West Ham 1-2 Man United LIVE! Noble miss - Premier League result, match stream and latest updates today

West Ham vs Manchester United - LIVE!

Two of the Premier League’s early-season form teams go head-to-head at the London Stadium this afternoon as West Ham host Man United.

The Hammers have continued their momentum from last season with an unbeaten start to the campaign and are riding high after a superb victory away from home to Dinamo Zagreb on their Europa League bow on Thursday night.

Man United, meanwhile, came into this weekend top of the Premier League and though Liverpool’s victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday has sent them to the head of the table, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side know victory will take them level on points with their rivals.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to continue his superb start to his second spell at Old Trafford, having scored three times in two appearances so far, while West Ham will be without their own star centre-forward, with Michail Antonio suspended following his red card against Southampton last weekend.

“Do I regret it? Not at all because Mark Noble is one of the best penalty kick takers we’ve got,” said Moyes.

“We had time to think about it, time to make that choice. [It was] my choice, my decision. That is what happens in management, you have to make big decisions. Sometimes they go and sometimes they don’t. Maybe the job is for some people and not for others, that is why you have to take the decisions.

“We had a really good penalty kick taker sitting on the bench, I think I would have been more disappointed in myself if I hadn’t made the decision.

“Because of his record I thought he was the one who would be most suited to taking it.”

Solskjaer hails Lingard resilience...

16:56 , Malik Ouzia

“So happy for Jesse, he had a tough evening on Tuesday, he knuckled down, he’s a positive lad, so happy for him. A good turn by Jesse, good finish.”

Here is David Moyes...

16:41 , Malik Ouzia

“We got a penalty kick and I have one of the best penalty takers in the Premier Leage and Europe. I think if I hadn’t made the decision I’d have been more annoyed with myself.

“I asked him and he said I’m ready, he has a great record, why would we not? We’ve missed a few recently so I thought I’d take the opportunity to bring Mark on.”

An impressive Premier League debut for Kurt Zouma despite the result.

In fairness, it was a superb save from De Gea...

I, for one, cannot wait to hear what David Moyes has got to say about the decision to send Mark Noble on for that spot-kick.

Jesse Lingard, speaking to Sky Sports...

16:20 , Malik Ouzia

“I got a brilliant reception. I had a good time here but I have to move on with Man Utd and do my best with Man Utd.”

David de Gea has been speaking to Sky Sports...

16:14 , Malik Ouzia

“It was the last minute, I made the save. A massive three points for us. Going through my head was ‘save the ball’.

“It was a really tough game, both teams had good chances, again a great goal from Jesse.

“It is a massive three points. In the dressing room we said the three points were the most important thing.”

Here’s the goal that, in the end, proved the winner...

16:05 , Malik Ouzia

16:01 , Malik Ouzia

A simply remarkable end to the game. We’ll have all the reaction as we get it - and try to make sense of a frantic finale.

Justice for Ronaldo and United

15:58 , Daniel Gallan

Full time: West Ham 1-2 Man United

In all that chaos we didn’t pick up that Ronaldo was denied a penalty when Zouma quite clearly had upended him in the box.

Then West Ham go up the field and Shaw’s handball gives the home side a chance to secure a draw but substitute Noble, who hadn’t kicked a ball all match, was denied from the spot by the diving De Gea.

This in a game where Lingard’s goal proved decisive as his drive from the left sunk the team he played so well for last season while on loan.

Cracking game of football with so many twists.

Keep an eye out for Jack’s report and player ratings.

De Gea saves!!!

15:55 , Daniel Gallan

93mins: De Gea has saved it! Noble comes on and his first kick of the game is a saved penalty. What was Moyes and the West Ham coaching staff thinking allowing a player to come in from the cold to take the crucial penalty.

That’s full time and Man United have won it!

Penalty for West Ham!

15:53 , Daniel Gallan

93mins: In the final minute of added time West Ham have been awarded a penalty. The ball is crossed in and hits Shaw’s outstretched arm. It’s harsh but according to the letter of the law it is a penalty.

Noble comes on for Bowen. Noble is on to take the penalty!

GOAL! Lingard stunner silences crowd

15:50 , Daniel Gallan

90mins: Written in the stars! Of course it’s him. He cost United with a terrible back pass midweek but he’s come back to the London Stadium and broken West Ham hearts with a beauty.

Lingard is outside the box on the left when he receives the ball and cuts infield before unleashing a whipping curler that hits the top corner before Fabianski can contemplate what to do.

It’s a beauty of a goal dripping with narrative. Lingard declines a celebration until he is encouraged to do so by his teammates. He affords himself a smile as the West Ham fans hold their heads in their hands.

Changes for both

15:47 , Daniel Gallan

88mins: Lanzini is on for the hooked goal scorer Benrahma. Man United rotate defensive midfielders as Matic comes on for Fred.

Ronaldo down again

15:45 , Daniel Gallan

85mins: CR7 goes down in the box again, flapping his arms like one of those inflatable figures used to sell second hand cars (know the ones?) Anyway, it’s not a penalty as Lingard’s dinked cross is collected by Fabianski. Credit to Zouma who has mostly kept Ronaldo quiet.

Fornals cracks one wide

15:41 , Daniel Gallan

81mins: Maguire deals with the corner with a headed clearance but it’s returned with interest by Fornals who strikes it clean on the volley. But it’s wide of the right upright.

Fornals cracks onewide

15:41 , Daniel Gallan

81mins: Maguire deals with the corner with a headed clearance but it’s returned with interest by Fornals who strikes it clean on the volley. But it’s wide of the right upright.

10 to go, who wants it?

15:40 , Daniel Gallan

80mins: Can something meander and hurtle to a conclusion at the same time? Because this one is. Strange energy in this game where both teams look terrified of making a mistake.

Varane has just done that with a backpass that’s gone straight out for a corner.

Ronaldo goes down but no penalty

15:37 , Daniel Gallan

78mins: Coufal’s knee definitely makes contact with Ronaldo, but the United striker was searching for that and he goes down a little easy. No penalty and the West Ham fans mock the Portuguese striker by making diving gestures. They might have a point.

Jack’s loving Rice’s work

15:36 , Daniel Gallan

“West Ham are going for this and the fans are right behind it. Fantastic atmosphere after that run from Rice, superb performance so far.”

Fernandes tame shot from distance

15:35 , Daniel Gallan

75mins: Fernandes hits a hopeful shot following a break from Lingard but it’s a tame daisy cutter.

Meanwhile Rice is running around like a hurricane. He’s nipped the ball off Ronaldo twice in a minute deep in Man United territory but the crosses that followed don’t cause a stir.

It’s bubbling now. Something’s got to give and the home side look the more likely to break this deadlock.

West Ham get going again

15:32 , Daniel Gallan

72mins: Even Ronaldo is back defending now and he does so acrobatically. West Ham are hammering their guests. Shots pouring in, crossing being pinged from both sides - though this right channel is proving productive.

Man United need to get back to it and they’ve made some changes. Jesse Lingard and Jadon Sancho replace Mason Greenwood and Paul Pogba.

Penalty appeal

15:30 , Daniel Gallan

69mins: West Ham appeal for a penalty and the whistle sounds! But it’s against the Hammers as the foul is against Soucek, which is an interesting interpretation. Not a penalty, but also not a foul by Soucek. Strange one that.

First switch of the match

15:28 , Daniel Gallan

68mins: Vlasic comes off after struggling to get a kick in. The Ukrainian Yarmolenko comes on hoping to add a different angle of attack.

West Ham have a freekick after Pogba upends Zouma in midfield. It’s a thunderous collision but Pogba protests his innocence in animated fashion.

Jack sensing change is needed for West Ham

15:25 , Daniel Gallan

“West Ham are standing up to Manchester United here and want to prove their worth at this level, though while they remain strong at the back their play on the break is fading a little. Yarmolenko is being readied to come on as Moyes looks for more of a presence up top.”

McTominay catches one in the face

15:23 , Daniel Gallan

62mins: West Ham do break now with intent and craft and it moves down the left after some neat interplay in the middle. Benrahma unfurls a vicious shot that looked destined for the target but catches McTominay square in the face from close range. It poleaxes the big Scot who needs some treatment. He gets it and we get a quick break in play.

Neither side finding a groove

15:20 , Daniel Gallan

60mins: With half an hour to go both teams are likely due a little shake up. Man United are struggling with that final pass, as evidenced by Fernandes’ overhit ball through to Greenwood. West Ham can’t string an attack together.

Fernandes perhaps senses this and takes a shot from a looong way out. Bobbles for a corner. The ninth for the visitors but Shaw’s looping in-swinger evades everyone.

Fornals flicks and Pogba lets fly

15:12 , Daniel Gallan

52mins: Fornals attempts a cute flick at the near post but it’s nowhere near the target. Later Pogba takes aim from distance and though it’s in range he leans back and balloons it over the bar.

West Ham sloppy after the break

15:10 , Daniel Gallan

50mins: It’s been a messy start to the second half from the home side. Several mistakes have handed possession straight back to Man United and one almost cost them dearly.

Perhaps a sign of fatigue after their Thursday night trip to Croatia?

They’ll need to sharpen up here quick.

Fabianski keeps his team level

15:07 , Daniel Gallan

47mins: Fabianski has pulled off a really good stop. A mistake from West Ham gives Man United an opening and Ronaldo is through on goal with only the ‘keeper to beat.

But Fabianski rushes out and even though he can’t prevent the shot he gets close enough to take the sting out of it as it trickles away for a corner.

Huge chance that you’d expect Ronaldo to bury. Massive moment in this game.

Half time: West Ham 1-1 Man United

14:50 , Daniel Gallan

West Ham held the lead for four minutes after Benrahma’s deflected shot ricocheted into the net with De Gea powerless to do anything about it.

But as has so often been the case under Solskjaer, Man United rallied and found an extra gear. Fernandes’ cross from the right was met by the right boot of Ronaldo who held his run perfectly to stay on side and evade his markers.

The visitors have dominated possession but the home side have remained disciplined and sprung a few counterattacks that have threatened the Man United goal.

Absorbing game so far. Catch you in a bit.

Pogba dribbles shot wide

14:47 , Daniel Gallan

45mins: Man United exchange a million passes that don’t do anything - looks nice though - before Pogba fires one from outside the box after rolling his marker. It takes a deflection out for a corner.

Nothing comes of the set piece but they do have another one after Fernandes’ cross is tipped behind by Fabianski.

That corner also leads to nothing.

Both sides come close to second

14:44 , Daniel Gallan

42mins: Ronaldo looks in the mood! He’s unleashed down the right inside the box and even though the angle is tight he fires off a shot that is packed with power and Fabianski does well to get low and hold on.

Up the other end Vlasic is on the end of a sweeping move but his first time shot on the half turn is lifted over the bar. Probably should have done better but he was under pressure.

Jack bemoans lapse from West Ham

14:39 , Daniel Gallan

“West Ham had been so good defensively to that point. Kurt Zouma has been doing a fantastic job in keeping Ronaldo quiet but the back line just switch off a touch as Ronaldo drifted away from Zouma and Ogbonna to meet Fernandes’s cross.”

GOAL! Ronaldo flick restores parity

14:38 , Daniel Gallan

34mins: West Ham’s lead lasts just four minutes as Ronaldo scores yet again - that’s four in three matches since his return to Man United.

It’s a clipped ball from the right from Fernandes and Ronaldo holds his run perfectly - needed a check on VAR to confirm he hadn’t strayed. He stays on side and flicks his right leg at it. Fabianski saves it but Ronaldo mops up the rebound.

Jack impressed with Hammers

14:35 , Daniel Gallan

“West Ham have been playing some quite fantastic football so far this afternoon and finally cap one spell off with a goal. Some fine work down the right from Rice, Fornals and Coufal before Bowen finds Benrahma and the Algerian is helped by a sizeable deflection off Varane. West Ham deserve their lead and the goal comes after a little spell of dominance from the visitors, which makes it well timed.”

GOAL! Benrahma deflected strike

14:34 , Daniel Gallan

30mins: Man United go behind yet again and it’s courtesy of a wicked deflection that flat foots De Gea and bulges the net around the right upright.

Benrahma shoots from outside the box in a central position. He’s aiming for the left corner which is where De Gea is moving but it clips Varane and bobbles into an unguarded section of the goal.

Not quite against the run of play but that’s come as somewhat of a shock.

Fernandes rattles the post

14:29 , Daniel Gallan

28mins: That’s as close as anyone has come. Shaw’s in-swinging corner from the right finds its way to Fernandes around the back post and his low driving hit on the half-volley nails the far post. Oh, and it looks like Fabianski has got a finger tip on that. Cracking save!

A little while after Shaw takes a pot shot from distance which is on target but the Polish ‘keeper smothers it with a gentle dive to his right.

Ronaldo with first shot

14:26 , Daniel Gallan

25mins: A generation ago that was a guaranteed goal. Ronaldo picks the ball up on the right and starts his canter towards goal on the angle. He lines up the fullback and steps over once, twice, three times and digs out a shot that is straight at Fabianksi. First shot on target for the visitors.

De Gea’s feet keep it level

14:23 , Daniel Gallan

22mins: De Gea’s famous feet means it’s still goalless as he keeps out a Bowen dribbler that trickled towards the Man United ‘keeper.

It follows some lovely football that has West Ham break up field and work it from left to right before a swinging cross into the box isn’t dealt with. When it comes to ground Bowen shoots but is falling backwards as he does so. That takes all the sting out of his shot.

Vlasic’s reply however is filled with venom but it’s over the bar.

The home side are growing into this.

West Ham already missing Antonio?

14:19 , Daniel Gallan

Jack seems to think so: “And that is where West Ham will miss Antonio today. The absent forward is hardly the most clinical in the Premier League but he would almost certainly have produced a better effort than that. Brilliant work from Bowen and Benrahma to win the ball so high but a chance wasted.”

Bowen comes close to opening scoring

14:18 , Daniel Gallan

17mins: A mistake at the back from United nearly proved costly again (after Lingard’s midweek gift) and it falls to Bowen who opens his body and aims for the near post from inside the box. but its blocked by Varane.

It’s a gaff from Maguire who tried to dribble himself out of trouble near the left touchline.

West Ham well set

14:13 , Daniel Gallan

13mins: Man United ping the ball around with McTominay and Pogba heavily involved, but they can’t work into a dangerous position. That’s down to West Ham’s well structured midfield who press at the right time and snuff out the danger quickly.

Eventually the ball fizzles out for a goal kick as Shaw can’t latch on to a firm pass from Fernandes. Moyes will be happy with what he’s seeing so far even though the visitors are enjoying 75% possession.

Cagey opening

14:06 , Daniel Gallan

5mins: As you’d expect with two unbeaten teams, they’ve both been circumspect early doors. West Ham look set up to absorb Man United who themselves aren’t overly committing just yet.

Pogba’s taken a knock to his ankle but he should be OK.

Jack keeoing an eye on Jarrod

14:05 , Daniel Gallan

Jack Rosser from the London Stadium: “Jarrod Bowen is the man through the middle early on here for West Ham. He cannot replicate the presence of Michail Antonio in leading the line but his pace, especially on the break, could prove decisive.”

Jimmy Greaves remembered

13:50 , Daniel Gallan

With 10 minutes to go, have a read of Matt Majendie’s moving tribute to Jimmy Greaves. The England, Tottenham, Cheslea and West Ham striker passed away this morning.

Jimmy Greaves obituary: Goalscoring genius for Tottenham, Chelsea and England

Here’s Ole on his team selection

13:36 , Daniel Gallan

David Moyes fancies this

13:24 , Daniel Gallan

In recent history, David Moyes has opted for a back three and two wingbacks when facing so-called ‘bigger’ opposition. Not today. The West Ham manager has selected a back four with a packed midfield as he senses an opportunity to overrun Man United in those key areas between the boxes.

What’s more, he has a certain Declan Rice commanding things. The Hammers captain has been touted as the number one priority for Ole Gunnar Solskjær in the next transfer window.

McFred is back

13:04 , Daniel Gallan

Manchester United have reverted to type - perhaps as a mark of respect - by drafting in two defensive midfielders.

4-2-3-1: De Gea, Maguire, Varane, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Fred, McTominay, Pogba, Fernandes, Greenwood, Ronaldo

Subs: Mata, Lingard, Matic, Van de Beek, Heaton, Sancho, Bailly, Dalot

Bowen with a job to do as West Ham name starting XI

13:01 , Daniel Gallan

Without the suspended Michail Antonio, much will be expected from the Croatian Nikola Bowen up front.

4-5-1: Fabianksi, Cresswell, Zouma, Coufal, Ogbonna, Soucek, Rice, Vlasic, Benrahma, Fornals, Bowen

Subs: Lanzini, Noble, Kral, Areola, Yarmolenko, Dawson, Diop, Fredericks, Masuaka

Two unbeaten sides meet

12:57 , Daniel Gallan

These two Uniteds represent half of the unbeaten teams left in the Premier League. Liverpool and Chelsea are the other two.

History points to a win for the visiting team as Man United have won 30 of their 50 Premier League ties against the Hammers and did the double over them last season.

West Ham did however claim a 2-0 home victory over their guests in 2019 and bagged a 3-1 win in 2018.

Where to watch West Ham vs Manchester United

12:43 , Daniel Gallan

Find yourself a TV with Sky Sports Premier League or Main Event. Coverage starts at 2pm.

Alternatively, Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the website or Sky Go.

Jimmy Greaves to be honoured before kick-off

12:15 , Daniel Gallan

West Ham have confirmed that Jimmy Greaves, who finished his elite level playing career with the Hammers, will be remembered today.

“Everyone at West Ham United has been extremely saddened by the news that legendary striker Jimmy Greaves passed away this morning at the age of 81,” a club statement said.

“A member of England’s 1966 World Cup winning squad, the prolific goalscorer spent two seasons with the Hammers towards the end of his illustrious playing career, scoring 13 goals in 40 appearances, including two on a memorable debut at Manchester City in March 1970.

“There will be a minute’s applause ahead of KO today at London Stadium, while players will also wear black armbands in tribute to Jimmy.”

Hello and welcome

12:02 , Daniel Gallan

Good day to you! We hope you’re looking forward to the day’s action starting with a tantalising clash of two form teams as Manchester United head to East London to take on West Ham.

Of course the occasion today will resonate a little differently after the sad passing of England great Jimmy Greaves who spent two seasons with the Hammers towards the end of his career, scoring 13 goals in 40 appearances.

No doubt David Moyes’ men will want to do the 1966 World Cup winner proud.
