Classic match

West Ham United 3-1 Newcastle United
Premier League
20 September 2008

West Ham United's last involvement on this date in the calendar was a memorable one as they swept aside Newcastle United at the Boleyn Ground five years ago.

The Magpies were never in the contest once David Di Michele had given the hosts an eighth minute lead.

The same player doubled the advantage before the break, and Matt Etherington's 53rd minute goal made it 3-0.

Newcastle did pull one back through Michael Owen, but it was of little consequence as the Hammers ran out easy winners.
