West Ham scored two goals in six second-half minutes as they secured a 2-0 victory over Manchester United and moved above Erik ten Hag’s side in the Premier League table.

 

In a game that struggled for attacking quality, Lucas Paqueta’s sublime pass unlocked the United defence and found Jarrod Bowen, who broke the deadlock with his 11th league goal of the season .

 

A second quickly followed as Mohammed Kudus pounced on an error from Kobbie Mainoo to wrap up all three points for the Hammers as they moved up to sixth and firmly into the hunt for the European places.

 

Meanwhile, it was another chastening afternoon for United, who dominated possession at the London Stadium but failed to score for a fourth successive match in all competitions.

Ten Hag’s side have now suffered eight league defeats so far this season and sit eighth in the table, six points behind fourth and 11 points behind leaders Arsenal.

 

Manchester United have won just one match out of their last five in the top flight and Erik ten Hag’s side have lost more games than they have won this season across all competitions.

 

As a result West Ham leapfrog them into sixth place in the table as United drop to eighth.

 

Manchester United host unexpected title-challengers Aston Villa on Boxing Day while West Ham travel to Arsenal on Thursday 28 December.
