West Ham United earned their second Premier League win with a 3 – 1 Result against a lackluster and uninspired Manchester United side. The Hammers were excellent against the Red Devils of Manchester and seem to have really turned their Season around after a win against Everton and a draw against Chelsea Last weekend. While the problems continue to pile on for Jose Mourinho after a disappointing loss against Championship side Derby County and United now seem to be in a bad space as a Club.

West Ham opened the scoring after just five minutes, through new Signing Felipe Anderson who met Pablo Zabaleta’s cross with such skill and slickness and found the back of the net with a wonderful back-flick. Not at all bad for a debut Premier League Goal. West Ham had started well and dented an already demoralized Manchester United team early. Romelu Lukaku came close to equalizing for the visitors with a header that found the post in the 22nd minute. Lukaku’s effort was in vain as West Ham went on to score a second when Andriy Yarmalenko picked the ball up in the box got it on his left, pulled the trigger but got a heavy deflection off of Victor Lindelof to find the back of the net.
West Ham went into the break with a 2-0 Lead only to see that lead halved in the 71st Minute when Marcus Rashford flicked Luke Shaw’s Corner past West Hame Keeper, Lukasz Fabianski to give Manchester United some hope. Three Minutes later Marko Arnautovic ensured that West Ham would take all three points when Captain Mark Noble threaded a pinpoint pass to the Austrian who comfortably tucked the ball past David De Gea in a one-on-one Situation.
West Ham registered their first home win this Season and to get it against Manchester United will do their confidence a world of good. While United will need to really critically analyze themselves and quickly figure out what’s best for the Club.
