West Ham vs Man United review

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh had earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo made the headlines again after scoring his fourth goal in three matches for Man United as they edged West Ham at the London Stadium by 2-1 in an entertaining Premier League game.

The Red Devils started the game brightly but failed to penetrate the water-tight Hammers defence in the opening minutes of the game.

David Moyes' side gave a good account of themselves after creating the better chances in the game with David de Gea called into action to make an important save from Jarrod Bowen.

However, the Londoners were rewarded for their persistence as Said Benrahma took a heavy deflection off Raphael Varane to send De Gea the wrong way. 1-0 it was in the halfhour mark.
