On This Day: Tevez strike completes the greatest escape

 

Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with Basset & Gold....

West Ham United's hopes of securing Premier League survival looked all but over when they were left ten points adrift of safety following a dramatic 4-3 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur on 4 March 2007.

However, an incredible upturn in form saw the Hammers win seven of their final nine matches to stay up on the final day, completing the greatest of escapes when Carlos Tevez's goal scored a 1-0 win over champions Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Watch the highlights of an incredible afternoon again in our video above...
