Chelsea players celebrate after scoring a goal

LONDON (Sporting Alert) — English Premier League results and standings from the matches that took place on Saturday, February 21 and Sunday, February 22.

Harry Kane converted a late equalizing goal to help Tottenham earned a point against West Ham United at White Hart Lane.

Cheikhou Kouyate and Diafra Sakho scored on either side of 45 minutes to give the Hammers a 2-0 lead after an hour of football, but the home side rallied to secure a 2-2 draw.

Danny Rose pulled a goal back in the 81st minute with a mis-hit effort that squeezed in at the near post before Kane continued his scoring form by pouncing on his own penalty miss to sweep home the rebound with the last kick of the game.

“When you analyse the full 90 minutes I think we deserved one point. We started very well, had three chances to score, including the one where Harry Kane hit the post,” Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

“I think we showed character – that’s the most important thing. Going into the last 10 minutes at 2-0 down, to finish the game 2-2 is something to be proud of.”

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce believes his team gave the three points away.

“I thought we were going to see the game through nicely but we made a huge mistake at the end,” Allardyce said. “Whether it’s a soft penalty or it isn’t, it is something we shouldn’t have done.

“It’s a real disappointment but it was a magnificent performance. The reason we lost the game was a bit of luck for them. We should have done enough at 2-0 up to see it out.

“That’s been our Achilles heel since the turn of the year. We were in front against West Brom and drew 1-1, we were in front against Manchester United and drew 1-1, and we were in front at Swansea and drew 1-1.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea had its lead at the top of the standings cut to five points after they were held 1-1 by Burnley on Saturday.

The ties now sees the Blues move to 60 points, with defending champions Manchester City second on 55 points, following their 5-0 hammering victory over Newcastle United to warmup for Barcelona in the Champions League this week.

Manchester United were beaten 2-1 at Swansea City, but managed to stay in the top four after Southampton were beaten 2-0 at home by Liverpool.
