Live Match: Manchester United 1vs 0 West Ham United. Premier League

GOAL! Man Utd 1-0 West Ham (Rashford, 38)

THERE IT IS FOR MARCUS RASHFORD!

It’s a stunning leap from Marcus Rashford. “One of their own has his tonne up!” Martin Tyler says on commentary.

It’s a wonderful cross on a plate from Christian Eriksen as Rashford towers over Kehrer. He bullies Kehrer. Get out the way.

The ball is bulleted past Fabianski and Rashford wheels away in celebration.

36: WIDE! And still in play as Elanga’s shot ends up closer to the corner flag but it was a good chance after West Ham struggled to clear Shaw’s cross.

Good pressure now from United as a poor challenge from Scamacca on Rashford results in another free-kick in a good position. Yellow card for Scamacca.

The delivery from Fernandes is poor and doesn’t beat the first man.

34: It’s become a bit disjointed from United as Martinez looks long for Eriksen but Fabianski comes racing out to use his head to clear on the edge of the box.

The West Ham goalkeeper doesn’t land particularly well but he’s OK to continue without any problems. Eriksen was offside.

Sky Sports’ Gary Neville:

“If you said a few weeks ago that Malacia would be out of the team and Shaw back in, you wouldn’t have predicted that. But he’s been good since he’s come back in.”

Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

Sky Sports News reporter Melissa Reddy:

“There isn’t much control nor composure on display at Old Trafford, but that does lend itself to some entertainment at both ends of the pitch.

“West Ham are increasingly punishing United’s looseness in possession and their poor timing in or passive marking – with the exception of Lisandro Martinez. Saïd Benrahma has been particularly thorny for the hosts with Gianluca Scamacca also a threat.

“United have had five shots inside the box already, but a decisive edge is lacking from both sides.”

Sky Sports’ Gary Neville:

“It’s perfect for Ronaldo, almost free-kick range for him. He gets that dip. But he doesn’t set it high enough to cause Fabianski a real problem.”

14: Rashford gets back up to his feet after taking a prang but conceding the free-kick in the process. West Ham have done well here just to quieten the crowd and look to make this a slow-tempo affair.

15: SHOT! Casemiro looks to speed things up after good work from Elanga tracking back. Ronaldo is brought onto the ball to shoot from 25 yards but it’s straight at Fabianski.

“The pass, the run, the timing everything’s really good. Could he have cut across Zouma to try to encourage the foul?”

“It’s brilliant from Casemiro and Dalot. I don’t know if he gets alerted to Ronaldo behind him but Rashford doesn’t commit.”

4: WIDE! Brilliant ping from Casemiro on the diagonal to feed Dalot, who has improved so much in a United shirt and this is an intended pick-out for Rashford on the edge of the box but the ball comes at him a bit too quickly as he can’t readjust his feet quick enough as he miscues his effort well wide.

Sky Sports’ Jack Wilkinson:

“So much for the protection provided by Casemiro and Eriksen in the Manchester United midfield. One simple pass forward and West Ham were through on goal, and had Benrahma shown a touch more conviction, they might well have the lead.”

2: BLOCK! Manchester United’s high line very nearly ends up getting exposed here as Scamacca feeds Benrahma in behind Maguire, who has over-committed, but Martinez is back to block the shot.

That will encourage the Hammers
