The Hammers trailed by a goal with ten minutes remaining but scored twice in five minutes to eliminate Spurs just days after they sacked manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Emmanuel Adebayor brilliantly volleyed home a Jermain Defoe cross in the 67th minute and just as it appeared as though Tim Sherwood would oversee a debut victory as boss, Sam Allardyce’s side stunned the north London crowd.
