United triumph in pictures

The 2-1 home victory against Manchester United was the second time in a week that West Ham United have fought back from going a goal down to claim the three points. Prior to that, the team had not done so in the league all season.

The day began memorably with a rapturous reception for Carlos Tevez, but once the referee blew his whistle it was clear all that mattered to the home faithful was the performance of those in claret and blue.
