As a result of the Red Devils’ victory over the Hammers on Sunday, they have moved up into the top five of the standings.
On the 14th day of the Premier League season, Manchester United successfully finished their contract with a tight victory over West Ham (1-0), which took place this Sunday afternoon. Marcus Rashford is the only player who has scored a goal thus far.
It came as a bit of a surprise right before kickoff when the match sheet revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo would be starting the game. This would be his second start in a week, following the one he had in the Europa League versus Sheriff Tiraspol. After his bad behaviour in the match against Tottenham on October 16, the Portuguese player was removed from the squad for the upcoming league match against Chelsea.
Even if the Portuguese were completely selfless and charitable in their endeavours, they were unsuccessful in practically every endeavour they attempted. Marcus Rashford, who rose over Kehrer to score a header off an Eriksen cross, became the go-to player for the Red Devils as a result. It was a “Ronaldesque” goal, and it was his 100th goal while wearing the colours of Manchester United. It capped off a dominant first half in grand fashion.
David de Gea replied to Luis Enrique
However, Erik Ten Hag’s men were never able to put an end to the game, and the previously subdued Hammers eventually became active and attempted to take advantage of the situation. They were unlucky enough to fall on a gigantic David de Gea, who had three key saves in the final ten minutes, which infuriated the West Ham attackers.
The fact that the Spanish goalkeeper wasn’t included on Luis Enrique’s preliminary roster for the upcoming World Cup despite the fact that he showed tonight that it may have been a mistake
Because of this victory, Manchester United is now in fifth place, moving up one spot to surpass Chelsea in the standings. West Ham has fallen back into its previous position, which is thirteenth in the standings.
