There was late drama at the London Stadium as Manchester United secured victory over West Ham United, with David de Gea saving a late penalty.
Result: West Ham United 1-2 Manchester United
Date: 19 September 2021
Venue: London Stadium
Scott McTominay was back in the side as Jadon Sancho dropped to the bench while the Hammers were without star striker Michail Antonio due to a one-game suspension.
After a quiet start to the half, the game sprung into life on 23 minutes when Jarrod Bowen forced a save out of David de Gea after the United defence lost concentration, before Bruno Fernandes hit the upright minutes later at the other.
However, it was the Hammers who got the breakthrough on 30 minutes when Saïd Benrahma's shot from the edge of the box took a big deflection off Raphael Varane and sailed past a flat-footed De Gea.
The joy was short-lived though as the visitors were back on level Ronaldo got on the end of Fernandes's cross and saw his strike saved, but he reacted quickest to slot home the rebound.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men should have taken the lead when Ronaldo was slipped through on goal, but Hammers shot-stopper Lukasz Fabianksi rushed off his line to deny the Portuguese.
With the score locked at 1-1, Solskjaer opted for a double change for the final 20 minutes as Sancho and Jesse Lingard replaced Mason Greenwood and Paul Pogba.
The decision paid off for the Red Devils manager as Lingard went from hero to villain after sending a superb strike into the top corner to secure three points for United.
There was late drama after West Ham were awarded a penalty for a penalty for a handball on Luke Shaw, but De Gea proved to be the hero after saving substitute Mark Noble's penalty to hand United three points.
