FT: West Ham 1-3 Man Utd. How do they keep doing it? Once again, they fell behind on the road, but once again they come away with three points! That is nine successive wins on the road, and five in a row this season. United were so, so poor in the first half, but the substitutes made all the difference. Thanks for joining us. Goodnight.
United passing this around and seeing out the most improbable of wins.
Rashford cuts back inside, and keeps possession once more.
Five added minutes here at the end of this.
An utterly remarkable game, as United pass the ball around safe in the knowledge the game is won.
Final change for the Hammers, as Sam Johnson replaces Coufal.
SAVE! Brilliant effort from Cresswell as he wrong-foots Henderson, but the United stopper springs across to make a fine save.
Free-kick to West Ham in a dangerous position...
He probably could do a job...
CLOSE! Benrahma goes for a lofted attempt himself, but it lands on the roof of the net.
Just brilliant from United's substitutes. Mata slides a superb ball through for Rashford, who races through before lofting a cheeky finish over Fabianski. Game over?
- GoalMarcus RashfordManchester United
GGGGGOOOOOAAAALLLLLL!!!! West Ham 1-3 Man Utd. What pass from Mata! And what a finish from Rashford! 3-1!
WIDE! Greenwood ahs come alive in this second half. He again races through the gap, but pokes just wide.
- OffJarrod BowenWest Ham United
- OnManuel LanziniWest Ham United
Double change for West Ham here, with Bowen and Fornals replaced by Saïd Benrahma and Manuel Lanzini.
He would know a good central striker when he sees one...
And what a way to do it...
POST! Brilliant from the United subs as Fernandes superbly threads it through for Rashford, who takes a touch, fires for the bottom corner, but sees his strike come out off the post.
How the comeback started...
Less than three minutes between those goals. United have burst to life.
- GoalMason GreenwoodManchester United
What on earth has happened here? Telles crossed for Greenwood, who took a brilliant first touch, span and hammered into the bottom corner. Madness!
GGGGGGOOOOOOAAALLLLLL!!! West Ham 1-2 Man Utd. My word! The brilliant Greenwood fires United in front!
VAR had a look at whether Henderson's long clearance for Fernandes had gone out of play, but they are happy that the ball stayed in, with Fernandes feeding Pogba, who placed a brilliant strike into the net from 25 yards. Super goal, but not deserved, at all!
- GoalPaul PogbaManchester United
GGGGGGGOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLL!!! West Ham 1-1 Man Utd. He has done nothing all game, but Pogba fires a brilliant leveller into the net! A bolt out of the blue!
Change for United, with Juan Mata on for Martial.
Rashford cuts onto his right foot, but his shot in blocked. Martial's game looks to be done...
Martial is not looking comfortable here, at all. Seems to have a groin problem.
CHANCE! Much, much better from United, Rashford is in space down the left, cuts back inside, pulls it back for McTominay, who hammers into the side netting.
Greenwood turns and shoots in a flash on the edge of the penalty area, but it hits the back of his own man Martial.
BIG CHANCE! Good play from West Ham again, as Haller feeds Vladimir Coufal, who feeds the ball across for Bowen who, on the slide, cannot quite connect properly at the far post.
Fornals looks for Bowen but gets too much on it.
Pogba getting on the ball again, but he again gives it away.
Rashford has come wide left, with Martial through the middle.

KICK OFF! We are back under way, and there is a very predictable double change for United, with Bruno Fernandes on for Van de Beek and Cavani.
A director's nightmare this United defence.
- End of 1st Half
HT: West Ham 1-0 Man Utd. A mystery that this is only 1-0, given how utterly dreadful United have been. They have created next to nothing, and looked a mess at the back.
One added minute at the end of the half.
TACKLE! Wan-Bissaka misses a clearance, and Bowen is away, but the United full bacl shows lightning pace to get back and make the tackle.
SAVE! Finally! A nice move from United, as Telles feeds Martial, who shoots for the top corner, but Fabianski makes a smart save.
What fans had been waiting so long for.
MISS! What a moment to lose your footing! Terrible from United again, Haller races through, rounds Henderson, looks certain to score, but slips as he cuts back inside and United clear!
Another goal conceded from a corner, as Delcan Rice flicks on, and Soucek taps home at the far post, unmarked.
- GoalTomáš SoucekWest Ham United
GGGGOOOOOOAALLLLLL!!!!! West ham 1-0 Man Utd. It had been coming, and it is Tomas Soucek with that first goal in front of fans again!
United need half time, and a major regroup.
POST! Fornals again, as his toe poke, through the legs of Wan-Bissaka, rolls past Henderson, but agonisingly comes back off the post. Great work again from Bowen to create the chance.
Pogba seems to be limping a little here after going up for a header.
CHANCE! What an opportunity for Fornals, but his header, after superb work from Bowen to take on two before whipping a great cross in, is into the side netting. Should have gone across Henderson.
No really efforts at goal from United to date, with the Hammers looking the better side once more.
Dreadful passing from United as they give the ball away.
Everything coming through Pogba for United, with his every touch getting booed.
Super cross from Telles, which Ogbonna can only slice over his own crossbar. United growing into this...
Van de Beek finally involved, but he cannot find the forward pass.
United just going from side to side, creating nothing.
Cannot work out whether it is Cavani or Martial down the middle.
He really is struggling for form.
United are so slow to the ball here. Giving it away far too often, too.
The hosts are well set up here. Maguire has to go long, but Donny van de Beek cannot get on to it.
Haller causing mischief still. He is shoving United players all over the place.
The Hammers are all over United at the moment, who cannot get out of their own half.
NO GOAL! Bowen races clear, fires into the bottom corner, but is flagged, correctly, offside.
Fornals really putting the pressure on from the front. Even Haller is getting involved!
United actually getting on the ball now and settling into the match.
SAVE! Great start from the home side. Jarrod Bowen fires a cross into the middle, it is half blocked, Pablo Fornals latches on to the loose ball, but Henderson is out sharply to block.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! We are up and running with that lovely, natural sound of fans cheering.
So here we go. A small step towards normality with fans present, but what sort of spectacle will they be treated to? This Manchester United are impossible to predict!
Ahead of kick off, catch up with all the latest transfer talk from across Europe, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s successor is reportedly being lined up!
Will Cavani have an impact today? Cavani is averaging a goal or assist every 32 minutes in the Premier League so far this season (3 goals, 1 assist, 128 minutes), having a hand in all three of Man Utd’s goals after coming off the bench in their 3-2 comeback win at Southampton last time out.
In for a busy afternoon?
Moyes gives his thoughts on fans returning...
What a sight!
Two years into this tenure, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains under pressure, but not from within the club…
Since arriving, this is the first league game Fernandes has not started for United. To say Fernandes has been crucial is something of an understatement. Since Fernandes’ Premier League debut for Man Utd, the Red Devils have earned more Premier League points-per-game than any other side (2.09). Man Utd’s 48 points in their 23 league games since his arrival is 17 more than they earned in the same number of games before his debut (31).
A reminder that we have fans back at London Stadium this afternoon! What has it been like so far? Find out here…
HEAD TO HEAD: West Ham have won their last two Premier League home games against Manchester United – they’ve not won three in a row at home against the Red Devils in the top-flight since a run of four between January 1974-December 1977. After a run of 11 wins in 12 Premier League games against West Ham (D1) between 2008-2014, Manchester United have won just three of their last 11 against the Hammers in the competition (D5 L3).
Wouldn't call a tracksuit sharp...
NO FERNANDES OR DE GEA, POGBA STARTS: Some major surprises in the Manchester United starting XI, with both David de Gea and the talismanic Bruno Fernandes not in the starting XI. De Gea was feeling an injury in midweek, so Dean Henderson is in goal, while Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek come in. Marcus Rashford is not fit enough to start, with Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial named in a front three. Bad boy Fred is not in the squad. Just the one change for in-form West Ham and it’s an enforced one, with Sebastien Haller leading the attack in the absence of the injured Michail Antonio.
TEAM NEWS – WEST HAM: Fabianski, Coufal, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Masuaku, Rice, Soucek, Bowen, Fornals, Haller… Subs: Randolph, Diop, Johnson, Noble, Snodgrass, Lanzini, Benrahma. /// MAN UTD: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, McTominay, Pogba, Greenwood, Van de Beek, Martial, Cavani… Subs: Grant, Tuanzebe, Williams, Matic, Mata, Fernandes, Rashford.
The teams are in...
Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Manchester United’s trip to West Ham in the Premier League. The man who had the unenviable task of succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes, will be looking to spoil the party this afternoon, with United looking to further better their club-record run of eight top-flight away wins in a row this evening. Moyes has done an impressive job during his second spell in charge of West Ham and Monday's home win over Aston Villa - their third consecutive victory - lifted them to fifth in the Premier League.
