Thanks for joining our commentary this afternoon. Until next time, goodbye.
Both teams have three days to recover before they play each other again at Old Trafford in the third round of the EFL Cup.
Manchester United continue their impressive start to the Premier League season with a 2-1 victory over West Ham United at London Stadium. The Red Devils were forced to come from behind after Said Benrahma's deflected strike put the Hammers ahead. Cristiano Ronaldo responded with the equaliser to notch his fourth goal in three games since his return. The game appeared to be heading for a draw until former West Ham loanee Jesse Lingard curled home a fantastic strike to haunt David Moyes' men. However, Luke Shaw's handball offered a late chance for the home side to snatch a point from the penalty spot. Mark Noble entered the game from the bench to take the penalty, but was denied by David de Gea, who produced a brilliant save to earn his team the win.
David de Gea
Penalty Save
90' + 5' SAVE! De Gea produces a brilliant stop to surely secure the three points for United. The Spaniard dives well to his left to palm Noble's strike away from danger. A super save.
M. Noble
Penalty Miss
90' + 5' MISS!!!! NOBLE MISSES THE KICK WITH HIS FIRST TOUCH! The West Ham club captain enters the field to take the penalty kick without having touched the ball previously. He hammers his effort on his right foot low and hard towards the bottom-right corner, but De Gea gets across to make the save.
M. Noble
J. Bowen
90' + 4' Noble enters the field for the dying seconds of the game. He surely won't be taking the penalty?
90' + 3' VAR! PENALTY TO WEST HAM! Shaw handles the ball as he blocks Yarmolenko's cross with his arm away from his body. The referee does not give the call on the field, but after being instructed to head over to the monitor he overturns his call. 
90' + 1' Zouma brings down Ronaldo with a lunge in the box, but the referee is not convinced by his shout for a spot-kick.
90' There will be three minutes of added time.
N. Matić
89' Matic plays the ball to Lingard on the edge of the box before the forward does the rest with a sublime finish.
J. Lingard
89' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! LINGARD SCORES A STUNNER!!!! 2-1!!!! United take the lead in the dying stages of the game as the former West Ham loanee finds the top-right corner with a super effort. Matic works the ball into space in the left-inside channel for Lingard. He takes a touch inside and curls his right-footed effort away from Fabianski into the back of the net. Will it be enough for the visitors to take all three points?
M. Lanzini
S. Benrahma
88' Lanzini enters the action for the home side to replace Benrahma.
N. Matić
88' Matic enters the action to replace Fred in the middle of the park.
85' Ronaldo looks for another penalty as he claims that Cresswell pulls his shirt when attacking a Sancho cross, but the referee is not interested.
83' The game is there for both teams in the closing stages of the contest. Both teams are unbeaten in the Premier League to date, and both will be keen to leave the contest with their respective records intact.
81' WIDE! Fornals latches on to a loose ball following a West Ham corner, but he hammers his right-footed strike wide of the left post.
78' Fernandes fires a dangerous low ball in from the right flank towards the run of Ronaldo in the middle, but Zouma intervenes with a great clearance in front of the forward.
77' PENALTY SHOUT! Ronaldo collects on the left flank and tries to square up Coufal. He goes down under pressure from the full-back, but the referee dismisses his claim for a penalty.
75' Lingard works the ball to Fernandes on a brisk United counter. The Portuguese shoots first time from distance, but his effort is tame and straight at Fabianski.
74' Rice wins the ball in the middle of the park and drives his team forward. Unlike his run and goal against Zagreb, United men get back to halt his progress on the edge of the box.
J. Lingard
P. Pogba
73' Lingard receives a warm welcome from the West Ham fans after his impressive spell on loan last season. He replaces Pogba for the visitors.
J. Sancho
M. Greenwood
73' Greenwood is withdrawn for the visitors and is replaced by Sancho in the final third.
72' Fornals makes a break down the left flank, but Varane holds firm and wins the free-kick for United to quell the danger.
71' BLOCK! Yarmolenko plays a delightful backheel into the path of Benrahma, but the midfielder sees his drive from the edge of the box blocked by Maguire.
69' Soucek goes down under pressure from Wan-Bissaka in the United box, but the referee gives the decision the way of the visitors. West Ham are not happy with Martin Atkinson about that one.
A. Yarmolenko
N. Vlašić
68' Vlasic is withdrawn for the home side and is replaced by Yarmolenko.
67' Zouma charges forward from the back and he gets brought down by a lunge from Pogba. The United midfielder is furious with the decision by the referee.
64' The tempo of the game has dropped from the early stages of the second half. Both teams were in European action during the week and may just be experiencing signs of fatigue.
62' Benrahma lines up a blast from distance, but his effort is charged down by McTominay. He takes a blow to the face in the process and requires treatment on the field.
61' Shaw launches two corners into the box from the right flank, but the home side repel the threat with ease.
59' Fernandes tries to thread the ball through to Greenwood on the charge, but the pass has too much pace on it and travels out for a goal-kick.
57' Bowen is played into space down the right flank and he cuts inside to shoot on his left foot, only to see his effort blocked by Varane.
54' West Ham's London Stadium is the 66th different stadium that Cristiano Ronaldo has scored at in matches played in Europe's big five leagues, scoring at more unique venues than any other player since his Man Utd debut in 2003-04, ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic (64).
52' OVER! The game continues to flow from one end to the other. Fernandes offloads to Pogba in space, but the Frenchman lifts his right-footed strike over the bar.
51' CHANCE! Fornals attempts an ambitious backheel towards goal from Bowen's cross from the right flank, but the ball travels wide of the left post. 
51' WIDE! Maguire rises highest from a Shaw corner to head at goal, but he directs his header well wide of the left post.
49' West Ham win a corner on a break from Coufal as McTominay has to put the ball behind. The cross is cleared before Coufal works the ball to Bowen to shoot, but De Gea gets down to make a comfortable save.
48' BLOCK! Ronaldo latches on to a loose ball from the resulting corner and he swivels to fire a left-footed strike at goal, but his effort is blocked by his own man Maguire.
47' CHANCE! Fornals gives the ball straight to Fernandes, who tees up Ronaldo in the box. The forward takes on the strike first time, but his effort is blocked by the legs of Fabianski, who diverts it wide of the right post.
46' We're back under way at London Stadium.  
Ronaldo has been extremely dangerous in the final third and could have added further goals for the Red Devils. West Ham have to find a way to limit his threat in the second half in order to maintain their unbeaten run.
It's all square at the break at London Stadium between West Ham United and Manchester United in their Premier League clash. Said Benrahma put the Hammers ahead when his strike from 20 yards was deflected past David de Gea by Raphael Varane. However, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his fourth goal in three games for United since his return with a close-range finish. The game hangs in the balance at the interval.
45' + 1' United probe as Ronaldo lines up a blast, but his strike clatters into a wall of claret shirts on the edge of the West Ham box.
45' There will be two minutes of added time.
45' Pogba turns his way past Cresswell and lines up a left-footed strike that is deflected wide of the left post by Ogbonna.
42' CHANCE! Vlasic has to score. Cresswell breaks down the left flank and cuts the ball back to the forward in the box. Vlasic shoots first time on his left foot, but can only place his effort over the bar. He had to at least hit the target.
42' SAVE! Greenwood threads a pass through to Ronaldo in the right-inside channel. The forward hammers his effort across goal towards the bottom-left corner, but Fabianski gets down quickly to make a fine save.
40' United are looking dangerous every time they push forward into the final third. The Hammers have to be careful not to concede again before the break.
39' McTominay makes a driving run into the right-inside channel. He cuts the ball back towards Ronaldo, but the low cross just travels behind the forward.
Cristiano Ronaldo
35' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! RONALDO EQUALISES!!!!! 1-1!!!! United are level in the contest as the Portuguese scores on the rebound. Fernandes bends a dangerous cross to the back post that Ronaldo steers towards goal. Fabianski does well to keep out the effort, but the loose ball falls perfectly for the Portuguese to tap home from six yards. Ronaldo now has four goals in three games for the Red Devils since his return.
33' CHALLENGE AND SAVE! Ronaldo is played through on goal by a defence-splitting pass from McTominay. He takes a poor first touch and he allows Zouma to get back in to make a covering challenge. United keep the attack alive as Wan-Bissaka collects on the right flank and hammers a low effort towards the near post, which is turned behind by Fabianski.
32' Fernandes lifts a cross into the box from the right that Shaw nods into the path of Ronaldo. The Portuguese has to stretch, and can only place his effort wide of the target.
J. Bowen
30' Bowen produces a brilliant turn on the edge of the box before picking out Benrahma in space. The midfielder sees his curling strike deflect off Varane and into the back of the net.
S. Benrahma
30' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!! BENRAHMA'S DEFLECTED EFFORT FINDS THE NET!!!!! 1-0 WEST HAM!!!!!! The midfielder is afforded space and time on the edge of the box to line up a strike, which deflects off Varane and finds the net. Bowen makes a good turn on the edge of the box and rolls an offload towards Benrahma in space. He takes a touch before firing at goal, with the knee of Varane taking it away from De Gea into the net.
28' SAVE! Greenwood and Fred combine to tee up Shaw from 25 yards. He drills a low strike that takes a deflection on its way to goal, forcing Fabianski into a sharp stop.
28' OFF THE POST! Fernandes latches on to the corner from Shaw at the back post. He swings his left foot at the ball to connect on the half-volley, only to be denied by the right post. Fabianski appears to get a touch on it on the way. A huge save by the Pole.
26' Fernandes sends a dangerous cross to the near post with Greenwood and Ronaldo both in position to attack the delivery. However, Ogbonna is on hand for the hosts to head behind for a corner.
24' SAVE! Pogba spreads the ball out wide to the left flank for Ronaldo. The Portuguese lines up a strike on his right foot, but he drills his effort straight at Fabianski.
23' West Ham are growing into the contest and are beginning to turn the pressure back on the visitors.
21' SAVE AND OVER! West Ham cut United open with ease with a swift attacking move. Coufal clips a cross into the box that Bowen does well to outmuscle McTominay for in the middle. He stretches to place an effort at goal, but De Gea makes a solid stop with his boot. Soucek pounces on the rebound, only to hammer his effort over the bar.
18' WIDE! Soucek takes possession on the edge of the United box and is encouraged to shoot by the home fans. He takes on the strike, but drags his left-footed effort wide of the target.
17' BLOCK! Benrahma latches on to a mistake from Maguire and cuts the ball back to Bowen to shoot. He fires at goal first time in the box, but Varane throws himself in the way of the strike to deny the forward.
15' United are beginning to exert pressure on the home side, but the West Ham defence are holding firm as Zouma and Coufal do well to clear their lines.
13' Shaw tries to combine with Fernandes in the left-inside channel, but the offload from the Portuguese just escapes the full-back.
11' Rice sends Cresswell down the left flank and he floats a cross into the box, but it is a comfortable one for De Gea to gather.
9' Shaw wins the ball for United and offloads to Fernandes in space. The Portuguese tries to thread the needle to release Greenwood in the West Ham box, but the pass just has too much pace for the forward to reach.
7' Pogba is not moving freely after receiving treatment. That will be a concern for the Red Devils.
5' Pogba requires treatment after colliding with Zouma in the middle of the park.
4' McTominay rises from the resulting corner from Shaw, but he glances his effort comfortably over the bar.
3' Coufal allows the ball to travel behind believing that West Ham will have a goal-kick. However, the referee points correctly for a corner. It could be a costly mistake.
1' We're under way at London Stadium.
There will be a minute of applause before kick-off in the memory of Jimmy Greaves.
West Ham have won two of their last six Premier League games against Man Utd (D1 L3), though they are winless in three against the Red Devils. The Hammers had won just one of their previous 19 against them in the competition (D5 L13).
United have made three changes to their side from their defeat to Young Boys last time out. McTominay returns from injury to start in front of the back four alongside Fred, wiith Van de Beek dropping to the bench. Varane returns in the heart of the defence to replace Lindelof. Sancho is withdrawn in the final third, which sees Greenwood restored to the starting line-up.
Moyes has made four changes to his side beat Zagreb during the week. Antonio is suspended after being dismissed against Southampton last time out. Vlasic shifts forward, while Bowen slots into the team in the final third. Lanzini makes way for Benrahma in the second attacking change. The other two alterations see Ogbonna and Coufal slot into the back four in place of Fredericks and Diop, who are both on the bench.
MANCHESTER UNITED SUBS: Eric Bailly, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, Diogo Dalot, Tom Heaton, Jadon Sancho, Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek.
MANCHESTER UNITED (4-2-3-1): David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Fred; Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Cristiano Ronaldo.
WEST HAM SUBS: Andriy Yarmolenko, Manuel Lanzini, Alphonse Areola, Craig Dawson, Mark Noble, Issa Diop, Ryan Fredericks, Arthur Masuaku, Alex Kral.
WEST HAM (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Vladimir Coufal, Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell; Declan Rice, Tomas Soucek, Jarod Bown, Said Benrahma, Pablo Fornals; Nikola Vlasic.
Manchester United were dealt their first defeat of the campaign, suffering a shock 2-1 upset at the hands of Young Boys in their Champions League opener. The Red Devils have been extremely impressive in the Premier League, winning three out of their four matches. The return of Cristiano Ronaldo has provided a spark, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be wary of a hangover from their first loss of the term. They cannot afford to take the Hammers lightly.
West Ham have made an unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign, winning two and drawing two of their opening four matches. The Hammers continued their impressive form with a strong performance during the week to overcome Dinamo Zagreb on the road in their opening Europa League contest. David Moyes' men are in prime form, although they will be tested this afternoon against the Red Devils, especially considering they're without Michail Antonio.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between West Ham United and Manchester United at London Stadium.
