Classic match

Chelsea 2-3 West Ham United
Premier League
28 September 2002

Bottom of the table and without a win West Ham travelled to Stamford Bridge to face an unbeaten Chelsea side.

Despite dominating from the off the Hammers fell behind to Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's penalty but this only served to inspire the away side.

Jermain Defoe equalised five minutes before half-time and Paolo Di Canio struck a wonder goal to give Glenn Roeder's team the lead.

Gianfraco Zola curled in a free-kick to level things up before mercurial Italian Di Canio hit the winner seven minutes from time to give West Ham their first win of the season.

Despite this win the Hammers were relegated from the Premier League with a record high 42 points.
