On This Day: David Unsworth seals second-half comeback against 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 came back from a goal down to beat Chelsea 2-1 in the Premier League on this day in 1998.

A first-half strike from Laurent Charvet gave the visitors the lead in east London, but the Hammers rallied after the break and levelled through Trevor Sinclair’s fine finish.

Five minutes later, defender David Unsworth capitalised on a well recycled corner by Ian Bishop and drove home to complete the comeback at the Boleyn Ground.

Harry Redknapp’s side went on to finish 8th in the Premier League that season, narrowly missing out on qualification to the UEFA Cup.
