On This Day: Hammers smash Spurs at White Hart Lane


West Ham United produced a superb all-round performance to thrash Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 at White Hart Lane on this day in 1994.

The Hammers, who were enjoying their first season in the Premier League, tore Ossie Ardiles' Spurs apart, with first-half substitute Steve Jones opening the scoring on 37 minutes.

Trevor Morley doubled the Irons' lead with a penalty on the hour-mark before future Hammer Teddy Sheringham pulled one back from the spot five minutes later.

Billy Bonds' side were not to be denied a famous win, though, as Morley struck his second on 72 minutes before Mike Marsh (pictured) completed the scoring eleven minutes from full-time.

West Ham would go on to finish 13th in the 22-team table on 52 points, seven points and two places ahead of their north London rivals.
