West Ham 3-1 Manchester United: Hammers inflict more misery on Mourinho and his men

 

Westham United news

A dynamic West Ham performance brought a deserved victory over a listless Manchester United at the London Stadium (The guardian)

 

Alexis Sanchez was missing from the Manchester United squad while Paul Pogba returned following his midweek outburst with Mourinho.


The first half was brought to life with only five minutes into the game as the hammers new signing Felipe Anderson converted his first chance as a premier league player. Two minutes before half time the hammers went two up  courtesy of a Victor Lindelof’s own goal.


An usually quite Pogba was substituted in the 70th minute and soon after Marcus Rashford got one back for the red devils.  However, Manchester United’s celebrations were short lived as Marko Arnautovic sealed the hammers victory  with a well taken goal in the 74th minute.

West Ham Vs. Manchester united Post Match remarks

Jose Mourinho 

“The first goal was offside, but there’s no VAR. In the first half we had a good reaction but then an own goal. In the second half we took a bit of time to react. The goalkeeper made some good saves, their centre-backs had a fantastic match. Congratulations to the scout that found Diop, he is a monster.

“Then we scored for 2-1 and instead of the linesman’s mistake, it’s the referee’s mistake. It was a foul on Marcus Rashford. The third goal kills the game.

“Scott McTominay has a fantastic attitude. He’s aggressive, brave and he has quality on the ball. I’m really happy with the job he did.

“For many months people are asking for Martial, Martial, Martial. For many months they are saying Alexis Sanchez is not playing well enough. This week I tried to agree and give a chance to Martial.

“I have no complaints with the players’ attitude. I can have complaints with some quality and the mental approach in certain duels. You could see, for example, Snodgrass came on with an incredible attitude. You need a little bit of that – I don’t know if it’s the right word in English – humility, that genuine…. There are certain qualities that you have or you don’t have.”


Marko Arnautovic

 “It doesn’t matter how Manchester United set up. We have to do our job today and we did it today; that’s why we won. I’m there to help the team, to hold the ball and to score goals. I have nothing to say about [United], their problems have nothing to do with us.”


Mark Noble 

“We’ve had some good results and the confidence is high. You can see by the way we played that we didn’t come to stop them (Manchester united) – we came to win. The timing of all three goals was great for us. As soon as Marko went through I knew he’d score. That performance was fantastic for our fans.”
