West Ham 1-3 Man United: Come back kings hit three past the Hammers

Manchester United came back from a goal down to beat West Ham 3-1 at the London Stadium.

The first half was quite disappointing for the visitors as none of the passes they were making were fruitful or dangerous enough to amount to a goal.

For the first goal, the Manchester United defending was non-existent as Rice simply flicked the corner on at the near post, and Tomas Soucek bundled the ball over the line from close range.

The visitors appealed for offside but their appeals were groundless, and the West Ham fans had the goal they were after.

The rest of the half still belonged to the home side, and they had a chance to extend their lead but Sebastian Haller fluffed his chance.

United goals:

Henderson raced off his line to beat Bowen to a ball in behind and launched a long punt down the touchline which released Fernandes into space. 

He got his head up and found the late-arriving Paul Pogba, who curled a sublime effort into the top corner. A finish of the highest order!

It was a smash and grab from the Red Devils and, in an instant, they had the lead at a stunned London Stadium.

The second goal saw Fernandes' flick find Telles out in space on the left and his cross found Mason Greenwood in the West Ham area.

The ball was behind the teenager but he improvised exquisitely, bringing the ball down with one touch before rifling a second past Fabianski.

For the third goal, substitutes combined as Mata's first-time pass sent Marcus Rashford through on goal, and he made no mistake with a beautiful lofted finish over the goalkeeper.

West Ham tried to even get one back to put pressure on Ole's men, but Maguire and co. held the backline.

As things stand:

With this result, United are up to fourth on the table, while West Ham slip to seventh.
