Lucas Moura gave Spurs a 1-0 lead with a left-footed finish from just inside the area shortly before halftime, and Aleksandar Mitrovic equalised for the Premier League newcomer in the 52nd.

In contrast to Spurs, West Ham splurged almost £100 million in the transfer market to back new manager Manuel Pellegrini but still have no points to show for it after a second-half surrender to Bournemouth.

Instead, boss Manuel Pellegrini has drafted in Pablo Zabaleta, Robert Snodgrass and Javier Hernandez, who starts in attack alongside Marko Arnautovic. The most important game is Saturday.

However, Lawrenson did not hold back in his predictions for the BBC and warned the Hammers they could be set for another tough season if they do not improve their game defensively after being "far too open" against the Reds last time out.
