Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team had to dig deep to take the three points in East London
There was a dramatic final in the Premier League clash as United held on to earn three key points.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side fell behind Said Benrahma’s shot after 30 minutes, but equalized five minutes later via Cristiano Ronaldo.
Then, with seconds of regular playing time left, Jesse Lingard, whose career was revived last season by a loan spell at West Ham, scored a stunning goal.
The drama was not over, however, when referee Martin Atkinson consulted the VAR monitor well into stoppage time to award a penalty to West Ham after Luke Shaw’s handball.

But there was still late drama when David de Gea saved Mark Noble’s stoppage time
The Hammers brought in their penalty taker Mark Noble, but his kick was saved by David de Gea, giving the visitors all three points.
That late disappointment seemed to confuse some of the home support with Pogba, a target of their frustration as he left the field.
