Classic match

West Ham United 2-1 Arsenal
Premier League
3 October 1999

Harry Redknapp's West Ham had already played 15 games before Arsenal visited the Boleyn Ground in the first few days of October 1999.

The Hammers triumph in the InterToto Cup and consequent UEFA Cup commitments meant their fixtures were coming thick and fast.

Paolo Di Canio scored twice and Marc-Vivien Foe saw red as the home side recorded an excellent win to move up to ninth place in the Premier League.

Redknapp's team went onto finish inside the top ten whilst opponents Arsenal ended the season as runners-up to Manchester United.
