On this day - 27 April

Classic match

Manchester City 0-1 West Ham United
Premier League
27 April 2003

As the Hammers prepare for a trip to Manchester City this afternoon, they can look back on a victory at their former Maine Road home on this day a decade ago.

The Londoners were in grave relegation danger when they made this trek north, with City better off in mid-table.

A win over Middlesbrough the previous week had given West Ham hope, and they were to keep their prospects of retaining their top flight status alive with this three-point haul.

Frederic Kanoute came off the bench to notch the only goal of the game with nine minutes remaining.

Though the Hammers - under the temporary charge of Trevor Brooking - would go on to win at home to Chelsea a week later, then record a final-day 2-2 draw at Birmingham City, they would be relegated on goal difference with the unusually-high total of 42 points.
