Manchester United vs West Ham LIVE!

A first-half header from Marcus Rashford, his 100th goal for Man United in all competitions, was enough to earn his side a 1-0 victory over West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday. United burst into life in the 38th minute when Rashford powered a bullet header into the net on the end of Christian Eriksen's sublime cross to give the home side the lead.

Veteran forward Cristiano Ronaldo wasted a golden chance to double United's lead early in the second half, firing wide from a good position, before West Ham upped the ante. The visitors piled on the pressure as the match wore on, with David De Gea twice called into action to deny West Ham substitute Michail Antonio, producing superb stops on both occasions.

Another sensational save from De Gea to deny Declan Rice right at the death preserved United's victory which takes them above Chelsea into fifth in the standings, one point behind fourth-placed Newcastle United. West Ham drop to 13th.

“A really poor afternoon. Devoid of service but has to do more to get involved. Looks hurt by Lucas Paqueta’s absence. Booked.”

A tough one to take for the Hammers

Marcus Rashford gives his reaction

18:18 , Marc Mayo

“I don’t think we played our best today but we’re gonna have to win games like that. We want to play better but it’s nice to win games like that too.”

The winning goal

18:15 , Marc Mayo

What a finish to that match!

18:09 , Marc Mayo

Full time!

18:06 , Marc Mayo

Man United survive to claim all three points!

CHANCE WEST HAM!

18:05 , Marc Mayo

90+3 mins: Fornals escapes down the right and Maguire blocks Bowen’s goalbound effort!

And Rice flies in a piledriver that De Gea tips wide!

18:04 , Marc Mayo

90+2 mins: Man United defend a corner well and Fred rushes clear, the ball comes back pretty promptly but again drifts towards a home player.

18:02 , Marc Mayo

90 mins: Three minutes added on as Man United repel the free kick.

18:02 , Marc Mayo

89 mins: Zouma flies in with a stout sliding tackle to halt Rashford on the counter.

West Ham have the territorial advantage as the hosts continue to sit deep...

A booking for Fernandes as he trips Bowen. That’s his fifth of the season and a one-game ban.

OFF THE POST!

17:59 , Marc Mayo

86 mins: That would have been the match!

McTominay crosses for an unmarked Fred and Areola is beaten all ends up... as the header strikes the outside of the post!

17:57 , Marc Mayo

84 mins: Zouma is in the midst of it again as the Hammers try once more, yet he can only send a touch over the bar as McTominay puts him under pressure.

The Frenchman looks in a bit of bother but gets up after a bit of an impact injury.

CHANCE WEST HAM!

17:55 , Marc Mayo

82 mins: Antonio forces De Gea into a bit of action with an attempt from range as West Ham push for a leveller.

The ball comes deep to Cresswell and a lovely ball in is headed goalwards by Zouma... De Gea with a great save denies him!

CHANCE WEST HAM!

17:50 , Marc Mayo

78 mins: A cracking whipped ball from Rice at a free-kick almost bounces to Dawson at the back stick, but Martinez is there to stoop and clear.

After the restart, Kehrer receives a booking for a cynical foul on Rashford and Ten Hag brings Fred on for Eriksen.

17:49 , Marc Mayo

77 mins: Fornals replaces Downes in a forward-thinking change from Moyes.

17:48 , Marc Mayo

75 mins: All a bit low-key at Old Trafford - something Ten Hag may not mind too much - as West Ham’s momentum fades.

Nothing too threatening coming from the hosts though, a Shaw cross clipped clear.

17:44 , Marc Mayo

72 mins: Soucek booked for up-ending Shaw.

17:41 , Marc Mayo

68 mins: Antonio’s trademark hustle and bustle is causing issues for Man United, and he helps open a chance for Dawson from outside the box.

Right place, wrong man. His shot flies off target.

Moments later, Benrahma slaps a long-ranger into De Gea’s palms. There is certainly something here for the Hammers.

17:38 , Marc Mayo

66 mins: Dalot has been a force in the air today and cleans up a fine Rice cross from the right, which Antonio was about to bury just as Rashford did in the first half.

17:34 , Marc Mayo

62 mins: Man United are looking to exploit the space West Ham are just starting to open up, Ronaldo having two half-sights of goal in quick succession. Neither hit the target.

Malik Ouzia at Old Trafford

17:34 , Marc Mayo

A really poor afternoon for Gianluca Scamacca, that. More than any other player, he looks to be suffering for Lucas Paqueta’s absence.

17:32 , Marc Mayo

60 mins: Ten Hag’s first change of the day, Elanga off for McTominay. That should add some steel to the midfield, Fernandes going wide right.

17:31 , Marc Mayo

59 mins: Some shouts from the Stretford End for a penalty after Zouma puts his body on the line in a Man United move but it’s waved away as what was a rare foray forward from the hosts subsides.

And now West Ham want a spot kick after Maguire bumps off Bowen, no dice! Not exactly a strong call, to be fair.

17:28 , Marc Mayo

55 mins: Maguire rather gets away with one as Kehrer plays the pass into Bowen, the West Ham man chopped to the ground in a 50/50 in which the defender certainly didn’t get anything on the ball.

West Ham moving up the pitch in this scrappy spell of the match.

Moyes turns to his bench, Scamacca off for Antonio.

17:23 , Marc Mayo

52 mins: Confidence is flowing for Rashford as he cuts inside on Kehrer and hits his cross-goal shot very sweetly - yet it’s just off target and Areola goes untroubled.

17:23 , Marc Mayo

50 mins: Another opening for West Ham as Scamacca places a shot into Martinez, the ball bouncing high as the Italian launches a high foot and arrives second as it drops...

And he’s already on a booking!

Referee Chris Kavanah gives a foul, and the benefit of the doubt.

17:20 , Marc Mayo

47 mins: Bowen scampers into space for the first time this evening, rolling a decent ball towards Scamacca but Maguire wins the physical battle and sees the ball out of play.

Kick off!

17:17 , Marc Mayo

A change in goal for West Ham, Fabianski hurt by that earlier clearance with Eriksen and replaced by Areola.

Second half coming up!

17:16 , Marc Mayo

Can West Ham make some inroads into Man United’s lead? Antonio, Fornals and Lanzini are Moyes’ chief attacking options off the bench.

17:11 , Marc Mayo

This scoreline would send Man United to fifth, above Chelsea, and even knock West Ham below Everton to 13th by virtue of goal difference.

Check out the live table here!

17:05 , Marc Mayo

A landmark goal for Marcus Rashford!

Half time!

17:01 , Marc Mayo

Rashford’s goal has Man United 1-0 up at the break.

17:00 , Marc Mayo

45 mins: Man United threaten number two as Fernandes whips a ball in for Ronaldo, who leaps mightily but falls just short of diverting it home.

An example that these two can play together.

One minute added time.

16:59 , Marc Mayo

43 mins: West Ham enjoy a bit of a spell in the Man United half as the clock ticks towards half time.

A short stoppage pauses their attempts though as Shaw took a hand in the eye at one ball in, something he’ll recover from.

Malik Ouzia at Old Trafford

16:56 , Marc Mayo

That is some goal. The interplay and control between Fernandes and Eriksen, the quality of the Dane’s cross and then Rashford’s desire to get on the end of it. He came steaming in above Thilo Kehrer and it’s a terrific header.

GGGOOOOAAALLL!!!! Man United 1-0 West Ham | Rashford

16:53 , Marc Mayo

38 mins: RASHFORD HEADS HOME!

A beautiful leap from the attacker beats Kehrer from Eriksen’s cross and he has his 100th Man United goal - in front of Gareth Southgate!

Malik Ouzia at Old Trafford

16:51 , Marc Mayo

David Moyes is absolutely livid with the linesman again, this time with the delay of that flag. I’ve got to say I agree with him there - two players hurtling at each other in an aerial challenge that was completely needless. Good job Eriksen pulled out.

CHANCE MAN UNITED!

16:51 , Marc Mayo

35 mins: West Ham can’t fully clear a corner and Zouma makes a vital header to deny Ronaldo a free run on goal, before Elanga scuffs a far-post effort across the face of goal.

It’s kept alive and Scamacca fouls Rashford by the corner flag for the first booking of the evening.

16:50 , Marc Mayo

33 mins: United’s fluid frontline is really lacking width although there are plenty of attackers in the middle channel to exploit.

Eriksen attempts a rare dart in behind that is flagged for offside, Fabianski heading clear and initially looking to have an issue before playing on.

16:45 , Marc Mayo

30 mins: Kehrer emerging as a low-key threat although Dawson’s pass to play him in down the right wing comes far too late, and is in any case overhit. Goal kick.

16:41 , Marc Mayo

26 mins: Benrahma remains West Ham’s key outlet down the left and he pulls out of a challenge with De Gea as the goalkeeper rushes out.

West Ham are upping the ante with a lovely run from Kehrer, darting through challenges to lay a ball into Bowen. His on-target effort wouldn’t have counted - he’s offside.

Malik Ouzia at Old Trafford

16:40 , Marc Mayo

Ugh. That’s twice now Harry Maguire has just been hopelessly exposed in transition as Scamacca flicks a pass to Benrahma. West Ham win a corner but it comes to nothing.

16:38 , Marc Mayo

22 mins: A few voices of irritation from the Red Devils faithful as some wayward passes break down their attacks, although United are doing well at pressing high to win it back.

Fernandes the latest to fly a pot-shot into a defender’s midriff.

Malik Ouzia at Old Trafford

16:35 , Marc Mayo

That is not a good decision from the linesman to call Rice’s run out of touch, who also has the misfortune to be running the line that runs in front of David Moyes’ technical area. Suffice to say he’s let him know all about it.

Malik Ouzia at Old Trafford

16:33 , Marc Mayo

We’ve seen both sides of Said Benrahma in 17 minutes here. Some poor decision-making a minute ago that led to Ronaldo’s shot but also some wonderful bits of trickery.

16:32 , Marc Mayo

17 mins: A couple of hopeful attempts from range by Benrahma and Scamacca, after the former had produced an Antony-esque twirl on the ball to send his marker for an ice cream.

16:30 , Marc Mayo

15 mins: Close!

Dawson sloppily gives the ball away and Rashford, like his strike partner a moment ago, chooses to go alone and has a shot deflect up and over the bar.

Zouma powers a header clear from the corner before Dalot picks out Rashford well, a strong header well held by Fabianski.

16:29 , Marc Mayo

14 mins: Benrahma gets caught on the ball by Casemiro and Man United have their opponents outnumbered in the final third.

Ronaldo chooses to tee off from 25 yards, and lands his effort in Fabianski’s midriff.

Malik Ouzia at Old Trafford

16:27 , Marc Mayo

Apart from just passing the ball straight off the pitch there, Casemiro’s made a bright start in the centre of the pitch. The last time I watched United in the flesh they lost 4-0 at Brentford and their midfield... well, there wasn’t one.

16:26 , Marc Mayo

11 mins: Eriksen urged to shoot by the home fans as he sets himself from 30 yards out, but instead it’s a cute through ball cut over the top for Shaw - but Kehrer leaps to head clear.

16:24 , Marc Mayo

8 mins: Rashford, playing perhaps a little deeper in this very fluid attack, is getting in amongst it but cannot latch onto Casemiro’s loose crossfield pass.

A second-gear start to proceedings.

16:21 , Marc Mayo

5 mins: Rashford, on the eve of his 25th birthday, just holds back a touch as he arrives to plant his right foot on a cutback by the 18-yard line. Unsurprisingly, his effort trickles harmlessly wide.

An even start to this one.

16:18 , Marc Mayo

3 mins: A first shot of the game as West Ham break and Benrahma shoots early, his attempt briskly blocked and cleared.

A good spot on space to attack for the Algerian on the break, not fully utilised.

16:17 , Marc Mayo

2 mins: It is Fernandes on the right of a midfield three by the looks of it, Elanga fairly central with Ronaldo and Rashford.

Kick-off!

Away we go!

16:13 , Marc Mayo

Gareth Southgate is sat just over to the left of the press box. He will probably be hoping, perhaps more than anyone else inside this ground, for a good display from Harry Maguire.

Chance for Jarrod Bowen and Marcus Rashford to stake their claims, too. Lots of moving parties but they may well be competing for one spot in his squad.

Here come the players!

16:12 , Marc Mayo

Maguire and Rice lead out their teams at Old Trafford.

Kick-off coming up...

Around the grounds

16:08 , Marc Mayo

Arsenal have bagged a big win against bottom club Nottingham Forest in the Premier League’s early kick-off.

That sends them top once again, 11 points clear of Man United with West Ham six further back.

Oh Gary...

16:04 , Marc Mayo

Cristiano Ronaldo greets Louis Saha and even Jamie Redknapp before trotting off away from Gary Neville. Awks.

What can we expect of RonaldoxRashford?

15:43 , Marc Mayo

Erik ten Hag said he was happy with the pair playing up front together in the second half of the midweek win over FC Sheriff.

Will we see them as a strike partnership, or with Rashford on the wing... or even as the attacking midfielder with Bruno Fernandes out wide?

“I think tonight with Cristiano and Marcus in the back worked well,” the manager told reporters.

“I was happy with that. To develop the team takes time. You can’t go from zero to 100. You have to construct it from the outside, you need development before you go to the top, to the roof.”

The scene is set!

An overcast day in Manchester as fans mill into Old Trafford.

Harry Maguire starts for hosts

15:28 , Marc Mayo

A bit of a surprise in the Man United line-up as Harry Maguire starts, with Raphael Varane injured and Victor Lindelof absent from the squad due to illness.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford both start with Antony also missing after a knock in midweek.

Jarrod Bowen fit for Hammers

15:24 , Marc Mayo

Lots to digest from that team news, chiefly Jarrod Bowen shaking off an ankle knock for West Ham.

Craig Dawson also makes the XI having missed a couple of weeks due to a leg issue.

A whopping ten changes from the win over Silkeborg - only Said Benrahma survives the rotation.

The visitors line-up is in!

15:20 , Marc Mayo

West Ham XI: Fabianski; Kehrer, Zouma, Dawson, Cresswell; Rice, Soucek; Bowen, Downes, Benrahma; Scamacca.

Score prediction

14:53 , Alex Young

Two teams back to a reasonable degree of form after rough starts, this game could suit the Hammers’ style of turning up and upsetting the big boys.

A 1-1 draw.

Bowen injury scare

14:42 , Alex Young

Jarrod Bowen provided an injury scare for West Ham ahead of the game while Maxwel Cornet has suffered a setback with his calf issue.

Craig Dawson (leg) is yet to return and Lucas Paqueta (collarbone) should be back after Sunday’s game.

Martial still out

14:29 , Alex Young

Erik ten Hag will be without Anthony Martial once again as he continues his slow recovery from a back injury.

Donny van de Beek and Harry Maguire returned in the week, leaving Raphael Varane and Aaron Wan-Bissaka as the remaining absentees.

14:19 , Alex Young
