Manchester United will start April second in the Premier League standings after Craig Dawson’s own goal saw high-flying West Ham fall to defeat at Old Trafford.
With the Europa League trip to AC Milan and FA Cup quarter-final at Leicester coming up before the international break, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side kicked off an important week with a solid performance on Sunday.
Mason Greenwood twice struck the post on a night when Dawson’s own goal proved the difference.
GOAL! Manchester United 1-0 West Ham | Dawson own goal | 53 mins
United lead! It’s so simple as the corner comes in from the left, McTominay gets up, but Dawson heads into his own net at the near post!
Half-time | Manchester United 0-0 West Ham
Not a horrid first half, but one that neither side will want to remember in a hurry.
Save by Fabianski!
36 mins: United attack at speed and Greenwood cuts in from the right onto his left foot.
His low shot seems destined for the bottom right-hand corner of the net, but Fabianski makes a stunning stop on the stretch to tip the ball wide!
