West Ham United 2-1 Manchester United
Division One
2 February 1986

The Boys of 86 bounced back from defeat in their previous league game to Ipswich Town with a notable victory over Manchester United on this day 28 years ago.

20,170 turned up at the Boleyn Ground to watch Mark Ward and Tony Cottee net the goals which downed the Red Devils by a 2-1 scoreline.

West Ham would go on to defeat Manchester United again later that month in the FA Cup, while the Club's league form got better and better over the spring.

This victory left the Hammers fifth in the table, and they would go on to finish a Club record third in the top flight.
