Manchester United miserable campaign continued as West Ham piled more pressure on Jose Mourinho with a 3-1 victory over the Red Devils at the London Stadium.
Paul Pogba returned after his midweek spat with Mourinho, but it took just five minutes for things to unravel as record signing Felipe Anderson scored his first West Ham goal with a deft near-post flick.
A miserable first half for the visitors was compounded two minutes before the break when Andriy Yarmolenko’s shot took a wicked deflection off Victor Lindelof to double the Hammers’ lead.
Marcus Rashford gave United a lifeline just after the underwhelming Pogba had been substituted on 70 minutes, but Marko Arnautovic vanished any hopes of a comeback with his fourth goal of the season four minutes later.
West Ham’s first home league victory since the final day of last season lifts them to 12th in the table. Manchester United drop to eighth – eight points off leaders Liverpool having played a game more – after equalling their worst start to a Premier League season.
