Marcus Rashford’s 100th goal for his club earned Manchester United the match as they beat West Ham 1-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday.
After struggling to create chances for much of the first-half, Rashford broke the deadlock with a perfectly directed header from Christian Eriksen’s cross in the 38th minute.
David Moyes had never won at Old Trafford as an opposition manager in the Premier League, a run of 15 winless matches, prior to Sunday’s encounter, but his West Ham side more than held their own in the first half in the Manchester rain.
The visitors piled on the pressure as the match wore on, with David de Gea twice called into action to deny West Ham substitute Michail Antonio, producing superb stops on both occasions.
Cristiano Ronaldo started for United for the first time in the Premier League after he refused to come on as a subsitute against Tottenham and left the match early.
Another sensational save from De Gea to deny Declan Rice right at the end of the match preserved United’s victory which takes them above Chelsea into fifth in the standings, one point behind fourth-placed Newcastle.
