However, West Ham earned perfect revenge over the Red Devils during their trip to Old Trafford, with Manuel Lanzini scoring the all-important goal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer paraded a much-changed team during the clash, with Donny van de Beek, Dean Henderson, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Nemanja Matic all starting.

However, the team struggled to see off a spirited West Ham side that took the lead inside just nine minutes of gameplay through Manuel Lanzini.

Lanzini fired the hosts into the lead after a brilliant play by Fredericks who went between Telles and Jadon Sancho before cutting back to set up his teammate for the opener.

United had a chance to draw level five minutes later, but Mata's effort cracked the bar to miss the target.

Martial and Van de Beek both went close minutes before the break, but each of them could not find the back of the net.
