Goooooooaaaaaaal – Man United 1-0 West Ham
Breakthrough at Old Trafford! Edinson Cavani plays the ball across the box for Marcus Rashford to slot in.
Into the final minute
West Ham best in Premier League at corners + nearly score there. Soucek allowed to wander to six-yard box + glance on Bowen’s delivery. Zouma at far post. United look 4-4-2, Cavani + Ronaldo up top, Martial left, Rashford right.
No breakthrough YET
The score is still 0-0 at Old Trafford
Bright start for the Red Devils
Solid enough start from United, but they need to tidy up their game around the final third. Greenwood has twice taken on shots when he could have crossed it, Ronaldo slammed a free-kick predictably into the wall and Dalot badly overhit one cross. There’s enough of the ball for United but they need to use it better when in sight of the West Ham goal.
