Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell's goals were five games without a loss for West Ham United by beating Manchester United 2-0. At the end of a first half played in a uniform manner, a quality moment of West Ham opened the scoring. Felipe Anderson found Yarmolenko right inside the penalty area, and the Ukrainian hit the ball hard in the lower corner. Juan Mata wasted a glorious opportunity to match just after the break, shooting from the center of Andreas Pereira, while Lukasz Fabianski denied Harry Maguire at close range.

Manchester United suffered a disappointing 2-0 loss to West Ham United in Sunday's Premier League clash. The Hammers' goals were courtesy of Andriy Yarmolenko's excellent blow in the first half and Aaron Cresswell's excellent free kick in the second period, which ensured that the hosts took all three points at the London Stadium. It was a silent opening to meet the weather that seemed to tarnish the resolution of both sides, literally. It took 15 minutes for the first note, which was courtesy of Nemanja Matic, whose effort of about 25 yards was well supported by Lukasz Fabianski. Shortly after, David De Gea made Yarmolenko's speculative effort, before the Hammers' defense turned off the dangerous career of Marcus Rashford.
The Reds were growing in the game and by the 20th minute they were certainly the best team, but they failed to create clear opportunities. Andreas Pereira's shot, which deflected well through a corner, proved to be one of the best opportunities of the opening period. Then, the Hammers set up a test effort when Pablo Fornals found Mark Noble from a free kick, forcing De Gea to cross his goal line to save. While we had started the game better, West Ham finished the first period at the top and made his superiority count only a minute before the break. Yarmolenko picked up the ball on the right flank and handed it to Noble while the Ukrainian continued running towards the area. The Irons captain found Fornals, who quickly slid the ball against Yarmolenko, who took a touch to regain his composure before passing a low shot at De Gea, helpless, to make sure Manuel Pellegrini's men got one in. Rest.
After only three minutes of the second half, Andreas picked up the ball on the right flank and, after quickly passing through Cresswell, shot through the area to wait for Juan Mata. Unfortunately, our number 8 was only a few centimeters away from turning it home. Moments later, Yarmolenko produced a test effort that De Gea clung to his body. There was a much more open feeling to things in the second half with both sides creating more shooting opportunities. Scott McTominay approached with an effort from a narrow angle and shortly after the ball deviated from Sebastien Haller's knee and went away.
The Reds were forced into a substitution just after the hour mark when Rashford fell with an injury and was replaced by Jesse Lingard, who assumed the role of the center forward. West Ham continued to prove dangerous from wide areas and Felipe Anderson was near a rare raid on the right flank. Her propelled attack forced De Gea to a clever salvation before the United's defense hastily rejected her.
After 68 minutes, Harry Maguire had a great opportunity to put United on equal footing when the ball bounced on his way into the area from a corner, but Fabianski made a good save. Then it was the hosts who approached, this time through Cresswell's free kick, which ended, but it turned out to be simply a general rehearsal for the left back.
In the 84th minute, after the absence of Ashley Young on Noble, Cresswell lined up another fixed piece, which this time curled up in the upper corner of the goal to put the game out of United's reach. Daniel James had a late effort that rippled the side net, but it turned out to be the last chance to stand out on a frustrating afternoon for the Reds.
