On this day: Carroll and Calleri on target on Teesside


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

West Ham United made it back-to-back Premier League victories by beating Middlesbrough 3-1 at the Riverside on this day in 2017.

In what was an assured away display, Andy Carroll put the Hammers ahead with a towering header after just ten minutes.

The hosts responded well to going behind and levelled through Christian Stuani. Carroll however, pounced once more before the break, following a Michail Antonio drive from distance. The popular Geordie reacted quickest to Victor Valdes' parry and prodded home to give West Ham the advantage for a second time.

A tense second half followed as Middlesbrough went in search of an equaliser, but a well judged counter-attack by the Irons saw Jonathan Calleri given the ball on the edge of the 'D' and the Argentine striker duly obliged, turning the ball past Valdes for his first goal for the club.

You can relive the highlights above!
