Full-time: Manchester United 1-1 West Ham United

More frustration for United and Jose Mourinho, whose sending off is sure to dominate the headlines in the coming days. West Ham, to their credit, defended doggedly and took advantage of early free-kick to pinch a point.

Anyway, that's all from our live blogs this weekend. Until next time...


A final change for the Hammers, who take off Payet to waste a few seconds of time. They're almost home.


Time all most up at Old Trafford. Time for a winner?

West Ham almost steal all three points on the break, but De Gea gets his feet in the way of Fletcher's goal-bound effort.


United make another switch. Throwing everything at the West Ham goal from now until the final whistle. But I don't think it's going to happen for them.


This really is incredible! Ibrahimovic latches onto a poor back-pass from James Collins, rounds the keeper and looks certain to score. But a West Ham defender gets back to hack the ball clear.

Now Randolph saves from Ibrahimovic after the Swede meets a pin-point cross from Wayne Rooney. One-way traffic at Old Trafford.


United have the ball in the net but it won't count! The whistle had gone before hand. More frustration for the Reds. Lingard - the scorer - was stood in an offside position after the ball rebounded off the post.

Moments later, Pogba's goal-bound effort is pushed behind by Randolph, who is certainly earning his corn this evening.

Lingard flashes a shot straight down the throat of Randolph and West Ham survive another minor scare.



Well, just as I type that, Rooney gets a half-opening from a first-time pass from Ibrahimovic, but the England captain's effort is easily stopped by Randolph. A decent move that, though.


The game has gone a bit flat over the last ten minutes or so. And the longer we gone without another goal, the more United will start to rue some of the opportunities they spurned in the first half.

United make their first move. Perhaps a surprise that Mata is one of the players to make way.

Meanwhile, West Ham have swapped Sakho for ex-United man Fletcher.


An hour gone at Old Trafford and I fancy it is time for a sub or two. Rooney is still warming up on the touchline.

The ball is played back to Randolph in the West Ham goal and he attempts to clear, but his kick is blocked by Rashford. Unfortunately for United, the ball goes over the bar rather than into the net.

Lingard gives away another cheap freekick in a dangerous position. Payet is over the ball... and he shoots at goal! Tipped over by the United keeper.

West Ham have made a much better start to the second half. Perhaps that break came at the ideal time for them, as they were being pinned back in their own half of the field.


Wayne Rooney - who stands on the cusp of becoming United's all-time top scorer - is among the players warming up at the moment.

Back under way at Old Trafford.


Half-time: Manchester United 1-1 West Ham United

All square at the break and what a thrilling 45 minutes that has been - let's hope for more of the same in the second period.

And again. And again. Lingard this time, through on goal, but his effort is pushed round the post and West Ham. If United don't win this game, Mourinho will go mad, I fancy.


Another chance for United goes begging! On this occasion, a break sees Pogba set up Ibrahimovic but he takes too long to get his shot off and the effort is blocked.

At the other end, a rare West Ham attack ends with the ball striking Marcos Rojo's hand. Deliberate? The ref says no and on we go...


Now, Mata sends over a cross from the other side of the pitch, and Ibrahimovic - who is under pressure - sends the ball wide of the post.

Pogba goes close with a lopping header from a Juan Mata corner. United will be baffled as to how they are not winning this game.

Having said that, I wonder if Mourinho will contemplate a change at the break. Lingard could be the man to make way.

Apparently Mourinho is watching the game from a private room inside the ground, meaning he is out of view of the snappers for the time being.
