WEST HAM'S five-goal tally on Saturday was the first time they have managed it since their trip to Derby County almost exactly two years ago.

That day they managed to cling on to their lead and win 5-0 thanks to goals from Lee Bowyer 2, Jona-than Spector, Matty Etherington and Nobby Solano, while Tyrone Mears appeared for Derby that day, just as he did for Burnley on Saturday.

Incidentally the last time the Hammers managed five at Upton Park was in the 5-0 drubbing of Plymouth Argyle in the Championship under Alan Pardew in February 2005 when Teddy Sheringham 2, Marlon Harewood, Malky Mackay and an own goal were the difference between the two teams.

Just to round things off, the last West Ham five-goal win at home in the top flight was on Boxing Day 2000 when Charlton were thumped 5-0 thanks to goals from Freddi Kanoute 2, Frank Lampard, Trevor Sinclair and a Richard Rufus own goal.
