Man Utd rally to spoil West Ham fans’ return
Manchester United came from behind for the fifth time in a row this season to beat West Ham United and deny the Hammers fans a perfect return to their stadium.

Three minutes after Pablo Fornals had struck a post, Tomas Soucek poked in Declan Rice’s flick.
The half-time introduction of Bruno Fernandes turned the match, as he passed to Paul Pogba who struck a superb equaliser on 65 minutes.
Three minutes later, Mason Greenwood rifled Man Utd ahead, before another half-time substitute, Marcus Rashford sealed a ninth successive away PL win.
Man Utd rise to fourth on 19 points, while West Ham drop to seventh on 17 points.
