    FT: MAN UTD 1-0 WEST HAM

    Man Utd secure all three points without being put under any pressure.

    West Ham made it easy for the home side and it was an own goal by Dawson which handed United the lead.

    Moyes changed things once his side conceded and they were much better as a result.

    But it was simply too little too late.

    Solskjaer will be delighted that his side kept a clean sheet and climbed back up to 2nd in the table!

    61. DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION!

    Noble and Johnson make way for Lanzini and Benrahma. Two attacking changes.

    You have to ask; why not go for this game from the get-go? Why change things once you've conceded?
