Rashford’s header gave United victory over West Ham

Manchester-England: Marcus Rashford’s 100th goal for Manchester United in all competitions, which he scored in the first half, was enough for his team to win 1-0 in West Ham United’s home in the English Premier League on Sunday. After a slow start to the game, United passed in the 38th minute in advantage when Rashford hit the net to finish Christian Eriksen’s superb pass and lead the hosts in benefit. Veteran striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who has only started for the third time in championship in this season, he missed a golden opportunity to double United’s lead early in the second half and pulled out the door from a good position, before West Ham picked up the pace. The visitors increased the pressure throughout the match and David de Gea intervened twice to deny the score to West Ham replacement Michael Antonio. De Gea gave a remarkable performance in both occasions in rejecting the ball. (Reuters) De Gea once again made a superb save on Declan Rice’s last breath to preserve United’s win that prompted him to overtake Chelsea for fifth place in standings, one point behind Newcastle United, fourth in classification. West Ham remained 13th.
