On This Day: Zamora and Tevez see off Boro as Great Escape gains momentum


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

West Ham United's bid to pull off the Great Escape gathered momentum with a 2-0 Premier League win over Middlesbrough on this day in 2007.

Having won 2-1 at Blackburn Rovers in their previous match, Alan Curbishley's Hammers made it back-to-back victories with a fine all-round display at the Boleyn Ground.

Carlos Tevez set up Bobby Zamora for the striker's second-minute opener before grabbing his third goal in three games to cap a Man-of-the-Match display.

Even with these three points, West Ham remained 19th in the table and outsiders to stay up, but a further five wins in their final seven matches were enough to complete a miraculous escape from the drop.

Enjoy this Tevez-inspired win again and again right here!
