Jamie Carragher has compared Manuel Lanzini’s equaliser for West Ham United to Andres Iniesta in the Champions League against Chelsea.

The Argentine sparked wild celebrations when hitting an unbelievable strike with the near-last touch of the game to rescue a point in the 3-3 draw against Spurs on Sunday.

Iniesta did something similar at Stamford Bridge back in 2009, and Carragher compared the celebrations after the goals.

Carragher heaped massive praise on David Moyes for his half-time team talk, after his side were 3-0 down at the break.

“I can’t believe it,” he said on Sky Sports.

“There’s players all over the pitch on the floor, Tottenham players can’t believe it. The last time I’ve seen a goal like that was like Iniesta’s at Chelsea, I’ve just seen a similar reaction.

“From nowhere, it’s 3-3. What a goal that was. What a strike, right in the postage stamp.

“What a team talk at half-time, Moyesy.”

Just to show how unlikely it was, WyScout highlighted that Lanzini had an expected goal tally of only 0.05% – unbelievable.

Lanzini came on when the scores were still at 3-0, with only 17 minutes left, and his introduction sparked the great comeback that will be remembered for a long time.

David Moyes will have a selection headache ahead of the game against Manchester City, and he will be considering serious changes.
