Classic match (1) 

Manchester United 0-1 West Ham United
13 May 2007
Premier League

Carlos Tevez cemented his spot in West Ham United history with this famous winner at then champions Manchester United six years ago.

The Hammers headed to Old Trafford on the back of three successive wins, in the knowledge that a point would secure their top-flight status. Elsewhere, Sheffield United played host to Wigan Athletic, with any result other than an away win sufficient to see West Ham survive.

As it transpired, the Latics would run out 2-1 winners in the rain at Bramall Lane, courtesy, in part, of former Hammer David Unsworth's winner from the spot.

Fortunately, it mattered not, as West Ham too triumphed on their travels, when Carlos Tevez struck on the stroke of half-time, combining with Bobby Zamora to fire under Edwin van der Sar.

Despite the introduction of Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo on the hour, Alan Curbishley's side somehow clung on to set the seal on the 'Greatest Escape.'

Classic match (2)

Liverpool 3-3 West Ham United AET, 3-1 on penalties
13 May 2006
FA Cup final

One of the finest FA Cup finals of recent years, Alan Pardew's side were denied a monumental victory at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium by the brilliance of Steven Gerrard.

West Ham had earlier stormed into a two-goal lead, as Jamie Carragher put through his own net, before Dean Ashton seized upon a Pepe Reina mistake.

But Djibril Cisse and then Steven Gerrard levelled matters, only for the pendulum to swing back towards the east Londoners, when Paul Konchesky's 64th-minute cross deceived Reina and flew in.

That might have been that, but in stoppage time Gerrard dispatched a stunning 30-yarder into the bottom right-hand corner of Shaka Hislop's goal.

So to extra-time, and though the Hammers hit the inside of a post, there was to be no dramatic winner and Reina would subsequently save three spot-kicks in the shootout to hand glory to Liverpool.
