Man­chester Uni­ted had to make do with­out the ser­vices of de­fender Mat­teo Dar­mian and mid­fielder Mar­ou­ane Fel­laini who was in­jured and sus­pen­ded re­spect­ively.

Fol­low­ing the ha­lf-time re­fresh­ments, Man­chester Uni­ted re­stored par­ity thanks to a clo­se ran­ge goal from An­thony Mar­tial in the 51st min­ute of the en­counter, and the French­man net­ted ag­ain when he fou­nd the tar­get from a dif­fi­cult angle twenty-one min­utes min­utes la­ter. But wi­th four­teen min­utes re­maining of nor­mal time, Mi­chail An­tonio made it 2-2 wi­th a head­er be­fore Win­ston Re­id nod­ded ho­me the win­ner for West Ham in the 81st min­ute to seal a 3-2 win for The Irons over The Reds in what was the last foot­ball mat­ch to be played at Boleyn Gro­und.
