Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had to dig deep to take the three points in east London
There was a dramatic finale in the Premier League clash as United clung on to earn three important points.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side fell behind to Said Benrahma’s deflected effort after 30 minutes but levelled through Cristiano Ronaldo just five minutes later.
Then, with seconds of normal time remaining, Jesse Lingard, whose career was revived by a loan spell at West Ham last season, scored a stunning goal.
The drama wasn’t over, however, with referee Martin Atkinson consulting the VAR monitor deep into stoppage time to award West Ham a penalty after Luke Shaw’s handball.

But there was still late drama as David de Gea saved Mark Noble’s stoppage time penalty
The Hammers brought on their penalty taker Mark Noble but his kick was saved by David de Gea to win the visitors all three points.
That late disappointment seemed to rile some of the home support with Pogba one target of their frustration as he left the field.
Pogba is out of contract at the end of the season but is in excellent form, contributing seven assists in United’s first six games.
This included four assists in their 5-1 win over Leeds United on the opening weekend of the season, one in the draw at Southampton and two in the 4-1 home win over Newcastle United.

The 28-year-old was modest about his record this season when speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the West Ham game.
He said: ‘This is not important. What is important is the consistency of the team and what we have been doing at the start of the season and we just have to keep this up.
‘Assists come just like this and I think the most important thing is the team performance. That is what helps me to get those assists.’
