.

Benevento had won two of its opening three matches but it was still a surprise when it took an early lead through Gianluca Caprari.

Udinese picked up its first points of the season - and scored its first goals - with a 3-2 win over a depleted Parma side.

The result means Torino is the only Serie A side still without a point after it lost 3-2 at home to Cagliari.

Fiorentina gave up a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Spezia.
