West Ham hosted Manchester United in the Premier League fifth round at the London Stadium. Jesse Lingard scored an amazing late goal, and David de Gea saved a penalty at halftime as Manchester United defeated West Ham United 2-1 in a dramatic Premier League match on Sunday after our accurate football prediction.
It took half an hour for the hosts to score an opener with Said Benrahma finding the back of the net. West Ham went ahead in the middle of the hour with a deflected shot from Said Benrahma, but the visitors responded quickly, leading a cross from Cristiano Ronaldo to Lukasz Fabianski and going to touch the ball into the net.
Moments later the parity was restored with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring in his third game in a row. The England international was picked out in the box and dipped past Kurt Zouma before unleashing a stunning shot into the top corner ending the Hammers’ domestic unbeaten streak with two wins and two draws in their opening four games.
David Moyes decided to bring Mark Noble in specifically to take a penalty in the dying moments, after Luke Shaw’s handball in the box, watching David de Gea saving his spot-kick. In the 89th minute substitute, Lingard fired a shot into the top corner against his former club, but West Ham was handed a penalty for a handball by defender Luke Shaw a few minutes later. Mark Noble was the first to reach a corner kick, but his header was blocked by the keeper.
The Red Devils now keep the pace with Liverpool at the top of the table with 13 points from five matches, whilst West Ham remains on eight points after suffering their first loss of the season. De Gea took the penalty for the first time since April 2016, after facing 40 past shots in the game, which he lost to Villarreal in the previous Europa League 11 in the previous season.
