Manchester United vs. West Ham score: Red Devils held scoreless in defeat, lose Marcus Rashford to injury

It was a Sunday to forget for the Red Devils

Manchester United suffered a convincing, deserving 2-0 defeat at West Ham on Sunday on Matchday 6 of the Premier League with the Hammers scoring in each half. United was without the services of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial, while also losing Marcus Rashford to injury in the second half. The Red Devils managed just three shots on goal, while West Ham got strikes from Andriy Yarmolenko in the 44th minute and a perfect free-kick goal from Aaron Cresswell six minutes from time to finish United off.

Here's a look at the winning goal:


Here's how West Ham called game:

It's a strong result for West Ham that gets them into the top four for now, while United drops to 2-2-2 on the season. What's more concerning for United is the lack of quality in front of goal, and part of that problem is not replacing Romelu Lukaku, who has been on fire for Inter Milan. 

Since scoring four against Chelsea in the season opener, United has gone six straight games without scoring multiple goals in any match. Come the winter transfer window, expect United to spend some dough to reinforce an attack that desperately needs it.

75' Fantastic double-team defending from West Ham. United not having a moment to breathe.

70' Wilshere on for Anderson as the Hammers look for more possession to play out the rest of this one.

68' United slowly getting into this one more and more. Getting the ball down the right but West Ham doing what it needs to do.

63' GREAT SAVE FROM DE GEA! Yarmolenko plays Anderson through, but the goalkeeper makes a great save at the front post.

Looks more like his groin. He's coming off.

61' Rashford down injured. Looks like hamstring area. Jesse Lingard gets ready to come on.

56' It's good defending from West Ham. United trying to go on the counter and the Hammers are keeping their assignments well.

49' Little bit better from United to start the second half but still just lacking an identity in the final third.

46' The second half has begun!

HT: West Ham 1-0 at the break. Well deserved as well. United with just two shots.
