Putting in what was a professional performance on Sunday afternoon, Manchester United claimed a thumping 3-0 victory against West Ham at Old Trafford.
With the red-hot Rasmus Hojlund opening the scoring midway through the first half and notching his fourth strike in as many appearances, Erik ten Hag’s side will take plenty of positives away from a gritty display on home soil.
Although the Hammers might have dominated possession over large spells, United were at their clinical best as Argentina ace Alejandro Garnacho bagged a second half brace.
Now collecting seven points from their previous three Premier League outings, Sunday’s 3-0 win also helped the former champions skyrocket their way back into the top-six.
Although West Ham might have secured an eye-catching 2-0 victory when they welcomed Manchester United to east London over the festive period, the Europa League outfit will feel that they missed out on a potential opportunity.
Now without a win from any of their last six domestic appearances on the spin, the Hammers have also recorded just a single away win since the start of December.
