Erik ten Haag’s side are winless in their last three matches in the Premier League and in their last four matches across all competitions. The Red Devils have lost three out of four matches. In total, the Premier League title holders have been goalless for six hours and 21 minutes.

In the first half an hour on this day, Ten Haag’s students could not take any shot at goal. Although West Ham played relatively organized football, they were also unable to mount a significant attack.

United took the first shot at West Ham’s goal in the 33rd minute. However, Anthony’s shot from an awkward angle went wide of the goalkeeper’s body. Three minutes later United had their best chance of the first half. But Alejandro Garnacho’s shot in one-on-one was blocked by goalkeeper Alfonso Areola.

In the 40th minute, United’s young midfielder Kobi Mainu’s low shot was within reach, but Areola fumbled to catch it. But there was no danger.

The Hammers got a great chance in the 56th minute of the second half. Bowen took a glancing header from a flying corner, but United keeper Andre Onana somehow managed to one-hand the ball over the crossbar.

However, West Ham got a goal shortly after that. The Hammers took the match by scoring two goals in a span of 6 minutes.

In the 72nd minute, Bowen took advantage of Onana’s mistake and put the team ahead. Lucas Paqueta’s lofted through ball into the box was controlled by Bowen’s first touch, but the second touch was a bit too strong. However, even though the ball was straight, Onanar could not catch it. The English forward sent the ball running from his hand into the net.

This is the English forward’s 11th goal this season.

United’s defense is also responsible for the second goal. The Hammers attack by taking the ball away from them in midfield. When Kudus received Paqueta’s pass, there were two United defenders in front of him, but no one intercepted him. The Ghanaian midfielder took the time to send the ball into the net with a Konakuni shot at the far post.

With this loss, United has dropped to number 8 with 28 points in 18 matches and 9 wins and 1 draw. And in this great victory, West Ham has moved up two steps to number 6 with 30 points.
