East Ham fell to a 1-0 defeat at Manchester United on Sunday.
A frantic Hammers finish was not enough to defeat Marcus Rashford’s first-half header at Old Trafford, sending the Hammers down to 13th in the Premier League.
Here’s how David Moyes’ side fared at Old Trafford…
Lukasz Fabianski – 6
He appeared to injure himself making a clearance which should not have been necessary had the flag been raised more quickly. Replaced at halftime.
Thilo Kehrer – 5
Had looked impressive on the return at right-back but beaten too easily by Rashford for the opener as the whole striker had the run on him. Reserved when spun and passed by the same player.
Kurt Zouma – 7
A vital touch took the ball away from Ronaldo’s head. Monstrous aerial presence, equalizer denied by a sensational save from David De Gea.
Craig Dawson – 6
A loose pass gave Rashford an early chance and looked a little rusty on the return.
Aaron Creswell – 6
Eclipsed by the impressive Diogo Dalot in a full-back battle on his flank.
Declan Rice – 7
Pass but defensive screen still as sharp. So close to a sensational equalizer but thwarted by De Gea’s brilliance.
Tomas Soucek – 6
Made a brilliant block on Rashford amid several big interventions early on but faded. Reserve.
Jarrod Bowen – 6
Fit to start after missing Thursday’s encounter with Silkeborg with an ankle injury, but didn’t quite offer his usual direct threat. Unlucky that Maguire’s touch deflected a late chance for the leveler.
Flynn Downes – 5
Rolling out as No10 just didn’t work out. Doesn’t seem to find the spaces from which more natural playmakers hurt teams.
Said Benrahma – 7
Easily West Ham’s keenest threat in the first half, showcasing several fine skills.
Gianluca Scamacca – 4
A really mediocre afternoon. Devoid of service but needs to do more to get involved. Seems hurt by the absence of Lucas Paqueta. Reserve.
Alphonse Areola (Fabianski 46′) – 6
A rare chance in the League and can get more if Fabianski’s injury proves something serious.
Michel Antonio (Scamacca 57′) – 6
Positive impact after introduction and getting into a nice fight with Martinez.
Pablo Fornals (Downes 77′) – N/A
Unused: Ogbonna, Coufal, Johnson, Emerson, Coventry, Lanzini
