Tevez was given a brilliant reception by Hammers fans ahead of the draw.
And the Argentina striker responded by giving the cross-armed 'Hammers' salute, a move that delighted home fans.
Tevez said: "I have always had a fantastic relationship with the West Ham supporters. They were singing my name before the game and that's why I did that (Hammers salute), in tribute to them.
"I've always felt really at home there."
