Quiz: Name the West Ham team which won 5-1 at Manchester City on Jimmy Greaves' debut!

Jimmy Greaves on his West Ham United debut against Manchester City on 21 March 1970


On Wednesday evening, West Ham United travel north to face reigning Premier League champions Manchester City with no shortage of historical inspiration to draw from.

While second-placed City are favourites, they were so when they welcomed a relegation-battling West Ham to Maine Road on 21 March 1970 - a day which ranks chiefly amongst many Hammers' favourites against the Citizens.

The match was also the West Ham United debut of Jimmy Greaves - the legendary England striker, who turns 80 later this week - having signed from Tottenham Hotspur.

Paired with a fellow '66 World Cup final hero up front, the duo ran riot in Manchester, netting a brace each on the way to a resounding 5-1 victory.

Almost half a century later, the First Division win lives long in the memory - but how well can you recall the starting line-up (and single substitute) that day, given their position and initials?
