Carlos Tevez strike completes West Ham United's greatest escape

On This Day: Tevez strike completes the Great Escape

West Ham United's hopes of securing Premier League survival looked all but over when they were left ten points adrift of safety following a dramatic 4-3 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur on 4 March 2007.

However, an incredible upturn in form saw the Hammers win seven of their final nine matches to stay up on the final day, completing the greatest of escapes when Carlos Tevez's goal scored a 1-0 win over champions Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Alan Curbishley's Irons ended the campaign in 15th place - an achievement that would have seemed far-fetched just two months before.

Watch Tevez's historic goal, which was scored on this day 16 years ago, again here!
