Man Utd ratings at West Ham: David De Gea and Jesse Lingard heroes as Solskjaer's Prem title charge continues

JESSE LINGARD returned to haunt West Ham as he came off the bench to fire Manchester United to victory in East London.

Said Benrahma fired the Hammers into the lead but Cristiano Ronaldo got the Red Devils level before the break.


The second half was a non-affair until a dramatic finish when the sub fired the visitors ahead against the side he reignited his career last season with a brilliant strike.

Mark Noble was the fall guy for the hosts when he came off the bench to take a penalty in dying seconds, but the beteran’s effort was stopped by David De Gea.

SunSport’s Gary Stonehouse runs the rule over how United’s stars performed at the London Stadium:

DE GEA – 8

Did well in the first half to keep his team in it by denying Jarrod Bowen.

Little to do second period until the final seconds when he won his team the game by denying Mark Noble from the penalty spot.

BETTING SPECIAL – GET JOSHUA TO WIN IN ROUNDS 1-6 AT 60/1 OR ANYTIME AT 25/1

WAN-BISSAKA – 7

Very proactive in the first half getting forward.

Kept that up in the second and showed no ill-effects from his midweek sending-off.

VARANE – 7

Unlucky for West Ham’s goal in the opening period and was the better out of the centre-backs.

Invited the home side on late on with an overhit backpass that went out for a corner but his partner got him out of jail.

MAGUIRE – 6

The skipper seemed to be differing in the first half and encouraging West Ham to attack.

As always, was a threat from corners but squandered his heading opportunities.

SHAW – 7

A constant threat down the left as he continued his good form.

Was saved by his team-mate at the death after giving away a penalty for handball.

MCTOMINAY – 5

Well off the pace in the first 45 as he struggled to make an impact and was struck right in the mush after the restart.

Did little to affect the game.

FRED – 5

Just like his Scottish midfield partner, offered nothing in the opening period.

Failed to do much in the second.

FERNANDES – 8

Grew into it in the first half after a quiet start as his influence began to grow.

Tried his best to create magic and was United’s star pick, but it just did not happen.

GREENWOOD – 6 

Always a threat with his pace but lacked a cutting edge.

REplaced by Lingard in the second and can have no complaints.

POGBA – 6

After an early knock, he shrugged it off to use the ball well.

Failed to offer is usual threat going forward and was taken off with 18 minutes to go.

RONALDO – 7

Never afraid to try his luck, he went in at half time with his fourth goal in eight days.

Furious he never got a penalty late on when he felt he had been fouled by Coufal.

SUBS

LINGARD (ON 73 MINS) – 8

Will have been desperate to make an impact after his midweek mistake and he did just that.

Received a warm reception from the West Ham fans after his heroics last term on loan but he showed sheer quality with his only chance to influence the game.

The strike was worthy to win any game.

SANCHO (ON 73 MINS) – 6

Did not have any opportunity to change the game.

MATIC (ON 88 MINS) – N/A

Too late to make any impact.
