Full Time: West Ham 1 - 2 Manchester United.

A crazy climax to the game ends with United taking all three points back to Manchester.

Ronaldo equalised in the first half after Benrahma opened the scoring.

As the second half progressed, it looked like the game would be a draw – until substitute Lingard scored an emphatic goal in the 89th minute.

However, West Ham were awarded a penalty in the final minute of stoppage time.

Mark Noble came on to take the penalty but David de Gea saved well to deny the Hammers legend.

Unreal scenes!

Manchester United: Team News

Edinson Cavani is a doubt after failing to make the flight in midweek with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expecting the Uruguayan to be out for around a week and Scott McTominay is another who has been sidelined.

Dean Henderson and Phil Jones played for the Under-23s against Arsenal last Friday, banking their first competitive minutes of the campaign. Marcus Rashford, Amad and Alex Tells are still likely to be out.

Mason Greenwood can earn a recall after being an unused substitute in Bern, and he scored a cracker in this fixture last term, in addition to starting the season in fine form
