With everyone lined up for a Spurs free kick, a pitch invader came sprinting through and, without breaking his stride, blasted a rather nice shot into the hands of West Ham keeper Adrian. 

The invader, who was being chased down by a steward at the time (an added pressure free kick takers don't usually have), was eventually caught and dragged away. His shot was still better than that of Christian Eriksen, who skied his attempt well over the crossbar.

This happened in the 63rd minute and it was arguably the best shot on goal of the match until Eric Dier scored on his Spurs debut in added time to give Tottenham a 1-0 win.
