West Ham defender Balbuena: Spurs fight-back down to team spirit

West Ham defender Fabian Balbuena was delighted with their fight-back against Tottenham.

The Irons were 3-0 down, but earned a point by drawing 3-3.

Balbuena told the club's website: "We didn't play badly and for periods we controlled the game. In the first half they showed they have quality up front and scored three goals too quickly, but the team never stopped playing and every time we tried to push forward to score a goal and in the end I think we deserved the one point.

"We work together every day and we know each other and try to put that in during the game and especially in this game because we knew we were playing against a good team and away from home, so I think the way we are working and the way we are playing we know we are in the correct way.

"We just have to keep going and keep working as we are doing."
