On This Day: Ings at the double to fell Forest

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

A Danny Ings’ double on his full debut, combined with a fine Declan Rice finish and a Michail Antonio header, fired West Ham United to an impressive 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest on this day a year ago.

All the goals came in the final 20 minutes, but it was no less than the Irons deserved for their dominance throughout the game. 

Ings, making his first start since joining the Club the previous month from Aston Villa, turned Jarrod Bowen’s cross past Keylor Navas on 70 minutes for his first goal in Claret and Blue, before scoring his second just three minutes later from Saïd Benrahma’s cut-back.

Captain Rice put the game to bed on 78 minutes with a delightful curling strike from the edge of the penalty area, before two substitutes combined barely a minute after coming on to add the fourth; Pablo Fornals crossing for Antonio to head home.

The victory over Forest was West Ham’s joint-biggest win of the season and moved David Moyes’ side out of the bottom three, up to 16th, in the Premier League.

We would, of course, go on to finish 14th and memorably lift the UEFA Europa Conference League title in Prague.
