West Ham Beat Man United In Comfortable 2-0 Win

West Ham earned their second successive home win against Manchester United thanks to goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell.

Yarmolenko opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time, sending a low finish past David de Gea following patient build-up play involving Mark Noble and Felipe Anderson.

Cresswell sealed all three points for the Hammers in the second half with a superb free-kick into the top right-hand corner.

Chances were at a premium in a cagey first half at London Stadium, with Noble’s deflected effort from Pablo Fornals‘ free-kick the closest either team came to a breakthrough before Yarmolenko’s strike.

Juan Mata should have levelled for the visitors two minutes into the second half but failed to hit the target after connecting well with Andreas Pereira‘s low cross.

United’s injury problems at the start of the season continue as they lost Marcus Rashford who appeared to have suffered a leg injury in the second half.

Rashford, has gone five matches without a goal in open play before today and looked short on confidence throughout, failing to register a single shot before going off injured just shy of the hour mark.

The result lifts West Ham above the Red Devils in the table, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side remain three points off the top four and without an away league win since February.
