Slaven Bilic has accepted Hammers fans won’t be rushing out to get a tattoos after the Palace away win but he hailed the win as one of the best victories of the season.
He told the media post match “Those wins at Arsenal, Liverpool and City were satisfying because they made history. We hadn’t won at those places for years.
“People are not going to go out and get a tattoo because we won at Palace but, for me, to come to Selhurst Park and do it in such style makes me so very proud.
“It was a London derby which means a lot to the supporters and I like Palace they are a good side and made it very hard for us. So winning was something special.
“All I am trying to do is work hard and I can guarantee that we won’t get carried away by what we have achieved with this performance.”
One West Ham fan did just that after the historic win at Anfield earlier this season. 24 hours before the Hammers travelled to Anfield, Hammers fan Jon High took to Twitter to make a bold claim.
He tweeted: “52 long years since the famous Irons won at Anfield. If we do it tomorrow I shall get a tattoo to commemorate the famous occasion!”
Over 700 retweets later, he headed down to the local tattoo parlour after the Hammers claimed the win. The tattoo of the result, along with the names of the three goalscorerers – Manuel Lanzini, Mark Noble and Diafra Sakho – and their goal times is now a permanent reminder.
