Commentary
  • 90'

    Full time here at Old Trafford and Man United have made a statement with a dominant 4-0 victory. West Ham failed to pose much of a threat in the game but nothing must be taken away from a brilliant Man United performance.

  • 90'

    GOAL FOR MAN UNITED! A brilliant performance from Pogba deservedly gets a goal after the Frenchman beautifully placed a shot from just outside the box into the bottom corner. Pogba was picked out well with a short pass by Martial before shooting.

  • 89'

    Substitution for Man United as Mkhitaryan is replaced by Lingard.

  • 87'

    GOAL MAN UNITED! Martial makes it 3-0 with a trademark pass into the right bottom corner after he brilliantly took a beautiful Mkhitaryan pass into his stride and stuck the ball away.

  • 86'

    Man United have gone into cruise control and are attacking at will but the final pass, of late, hasn't been able to find it's target.

  • 82'

    Substitution for West Ham as Cresswell comes on to replace Masuaku.

  • 80'

    Substitution for Man United as Rashford is replaced by Martial.

  • 79'

    Shot for West Ham. Arnautovic finds space at the far post after a poor headed clearance from Blind but can only skew his shot way over the bar.

  • 75'

    Substitution for Man United as Fellaini comes on to replace Mata.

  • 71'

    CHANCE FOR MAN UNITED! Pogba does well to put Valencia away on the wing and the latter puts in an inviting cross towards the far post that Blind hits on the half volley but his shot goes just over the bar.

  • 67'

    Yellow card for Ogbonna who is booked for a foul on Mkhitaryan.

  • 66'

    WOODWORK FOR MAN UNITED! Rashford does brilliantly again by receiving the ball on the left flank and driving towards the defence before unleashing a whipped shot that struck the inside of the post.

  • 63'

    CHANCE FOR MAN UNITED! The game has opened up considerably and Lukaku has a great chance to score after being played in by Rashford. The Belgian, however, took a second too long to get his shot away and it's well blocked.

  • 61'

    Double substitution for the Hammers as Fernandes and Noble are replaced by Sakho and Rice.

  • 60'

    Yellow card for Valencia who is booked for a foul on Arnautovic.

  • 59'

    CHANCE FOR WEST HAM! Arnautovic sees his header hit the top of the crossbar and go out for a goal kick. De Gea was worried for a second as it looked as if the ball may just drop into his net.

  • 57'

    Disallowed goal for Man United. Some quick passing from the hosts saw Rashford with the ball in behind the defence which he squares for Mkhitaryan to tap in but the Englishman is penalised for being offside.

  • 52'

    Yellow card for Zabaleta after he brought down Rashford who was looking to run at the Hammers defence.

  • 53'

    GOAL FOR MAN UNITED! It's that man Lukaku again! The resulting free kick is played into the box by Mkhitaryan and Lukaku is left with the job of steering the ball into the right bottom corner with his head which he does brilliantly. 2-0.

  • 50'

    CHANCE FOR MAN UNITED! Pogba does brilliantly to play the ball through for Rashford to run in on goal but the youngster hits his shot wide as he attempted to open up his body and find the far corner.

  • 46'

    We're back underway here at Old Trafford as West Ham start the second half with the ball.

  • 45'

    Half time here at Old Trafford and the hosts go into the break with a deserved 1-0 lead. The Hammers were pegged back in their own half for the majority of the half and will need to do a lot more to get back into the game.

  • 45'

    CHANCE FOR WEST HAM! The Hammers make a push to try and get back into the game before the break and have a stinging shot from Fernandes saved by De Gea. Luckily for the Spaniard, the shot was straight at him.

  • 43'

    The first yellow card of the game goes to Bailly who is booked for a cynical challenge.

  • 42'

    The Hammers have been able to hold the ball a bit more after the goal but are yet to look threatening. Man United are standing off and have reverted to the counter-attack with pace.

  • 37'

    Shot from West Ham. The Hammers look to create a chance of their own but it ends with a wayward volley from Noble after he was set up by a cushioned header from Arnautovic.

  • 33'

    GOAL MAN UNITED! The debutant Lukaku gets his goal after brilliant work from Rashford who ran at the Hammers defence on the break and played a beautiful reversed pass for Lukaku to get in on goal and score via the post. 1-0.

  • 28'

    CHANCE FOR MAN UNITED! Brilliant work from Pogba as he played a beautiful lobbed through ball to Mata who seemed in on goal but decided to attempt a pass across to Lukaku for a tap in but the Hammers defence were able to clear.

  • 23'

    It's been one way traffic thus far as Man United have dominated the ball but are yet to test Hart. The home fans will be happy with their side thus far but will be having flashbacks of the countless home draws from last season as long as it stays 0-0.

  • 19'

    CHANCE FOR MAN UNITED! The hosts have a brilliant chance after Mkhitaryan threaded a beautiful ball through for Mata who shoots from a tight angle but it's saved by Hart. The ball then landed at Lukaku's feet but he couldn't get a shot away.

  • 17'

    Man United continue to pile on the pressure and West Ham are struggling to get out of their own half. The hosts will be hoping the pressure leads to decent chances as they've been limited to efforts from outside the area thus far.

  • 13'

    Shot by Mkhitaryan! The Armenian picked up the ball in the corner of the box after a weak clearance from Masuaku and has time to try and bend his shot towards the far corner but it goes well over the bar.

  • 8'

    Good intent shown from Man United after a bursting run from Lukaku resulted in a corner that was flicked on at the near post by Bailly but the Hammers are able to clear.

  • 5'

    It's a fast-paced start to the game as both sides look to get the ball forward quickly, but neither is able to combine the pace with accuracy resulting in regular turnovers in possession.

  • 1'

    The referee today is Martin Atkinson and he gets us underway here at Old Trafford!

  • 0'
