On This Day: Yarmolenko strikes late to sink Chelsea


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

West Ham United gave their survival hopes a huge boost on this day a year ago, when Andriy Yarmolenko's final minute goal sealed a dramatic 3-2 win over Chelsea.

The Ukraine forward struck at the death to settle a see-saw contest that saw the teams trade the lead.

Willian opened the scoring with a first half penalty, before Tomáš Souček's first goal in Claret & Blue levelled the game on the stroke of the interval.

Michail Antonio then knocked the Hammers in front, only for Willian's second of the game to bring it back to 2-2.

There was still time for one final twist in the tale, as David Moyes' men earned their first post-lockdown victory in stunning style.
