  • 94'

    FULL-TIME: And that's the match! Manchester United looked sluggish throughout most of the match, but don't take anything away from a great second-half performance by West Ham! Final score in London: West Ham United 2-0 Manchester United!

  • 90'

    There will be a minimum of 4 minutes added time, although the United fans don't seem confident of a comeback.

  • 89'

    Substitution for West Ham: Snodgrass comes on for Yarmolenko in a tactical switch. The goal-scorer gets a standing ovation.

  • 87'

    James races past Diop into the West Ham area and fires a shot towards goal which may have looked in for a moment, but hits the side-netting. It's good to see the youngster putting in the effort, despite the scoreline.

  • 84'

    GOAL! Cresswell doubles the lead for West Ham with a superb free-kick! The left-back bends it over the wall and into the top corner! De Gea did get a hand to it, but the free-kick was struck too well. West Ham United 2-0 Manchester United!

  • 83'

    Yellow card. Young is booked after bringing Noble down to the ground illegally.

  • 83'

    Yellow card. Young is booked after bringing Noble down to the ground illegally.

  • 81'

    Substitution for Manchester United: Gomes comes on for Mata in a tactical switch.

  • 78'

    Man United still in search for an equaliser. James is almost put through on goal but he can't quite get there ahead of Fabianski. Lingard is there on the follow-up and wins a corner, but it comes to nothing in the end.

  • 77'

    It's close! Cresswell shoots from the free-kick with the ball flying about a yard over the crossbar! Decent hit.

  • 76'

    West Ham win a free-kick in a dangerous position. Can they make the most of it?

  • 75'

    Yellow card! Noble lunges into Wan-Bissaka dangerously after losing control of the ball. A VAR check was required to make sure it wasn't a red card offence, which confirmed that it wasn't. Yellow card only.

  • 71'

    A substitution for Manchester United now: Fred comes on for Matic, although I'm not sure how much confidence that'll give the away fans at the moment.

  • 70'

    Substitution for West Ham United: Wilshere comes on for Anderson in a tactical switch.

  • 66'

    Maguire has to score that! A corner is played into the area which Lindelof heads down towards Maguire. The centre-back has an easy chance to score, but he smashes the ball into Fabianski's legs!

  • 62'

    Chance! Anderson plays a perfect one-two with Yarmolenko before firing the ball towards De Gea's near-post - but the keeper is able to save well with his legs!

  • 61'

    Substitution for Manchester United: Lingard comes on for the injured Rashford, who was hurt in a previous challenge.

  • 57'

    Pereira plays the ball to Mata who finds McTominay in the six-yard box, although he can't properly control the powerful pass, resulting in the Scot producing a weak efffort which Fabianski holds.

  • 55'

    United go forward again. Mata finds Rashford with a beautiful pass, but the United striker turns away from goal to look for teammates running into the centre. He can't find any and Fredericks is able to make the challenge.

  • 51'

    James sends a great ball into the six-yard box which Fabianski is able to collect. Pereira entered the scene a little too late to cause any trouble. The second half has been better from United.

  • 49'

    It's a miss! Pereira drives down the right and plays a great ball across the face of goal which Mata can't convert at the back post! The Spaniard was wide open, although he really had to stretch to get to the ball. Still a huge chance missed.

  • 48'

    Better from United. Rashford cuts in from the right and bombards his way through a series of challenges, with James almost getting a shot on goal before he's crowded out by West Ham defenders.

  • 46'

    We're off for the second half! No changes at half-time for either side.

  • 45'

    And that's the half! West Ham have a deserved lead following Yarmolenko's recent goal. United have looked sluggish for the whole afternoon. The score at half-time: West Ham United 1-0 Manchester United!

  • 44'

    GOAL! Yarmolenko gives West Ham the lead! Anderson plays a lovely dinked ball into the United area which Yarmolenko controls and fires into the bottom left corner with a left-footed strike!

  • 41'

    Rashford continues to act anonymously so far in this match, which isn't helpful for James who is putting in a lot of effort down the wings. West Ham are able to drive forward with Yarmolenko having space to shoot, but Young is positioned well to intervene

  • 38'

    Haller finds space to shoot for West Ham, but he's closed down by a number of United defenders who block the shot. The ball is cleared, but West Ham retain possession and work the ball upfield again.

  • 36'

    De Gea saves! Fornals finds Noble on the edge of the area with a free-kick. The midfielder volleys a sweet strike through multiple bodies which flies straight into the arms of De Gea in goals!

  • 34'

    Even in the late stages of this first half, the game has struggled to get going. Rashford isn't looking himself for United, while the rest of the away side are looking rather sluggish.

  • 30'

    We've been impressed with West Ham's play so far in the studio. They're playing with some very nice short passes between the trio of Anderson, Haller and Yarmolenko, with Noble holding when they need extra support.

  • 26'

    Diop is lucky to get away without a yellow card after taking James down James cynically. Young then delivers a brilliant free-kick into the area which ends up going out for a goal-kick as the United attack halted their runs into the box.

  • 21'

    Chance at the other end! Rashford is played through down the left-wing and has a lot of space to run into! He's however closed down by the defence and can't make his way into the danger zone.

  • 20'

    Shot! Yarmolenko goes for goal from outside the area after some good play from Haller, with the effort going straight into the arms of De Gea!

  • 18'

    James goes on a great run for United and wins a corner, which Ogbonna clears at the back post. West Ham are doing very well to keep United out wide in this match.

  • 14'

    Yellow card! Ogbonna is brandished an early booking for committing a cynical foul on Pereira. The United winger knocked the ball into space and Ogbonna took him out rather than letting him get to the ball.

  • 11'

    West Ham have started the more patient side in possession in these early stages, while United look slightly hurried on the ball; immediately looking for the final pass, whether it's on or not.

  • 8'

    Fornals wins a free-kick after going in behind Matic. It's quickly taken but Young's pass to James results in an offside. Wan-Bissaka then gets caught out as he looks to move down the right. It's been a messy start to the match.

  • 6'

    West Ham drive forward although Lindelof is there to the rescue as Wan-Bissaka gets caught out of possession. West Ham win a corner, which Maguire clears to safety.

  • 5'

    Matic loses possession to Haller in the United half and the home-side go on the break as Yarmolenko attempts a cross-field pass, but overhits it. Questionable play from from Matic early on who held on to the ball for too long there.

  • 3'

    Maguire spread a great pass out left to James, who attempts a reverse ball to Mata which is cut out by Ogbonna. James has had a lively start to the match putting some pressure on the West Ham defence.
