GOAL FLASH! West Ham United 1-0 Manchester United

(44′ mins): Declan Rice provided a timely intervention, thwarting Marcus Rashford’s route to goal, while tame efforts from Nemanja Matic and Andriy Yarmolenko were unlikely to trouble Lukasz Fabianski and David de Gea as the game struggled to find its feet.

Mark Noble’s deflected volley offered de Gea more of a challenge – the Spanish stopper sprawling to his left to gather comfortably. But when a moment of quality finally arrived, it brought the house down. Noble and Felipe  Anderson teed up Yarmolenko – the Ukrainian skipping onto his left foot before firing low, beyond de Gea two minutes before the break #WHUvMUN (1-0)
