Classic match

West Ham United 5-3 Tottenham Hotspur
Division One
6 November 1976

Five different West Ham United players got on the scoresheet as the Hammers won an eight goal thriller against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at the Boleyn Ground.

The goals flowed at both ends, but John Duncan, Glenn Hoddle and Keith Osgood's strikes for Tottenham Hotspur were rendered irrelevant by the Hammers' attacking prowess.

For the hosts, Billy Bonds, Alan Curbishley, Billy Jennings, Trevor Brooking and Bryan 'Pop' Robson all hit the target as West Ham ended a six-match losing run.

The Hammers would go on to end the season in 17th place whilst Tottenham suffered the ignominy of finishing bottom of the table and being relegated.
