Man United clinched all 3 points in a tough game against West ham United

There was late drama at the London Stadium as Manchester United secured victory over West Ham United, with David de Gea saving a late penalty

Scott McTominay was back in the side as Jadon Sancho dropped to the bench while the Hammers were without star striker Michail Antonio due to a one-game suspension.


After a quiet start to the half, the game sprung into life on 23 minutes when Jarrod Bowen forced a save out of David de Gea after the United defence lost concentration, before Bruno Fernandes hit the upright minutes later at the other.

At the London Stadium, there was late drama as Manchester United defeated West Ham United, with David de Gea saving a late penalty.


While the Hammers were missing star striker Michail Antonio due to a one-game suspension, Scott McTominay returned to the starting lineup, with Jadon Sancho dropping to the bench.

When a calm first half, the game picked up on the 23rd minute when Jarrod Bowen forced a save from David de Gea after the United defense lost concentration, followed by Bruno Fernandes hitting the crossbar minutes later at the other end.

On 30 minutes, though, the Hammers broke the deadlock when Sad Benrahma's drive from the edge of the box deflected off Raphael Varane and soared past a flat-footed De Gea.


The celebrations were short-lived, however, as the visitors leveled the score. Ronaldo got on the end of Fernandes' cross and saw his shot saved, but he reacted quickly to slot home the rebound.


When Ronaldo was put in on goal by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, Hammers shot-stopper Lukasz Fabianksi rushed off his line to deny the Portuguese.

With the score at 1-1, Solskjaer made a double substitution in the final 20 minutes, replacing Mason Greenwood and Paul Pogba with Sancho and Jesse Lingard.


Lingard moved from hero to villain after firing a magnificent strike into the top corner to secure three points for United, and the choice paid off for the Red Devils manager.


West Ham were awarded a penalty for a handball on Luke Shaw late in the game, but De Gea proved to be the hero by saving replacement Mark Noble's penalty to give United the three points.
