Classic match

Chelsea 1-2 West Ham United
Premier League
17 February 1996

West Ham United arrived at Stamford Bridge having been humbled 3-0 at Division One side Grimsby Town in an FA Cup fourth-round replay in their previous fixture - missing out on a potential fifth-round meeting with Chelsea.

However, Harry Redknapp's Hammers turned things around by pulling off a stunning Premier League victory over the Blues in west London. With Julian Dicks playing in a central defensive role, West Ham stormed to their fourth consecutive Premier League win, despite falling behind to Gavin Peacock's 13th-minute opener.

Dicks himself headed in the equaliser just after the hour mark before midfielder Danny Williamson completed the turnaround with 18 minutes remaining, silencing the majority of the 25,252-strong crowd inside the three-sided Stamford Bridge.
