UEFA Champions League
UEFA Europa League


Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
United are next in action against AC Milan in the second leg of their Europa League round-of-16 clash at San Siro on Thursday. West Ham next play Arsenal next Sunday on home soil in the Premier League.
Manchester United return to second place in the Premier League table courtesy of a 1-0 win over West Ham United at Old Trafford. Craig Dawson put the ball into his own net from a Bruno Fernandes corner in the defining moment of the contest. Mason Greenwood rattled the post twice, while Marcus Rashford also missed a good opportunity. The Hammers offered very little in the final third, allowing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men to see out the victory with relative ease.
90' + 4' There's no time for the corner and the referee ends the contest.
90' + 3' Benrahma collects down the left flank and has to beat Wan-Bissaka with his cross, but the defender diverts it behind for a corner.

86' James delivers a low cross into the box that Fabianski pushes into a dangerous area, but Rashford is not alert to pounce on the mistake as Coufal clears.
85' United are doing their utmost to take the pace out of the game. They will not want a repeat of Milan's late leveller against them in the Europa League on Thursday.
83' Lanzini and Antonio combine down the left inside channel. The Argentine receives a return pass from his team-mate, but can only help his cross over the bar.
81' Time is running out for West Ham to force the issue. They've improved in the final third since going behind, but have not forced Henderson into a save.
79' BLOCK! Benrahma surges past James down the left flank and Lanzini offers support. The Argentine offloads to Soucek, but his effort is charged down by Maguire.
77' OFF THE POST! Greenwood surges forward on the break and goes alone with a left-footed strike from the edge of the box. He connects well, only to smash his effort straight into the left post.
M. Rashford
Yellow Card
76' Rashford goes into the book for a sliding challenge on Coufal from behind.
74' James has space on the break after Diop loses possession. United have four on two on their counter, but the Welshman sends his offload behind Fernandes and the attack peters out.
73' Lanzini angles a ball over the top for the run of Coufal. He drills a low cross into the box that forces Maguire to clear on the stretch at the near post.
72' Greenwood tries to weave his way into the West Ham box, but Dawson fends off the forward and guides the ball back to Fabianski.
69' Benrahma cuts in from the left flank and angles a cross towards Antonio, but it drifts away from the forward and into the hands of Henderson.
68' The contest is beginning to open up for both teams. West Ham may have paid the price for their defensive strategy in the first half.

Own Goal
53' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! DAWSON PUTS THE BALL INTO HIS OWN NET!!!!! 1-0 UNITED!!!!! The home side take the lead as Dawson inadvertently turns Fernandes' corner into the back of the net. The Portuguese puts his delivery on the money and McTominay rises at the near post. He appears to flick the ball on to the head of Dawson before it flies past Fabianski into the bottom-left corner.
53' CLOSE! Coufal has to act at the back post to divert Greenwood's dangerous cross behind for a corner. Rashford was lurking behind the defender and was ready to tap the ball home had he not acted.
51' Fernandes takes a touch in the final third and rifles a shot towards the target, only to see his effort blocked by the legs of Soucek.

Yellow Card
49' McTominay blocks off the run of Diop and goes into the book.
47' Cresswell slips as he attempts to control a long ball forward from United. James pounces and tries to send a low cross into the box, but there's no red shirt there to attack it.
46' We're back underway at Old Trafford.
David Moyes will be satisfied with his side's performance, although he will want to see a lot more from them in the final third in the second half. They've failed to register an attempt in the opening period. The Hammers must show more ambition after the break.
It's goalless at the break between Manchester United and West Ham United in their Premier League clash at Old Trafford. The Red Devils should be ahead, but Marcus Rashford failed to hit the target from close range with a header. Mason Greenwood was denied by a fine save from Lukas Fabianski. The home side have done all the pressing, but have failed to break down the Hammers.
45' There will be two minutes of added time.
45' James tries to twist and turn in the final third, but he is crowded out before he can threaten by several West Ham defenders.
44' Bowen smashes a cross into his team-mate Coufal, which sees the ball trickle behind for a goal-kick. That sums up West Ham's attacking display in the first half.
43' Bowen has space to run down the right flank, but his cross is diverted away from the box with ease by Maguire.
41' Antonio charges up the field, but he is quelled by a strong challenge from McTominay. There has not been much for the forward to work with in the first half.
39' SAVE! Fernandes floats a ball over the top for Rashford to head at goal from six yards out. However, he cannot generate any power on his effort, and Fabianski makes a comfortable stop.
37' WHAT A SAVE! Greenwood cuts inside to shoot on his left foot from the edge of the box, but Fabianski sticks out a hand to divert his strike on to the post and wide. Fernandes opens up the West Ham defence on the counter and Greenwood collects and cuts inside to fire at goal, only to be denied by a super stop.
35' Cresswell works the ball short to Rice, but his attempt to force a low cross into the middle from the left inside channel is repelled by Wan-Bissaka.
A. Wan-Bissaka
Yellow Card
35' Antonio is brought down by Wan-Bissaka on the left flank. The United full-back goes into the book.
34' Rashford clips a pass forward to Shaw, who goes for a cutback across the middle, but Dawson is on hand to clear for the Hammers.
31' Rashford goes for goal from distance, but Rice is on hand to divert his effort behind. West Ham are having to defend a lot of corners.
31' Greenwood continues to threaten as he collects and goes for a blast from 20 yards that is charged down by Dawson.
30' CLOSE! Shaw releases Greenwood down the left inside channel and he turns away from Rice. He drills a low ball towards the near post, but Fabianski gathers amid a deflection off Cresswell.
29' Greenwood probes down the left flank, but lacks options in the box. He tries to force a pass through to Rashford that is cleared behind by Noble.
27' Maguire is back on his feet for the home side and willing to continue. The medics appear to agree that he can resume.
26' Maguire has a clash of heads with Antonio in the centre circle. The United skipper looks shaken up after the collision.
25' RASHFORD MISSES A SITTER! Greenwood bends a delightful cross in from the right flank on his left foot. It travels over the head of Diop to Rashford at the back post. The forward rises, but can only glance his header wide of the left post.
24' Fernandes and Greenwood combine on the edge of the box, but the Portuguese snatches at his left-footed strike and Fabianski gathers.

22' Shaw has a run down the left flank and surges into the inside channel. Soucek is on hand to clear behind for the visitors.
19' Bowen has a hard fall after challenging for the ball, but he appears to be okay following treatment on the field.
18' Creswell whips a dangerous cross into the box that takes a wicked deflection. Bowen challenges for it in the air, but Henderson comes through with a vital punch for the home side.
15' Bowen has space to raid and is brought down in the West Ham half by Fred. The United midfielder avoids a booking probably due to the position of the forward as he was yet to surge into United territory.
14' Greenwood has space to run at Diop down the left flank, but he loses out to the West Ham defender, who wins possession with ease.
13' Fernandes wins possession and offloads to McTominay in the final third, but the return pass from the Scot is intercepted by Johnson.
10' Coufal works an offload to Soucek, and he tries to clip a pass beyond Maguire for the run of Antonio. However, it lacks the power to beat Maguire, who clears back to Henderson.
8' United have started with energy attempting to bring Shaw into the game down the left flank. The full-back is played with a lot of confidence.
6' Fernandes loses possession and it allows Antonio to surge into the left inside channel. He goes for a cutback, but Lindelof makes the interception.
5' McTominay stretches in a 50/50 challenge and catches Rice on the ankle. The Hammers midfielder takes a while to get to his feet, but appears to be ready to play on.
4' CHANCE! Shaw and Rashford combine down the left flank to allow the former to drill a low ball into the box. Greenwood latches on to the delivery, only to scuff his strike at goal.
2' West Ham probe down the left flank through Johnson and win a corner. Noble delivers the ball to the back post, but it flies over the head of Soucek and Dawson.
1' We're underway at Old Trafford.
Manchester United are looking to complete their first league double over West Ham since 2013-14, when they were managed by current Hammers boss David Moyes.
West Ham have made three changes to their side that beat Leeds last time out. Jesse Lingard is unavailable against his parent club, while Pablo Fornals misses out due to injury. Bowen, Noble and Johnson start behind the lone attacker Antonio. Benrahma drops to the bench for the Hammers. 
United have made four changes to their side that drew with Milan during the week. Rashford comes back into the fold to replace Anthony Martial, who misses out due to injury. Fred starts in front of the back four in place of Matic. Lindelof and Shaw return to the backline. Matic, Telles and Bailly all drop to the bench.
WEST HAM SUBS: Fabian Balbuena, Said Benrahma, Manuel Lanzini, Frederik Alves, David Martin, Nathan Trott, Ademipo Odubeko, Conor Coventry.
WEST HAM (5-3-2): Lukasz Fabianski; Vladimir Coufal, Craig Dawson, Issa Diop, Aaron Cresswell, Ben Johnson; Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice, Mark Noble; Jarrod Bowen, Michail Antonio.
MANCHESTER UNITED SUBS: Eric Bailly, Lee Grant, Amad Diallo, Alex Telles, Nathan Bishop, Nemanja Matic, Brandon Williams, Axel Tuanzebe, Shola Shoretire.
MANCHESTER UNITED (4-2-3-1): Dean Henderson; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Fred; Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Daniel James; Marcus Rashford.
West Ham bounced back from their defeat to Manchester City with a confident performance to see off Leeds United last time out. The Hammers begin the evening three points behind Chelsea in fifth place, although they will have a game in hand over their London rivals at the end of this game. It will be a challenge for David Moyes' men to earn a positive result even though they have been in excellent form of late.
United secured a huge result last week against Manchester City, defeating their rivals 2-0 on the road. However, Leicester City have since surpassed them in second place and work is required to overtake the Foxes. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer were denied a win during the week as a last-gasp header from Simon Kjaer secured a draw for AC Milan in their Europa League round-of-16 clash. United need a response to keep their momentum going in the back end of the term.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League contest between Manchester United and West Ham United at Old Trafford.
