It was a nervy finish at the Old Trafford stadium where Manchester United held on to a solitary strike from striker Marcus Rashford.
The game was watched by England national team coach, Gareth Southgate who has been going to various venues as he prepares to release his roster for the World Cup. Marcus Rashford’s goal saw him reach 100 goals for his boyhood club while captain Harry Maguire put in a decent shift as he begins to rebuild his dented reputation with Manchester United fans. Goalkeeper, David de Gea was in impressive form and denied clear goalscoring opportunities from Kourt Zouma and Declan Rice to keep United in the game and the process now had 173 clean sheets in all competitions.
Christian Eriksen’s beautiful cross was met by a smashing header by Rashford in the 37th minute and it was enough for the 3 points at the Old Trafford stadium.
The result sees United climb to 5th on the log while West Ham slips to 14th. United will travel to Villa Park for their next league match on the 6th of November.
