Half-time at the Chigwell Construction Stadium…

West Ham United 1-3 Manchester United

It’s easy to see why Manchester United are unbeaten in all five FAWSL outings to date following an impressive opening period at Victoria Road.

Alessia Russo and Tobin Heath fired United into a deserved two-goal advantage. And the margin could have been far greater before Emily Van Egmond headed West Ham back in it shortly before the interval.

However, United ruthlessly restored their two-goal advanatge when Russo headed home her second of the afternoon.

West Ham have been spirited, but United’s fluent attacking football has cut them to ribbons at times.
