In Prem League play on Sunday at the theatre of dreams, Man United defeated West Ham United 1-0. The two teams had an equal number of shots on target, while Man United had a slight advantage in control (54%-46%). However, the distinction was made by a Marcus Rashford strike in the first half.

Man United has been winning in the league as their unbeaten run continues for five games. As of now it seems like United can really challenge for the league title.

Some Rapid Reaction On Man United’s Recent Form:

The red devils “are back,” according to Pep Guardiola, the rival team’s coach. The successful coach thinks that United might truly threaten to enter the title fight once play resumes after this year’s World Cup campaigne?

After defeating West Ham 1-0 on the weekend at Man United’s home stadium, they moved up to 5th place in the standings, 8 points in behind league-leading Gunners, and only suffered one league loss since August.

West Ham had United fight for the victory, but they played solid defense in the 2nd half to preserve a fifth unblemished record in their past 6 games. The match’s winning play, a one-two involving two of United’s midfield maestros Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes followed by a forceful header by Rashford, deserves to be the deciding factor despite the fact that goals were still not coming easily.

In order to secure the victory, David De Gea had to make three outstanding saves in the final minutes, but Lisandro Martinez also contributed by putting up an outstanding defensive performance in the center of the defenders alongside Maguire, whom Ten Hag decided to start a division match for the 1st time ever since the 4-0 loss at Brentford. Man  United might have been forced to accept a point results in a negative on another day, but championship races are founded on tenacious displays, such as this one.
