Classic match

West Ham United 7-0 Liverpool
Division One
1 September 1930

West Ham United recorded an incredible 7-0 win over Liverpool on this day 83 years ago.

The Hammers defeated the Reds 4-1 at the Boleyn Ground the previous season, and they would go on to even better that result with a ruthless display.

Vic Watson (pictured) scored four of the goals - he would notch 14 in only 18 league games that season - to do most of the damage.

Watson, who scored 326 goals in a fruitful Hammers career, scored 13 hat-tricks in his time at West Ham.

Stan Earle also got in on the act with two goals, while Wilfred James' strike completed the Hammers' tally of seven.
