Without Pogba and Martial, Man United lost against West Ham

The disappointing performance at the London Stadium made Man United unable to have even 1 point against the hosts West Ham.

Goalscorers: Yarmolenko 44 ', Cresswell 84'.

Squad: West Ham (4-1-4-1): Fabianski - Fredericks (Zabaleta 80), Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell - Rice - Yarmolenko (Snodgrass 88), Noble, Fornals, Anderson - Haller. Subs not used: Ajeti, Wilshere, Jimenez, Balbuena, Sanchez.

Man Utd (4-2-3-1): De Gea - Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Young - McTominay, Matic (Fred 71) - Pereira, Mata (Gomes 81), James - Rashford (Lingard 61).

Welcoming Man United at home, West Ham United proved not to be afraid of the opponent when choosing the initiative to kick from the opening whistle. The hosts are the ones who control the bigger the ball and push the United team away into the home field.

On the other side of the front line, Man United lacked Pogba and Martial proved extremely deadlocked. The Reds barely created any significant chances in the first half.

The first half took place at a relatively slow pace, and while it seemed that it would end with a 0-0 draw, the goal suddenly appeared. In the 44th minute, from a relatively coherent attack, Filipe Anderson created a favorable opportunity for Yarmolenko to finish the danger, defeat David De Gea, open the match score. 1-0 is also the score for the first half.

Entering the second half, Man United had no other way to force to attack. Opportunities have come very clear to the Red Devils, but Mata and Maguire missed at very favorable distances.

As time went on in the final minutes, Man United not only did not create more pressure on the opponent's goal but also let the home team pressed the field in reverse.

In the 84th minute, Cresswell made an exemplary free-kick double for West Ham, officially putting an end to the Red Devils' efforts.

With this result, Man United fell to 8th place in the rankings, while West Ham reached the top 4.
