West Ham too strong for Man Utd

Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell scored to help West Ham defeat Manchester United 2-0 in the Premier League on Sunday.

Yarmolenko opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time, sending a low finish past David de Gea following patient build-up play involving Mark Noble and Felipe Anderson.

Cresswell sealed all three points for the Hammers in the second half with a superb free-kick into the top right-hand corner.

The result lifts West Ham above the Red Devils in the table, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side remain three points off the top four.

In another Premier League encounter played concurrently, Crystal Palace played a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Diogo Jota’s stoppage-time goal rescued a point for Wolves after Leander Dendoncker’s own goal had put Palace in front.

Despite the draw, Wolves remain 19th and remain winless after six top-flight matches.
