Man United Play Out 1-1 Draw With West Ham, Move Into Third On Table

Manchester United rescued a 1-1 draw against West Ham on Wednesday thanks to a Mason Greenwood second half goal, putting them in good position to qualify for the Champions League next season.

Ole Gunna Solskjaer‘s side fell behind after Michail Antonio scored a penalty in first-half stoppage time with his eighth goal in six games after Paul Pogba raised his hands to block a Declan Rice free-kick.

But teenage forward Greenwood struck after the interval with his 17th goal of a stellar first season as a senior player to lift United into third place in the Premier League.

Both sides had chances to win it, with under-pressure David de Gea producing a fingertip save to repel a deflected Jarrod Bowen effort and substitute Odion Ighalo turning a near-post effort wide at the other end.

United are ahead of fourth placed Chelsea on goal difference after the Blues lost 5-3 at champions Liverpool.

They will finish in the top four if they draw or win in their decisive showdown with fifth placed Leicester on Sunday.

United are one point ahead of Leicester going into their last game of the season at the King Power Stadium.
