On This Day: West Ham rout Middlesbrough to secure top-five Premier League finish
West Ham United secured their highest-ever Premier League finish with a 4-0 thrashing of Middlesbrough on this day in 1999.
Harry Redknapp's Hammers routed Boro on a memorable afternoon at the Boleyn Ground to secure their best result since finishing third in the old First Division in 1985/86.
Frank Lampard kicked things off with a low, first-time shot from 25 yards that skidded past Mark Schwarzer inside four minutes.
On 26 it was 2-0 when French midfielder Marc Keller finished an outstanding move involving Eyal Berkovic and Trevor Sinclair.
Sinclair himself made it 3-0 with a neat touch and finish before completing the rout by again beating Boro's awful offside trap and confidently shooting past Schwarzer.
