Despite the recent tweet from West Ham FC, the boys took the win from Manchester United in a match that was held over the weekend in September at the London Stadium. The tweet that was released referred to the team not playing as great as they would have liked, but that they were proud of their success nevertheless. The tweet also said that the team was proud to have defended for over 90 minutes.
The game was a widely watched one being in the Premier League and many even bet on the match. For those wagering on the Red Devils, theirs would have been a sore loss indeed.
Ole Gunnar told the press that he remained positive despite having only won 2 of their 11 Premier League games. Manchester played well in the first half of the game until Rashford suffered an injury to the groin which sent him off the field. The star player will be undergoing scans to see if he is still able to play the rest of the year through. If not, the team will feel the loss as they have already suffered a long list of injuries. Mason has also been benched in this game as the teen player was suffering from tonsillitis.
This win will make it the team’s second successive win over Manchester United, adding to the list of wins. The two star players to have made this possible included Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell, each one scoring a goal in the first and second half. The matches highlights can be matched up to two minutes and contain nail biting plays from West Ham.
Manchester has had a string of losses in the past few months and tabloid headlines are saying that some feel that Manchester United is further away than ever before. Because of this, Ole Gunner has come under close scrutiny which makes fans and the team nervous. Despite being positive for a bright future, the team will need to win the next match to restore good faith as well as give supporters hope for the future.
West Ham played a good game, but it wasn’t such a great game that Manchester Couldn’t have taken them. It is felt the team has hit a steady decline since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. The match that gained West Ham the win seemed to be predictable and dull, nevertheless, the win did have its moments.
What will happen to Red Devils entering the New Year remains to be seen but one thing is for certain, if the team doesn’t score a win any time soon, it may be too late for them to keep up with the league and many will question where Ole Gunnar is taking the team. The future is proving to be promising for West Ham and supporters are savouring the matched played over the weekend. West Ham is doing well and even though they could push a little harder, this win is great news for the team.
