Earlier on Saturday, Manchester United also came from behind to beat their hosts West Ham 3-1.

It was a bounce back for the Ole Gunner Solskjaer side following their midweek defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

The Red Devils went behind on 38 minutes after Tomas Soucek headed in from a corner.

But goals from Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and substitute Marcus Rashford turned things around for the visitors.

With the win, United climbed to fourth on the table while Hammers are seventh.
