A landmark goal for Marcus Rashford proved decisive as Manchester United edged past West Ham United 1-0 to climb up to fifth.

The breakthrough came on 38 minutes, Rashford rising highest to head in a Christian Eriksen cross for his 100th Manchester United goal.

West Ham pressed for an equaliser in the second half and David De Gea superbly denied Kurt Zouma and then Declan Rice, as United held on to extend their unbeaten league run to five matches and move a point behind Newcastle United in fourth.West Ham drop to 13th on 14 points.

West Ham coach David Moyes said,”Today we were as close as we’ve been. The players did a great job, we’ve not come away with anything and we deserved to. I don’t think you could ask for too much more; we turned the ball over too much in the first half but in the second we were the side who looked the more likely to score. David De Gea was fantastic, we know how good he is, and the two he’s saved today have been worldies.”

Manchester United coach Erik ten Hag said,”In this team it’s a big attitude and a winning spirit, you see that. We are improving a lot, we have to keep that process going but the fans like it. You can see a developing bond. Marcus Rashford had a great performance, we have a great academy and a great history and he represents that. It was a brilliant goal and a great milestone.”
