Les Ferdinand returned to haunt his former club and propel West Ham to a vital victory against their London rivals as their battle against relegation intensified.

The frontman had left Spurs for east London just a couple of months earlier and he notched his first goal for the Hammers against his old side with 31 minutes on the clock, with Kasey Keller unable to keep out his low shot.

Soon after the restart Keller was again picking the ball out of his own net as his fumble allowed Michael Carrick to put the Hammers two up.

More chances followed for the hosts, but they couldn't put more gloss on an already emphatic victory at the Boleyn Ground.
