Manchester United retained 2nd place in the Premier League with a narrow victory over West Ham United on Sunday. The game ended 1-0.
The only goal came in the 53rd minute and came in the name of defender Craig Dawson, who worked the ball from a corner kick by Bruno Fernandes into his own goal. Given the game image, Manchester United’s victory was too small. The home team missed quite a few opportunities.
Van de Beek
Donny van de Beek was again missing from the match selection for the winning team. According to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the former Ajax player is only completely fit again after the international match at the end of March.
The deficit of ManUnited (which can now smell a Champions League ticket) on fellow city rivals Manchester City is still 14 points, with a game less played. The leader won 3-0 at Fulham on Saturday. Number 3 Leicester City lashed out against Sheffield United (5-0) and is 15 points behind the list leader.
