English Premier League
Report: West Ham United 3-1 Manchester United
Date: 29 September 2018
Venue: Olympic Stadium
Manchester United's disastrous start to the season continued after they suffered an embarrassing 3-1 defeat to West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.
The visitors got off to a poor star as Pablo Zabaleta broke free down the right flank before picking out Felipe Anderson, who scored with a lovely flick.
United took a while to get going but they went close to leveling matters when Romelu Lukaku rattled the upright with a header at the near post on 22 minutes.
That proved to be the only clear cut chance for the Red Devils as they struggled to carve out any openings in the final third for the likes of Anthony Martial and Lukaku.
However, West Ham managed to double their lead just before the halftime break when Andriy Yarmolenko 's shot deflected off Victor Lindelof and wrong-footed David de Gea.
It was more of the same in the second half for the visitors, which prompted a surprising change as Lindelof made way for Marcus Rashford in the 58th minute.
The visitors went agonisingly close to pulling a goal back in the 63rd minute through Marouane Fellaini, whose downward header was brilliantly kept out by West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.
Mourinho made his final two changes with 20 minutes remaining as Fred and Juan Mata replaced Paul Pogba and Martial.
United did pull a goal back in the 71st minute as Rashford showed great determination to get ahead of his marker and turn home Luke Shaw's cross at the near post.
The joy was short-lived as the home side restored their two-goal lead two minutes later as Mark Noble played in Marko Arnautovic, who calmly slotted past De Gea.
United did go in search of more goals in the closing stages, but the Hammers hung on for a famous victory.
