Goals from Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford complete a superb comeback which sees United go within two points of top spot.

West Ham came out of the blocks with authority and had most of the early chances. They had the ball in the back of the net when Jarrod Bowen was put through on goal and slid it past Dean Henderson, however the flag came to United’s rescue.

West Ham did take the lead after 38 minutes as a corner was put towards the front post which was flicked on by Declan Rice into the path of Tomáš Souček who had a tap in at the back post.

The visitors would’ve felt fortunate to go in only one nil down at half time as just before the break, Sebastien Haller was played through on goal but couldn’t apply the finishing touch.

The scene changed dramatically after halftime as Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford injected some much needed impetus into Manchester United’s play.

Paul Pogba levelled the scores after 65 minutes with a well-placed effort 30 yards from goal which was setup by Fernandes.

Three minutes later it was Mason Greenwood who gave United the lead after the ball was fed into him from the right hand side by Alex Telles and the number 11 took a touch and hit a precise shot on the turn past Lukasz Fabianski.

The away side finished the job ten minutes from time when substitute Juan Mata played Rashford in behind who lifted the ball over the West Ham keeper to seal an unlikely comeback and a ninth consecutive Premier League win on the road.
