West Ham United 3-0 Leeds United
Premier League
30 March 1998

The Hammers eased past Leeds United on this day 15 years ago, maintaining a fine home record cultivated throughout the 1997/98 season.

Harry Redknapp's side would only lose twice on home turf all campaign, and took maximum points from 13 of their 19 Boleyn Ground league fixtures.

This result was never in doubt once John Hartson had given the hosts an eighth minute lead. West Ham soon doubled their advantage, with Samassi Abou netting one of his six goals for the season with 23 minutes on the clock,

A dominant Monday night performance was sealed after the break when Ian Pearce notched to round off a pleasing 3-0 success.

West Ham would go on to end the campaign eighth in the table with 56 points, just three behind fifth placed Leeds.
