Arsenal FA Cup replay in 1989

On This Day: Hammers shock Arsenal in FA Cup replay

West Ham United advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup by beating Arsenal 1-0 at Highbury in an eagerly anticipated replay on this day in 1989.

The two sides had drawn 2-2 at the Boleyn Ground just three days prior, and the Hammers headed to north London with the unenviable task of toppling the league leaders on the road. 

However, it was to be a memorable night for West Ham and Leroy Rosenior in particular. The forward reacted quickest to a lofted ball from Alan Dickens, heading past the advancing John Lukic to seal the Hammers' progression.
