Manchester United Defeated by West Ham 3-1
Manchester United met West Ham at London Stadium on September 29th. The game ended with Jose Mourinho’s team suffering their worst league start in 29 years. United currently have 10 points from 7 games, which has happened in 2013-14 under David Moyes as well. However, the inferior goal difference means that this is indeed their worst league start since they gathered 7 points in 1989-90.
Their Saturday match against the Hammers ended with a 3-1 score. Despite having only one win in the preceding 19 top-flight meeting, West Ham was fast in gaining the upper hand this time. The team was already ahead five minutes after the start of the game, with Felipe Anderson’s back-heeled finish from a well-executed Pablo Zabaleta Cross.
The Hammers doubled their advantage just before half-time grace to Andriy Yarmolenko’s shot beyond United’s David de Gea.
United’s Marcus Rashford managed to score on 71 minutes, but the visitors were quick to respond with yet another goal, this time a sharp pass from Marko Arnautovic.
The outcome of the match drew a lot of attention to United, or rather to what is currently happening behind the scenes of Jose Mourinho’s management. News of yet another conflict between Mourinho and £89m record signing Paul Pogba surfaced on Wednesdays, as the manager told Pogba he would not captain his side again.
