90+2' 

Fans are leaving in their droves, which I guess is understandable but it's still harsh on the players. In this congested period it is really tough to play 75 minutes with ten men yet they've done pretty well and worked hard.

Late free-kick for United after a deliberate handball from Reid yet there's no yellow card show. Meanwhile Lanzini comes off and Andre Ayew will get a few minutes.

87' 

In amongst all of the gloom from this game there's a pretty impressive achivement from West Ham and their fans.

85' 

Chance for Herrera but Randolph makes another good save. The corner ultimately comes for nothing.

80' 

De Gea comes for a cross from Antonio but Carroll doesn't fully commit and they collide and United can clear.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic

GOAL! WEST HAM 0-2 MANCHESTER UNITED (ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC)

That's just poor all round. Obiang is lacklustre as he clears and it bounces off Herrera into the path of Ibrahimovic.

The Swede smashes the ball home but he's offside, and quite obviosuly. Slaven Bilic will not be a happy bunny in his press conference you'd imagine.

77' 

Well that was close.

As United break Rashford unleashes a fierce shot and Randolph spills it. It comes off the posts and then his back and he can gather.

76' 

West Ham take another free-kick short and then send in a low cross. This seems strange when you have Carroll on the field.

  • Antonio Valencia

Booking for Valencia as he comes into the back of Lanzini. Nothing malicious the Ecuadorian just misread the flight of the ball.

74' 

Another chance for Pogba after good work from Rashford but once again the Frenchman's shot is just narrowly wide.

72' 

West Ham break, started by a wonderful flick by Carroll, but it reaks down when Cresswell loses is balance in the box after being played through.

71' 

That's why you bring on Andy Carroll. The ball is fired into him and although his touch is a bit off he shields the ball superbly to win a free-kick. However it's wasted by Cresswell.

  • Andy Carroll

68' 

Pogba picks the ball up just outside the area and he curls the ball wide of the post with Randolph beaten.

67' 

Antonio looks distraught, and can you blame him given the miss he produced minutes before Mata scored.

West Ham looked tired now and they need something different if they're going to get back into this.

SAVE!

United's defence falls apart and Antonio is played through by Lanzini. However De Gea wins the one-on-one battle and stands tall to make the save.

  • Marcus Rashford

57' 

United have Marcus Rashford and Martial warming up. Surely one of them is imminent?

55' 

This is a real backs to the wall job for West Ham but their fans are responding. They're shouting for handball ironically at every opportunity.

53' 

CHANCE!

It is good and if there's anyone West Ham wanted this chance to fall to it's Antonio. He can only glance it wide, that was a good opportunity.

52' 

Another free-kick for West Ham now on the right hand side of the pitch by the touchline. Payet's delivery has to be better than what we've seen so far.

51' 

Kouyate comes crunching into the back of Mkhitaryan but according to Dean it's just a foul and nothing more.

49' 

This half has picked up pretty much where the first left. Namely United parking themselves in and around the West Ham box looking for an opening.

47' 

So Carrick has dropped in to play at centre-back next to Jones with Rojo going to left-back. Pogba will drop a little deeper to help Herrera but this is every attacking by United.

  • Juan Mata

45' 

That's half-time. An early red card for West Ham's Feghouli and the referee is serenaded by a chorus of boos as he walks off.

West Ham have had their chances though, this game is not over yet.

45+2' 

There will be a late free-kick for West Ham to be taken by Payet from the touchline on the left. West Ham feel they should have got a penalty but there's nothing doing.

44'

SAVE!

West Ham's players are working unbelievably hard at the moment and they create space for Lanzini on the edge of the area. He forces an excellent save from De Gea.

Mourinho reacts by sending out Martial, Mata and Fellaini to warm-up.

  • Matteo Darmian

Now we do have a booking as Darmian's name is taking by the referee for a late challenge of his own on Antonio.

39' 

This is getting a bit scrappy now and Nordtveit probably should have been booked for a late challenge on Mkhitaryan.

37' 

There's chance now for Ibrahimovic as the flag stays down but he hits it high and wide.

35'

HOW'S THAT NOT GONE IN!?

Well they've had one now. That's an incredible stop from Randolph. The ball is played in from the left and Valencia seems certain to score. However Randolph gets back across his goal and somehow claws it out. Lingard then manages to hit the post and Randolph gathers it. That's incredible goalkeeping.

34' 

United still haven't had a shot on target yet and Jose looks pretty grumpy on the sidelines. His team are in control but Darren Randolph has had a pretty quiet afternoon so far.

32' 

Bizarrely he takes it short, a really poor decision by the Frenchman.

31' 

This time it's Pogba who gives away a free-kick. There is no yellow but there are more ironic cheers.The big men are going forward as Payet readies himself.

  • Dimitri Payet

27' 

United have a swarm of players outside the West Ham box after they counter when Cresswell loses possession. The wingers cut inside and eventually it breaks down.

25' 

West Ham win a free-kick in their own half and it is greeted with a massive ironic cheer.

23' 

You will not be surprised to learn that this game has gone very flat. United are happy to keep possession and West Ham know that they can't afford to be drawn out of position.

21' 

This is now United's game. They can control proceedings with their extra man. West Ham have to work even harder and defend extremely well.

19' 

This seems timely. Former Premier League winner Stephen Hunt on Mike Dean.

17' 

The London Stadium is a cauldron, the crowd are furious. Slaven Bilic wants someone's blood on the sidelines.

RED CARD! SOFIANE FEGHOULI

Okay well I might have jinxed it there. Feghouli looked way off the pace and after a heavy touch he went late into Phil Jones.

Jones is in a lot of pain but to the surprise of everyone Dean decides to send Feghouli off. That's a poor and strange decision.

14' 

There have been some pretty good tussles already in the midfield and to be fair to Mike Dean he's letting the game flow pretty nicely.

12' 

United are trying to take the sting out of this game as every time West Ham break the volume in the ground lifts.

West Ham are countering them by becoming very, very compact.

10'

SAVE!

Good break from West Ham that results in De Gea turning an effort from Lanzini behind.

8' 

Payet is drifting inside a lot in these opening exchanges.

7' 

Antonio produces a lovely little turn to find space but then manages to mess up the past with his team-mate just a couple of yards away.

5' 

Dimitri Payet tries to unleash one from 30 yards. It doesn't go well.

3' 

Cagey start as West Ham match United's 4-2-3-1 formation. Lanzini sits in the hole behind Michail Antonio.

1' 

And we're off!

17:15 

West Ham languish just the wrong side of mid-table obscurity with 22 points in 12th place.

17:10 

United have been helped out a bit by Arsenal dropping six points in December - there's only four points between them and the top four, now. But ten points behind Mourinho's old club, Chelsea, who top the league.

This is how that one went down...

The bus carrying the Manchester United team is escorted by police after having a window smashed on its way to West Ham's Boleyn ground before the English Premier League football match between West Ham United and Manchester United in in east London on May
17:00 

Manchester United enjoyed a pretty heavy police escort to the London Stadium today - that's after the upset as they arrived at The Hammer's previous abode, The Boleyn Ground, at the end of last season. In case you've forgotten, it wasn't exactly a warm welcome.

17:00 

Both teams have had pretty underwhelming starts to their seasons, but have picked up a little in recent games - discounting West Ham's 1-0 defeat by Leicester on Saturday. United have gone 12 games unbeaten across all competitions.

16:55 

Last time West Ham played Manchester United, they took a 4-1 thrashing in the EFL Cup quarter final back in November. They'll be hoping for a better result than that today.

16:50 

Let's get your score predictions for this one.

16:45 

This will be David De Gea's 250th game for Manchester United.

Remember when he had just arrived and everyone said he wouldn't make it? Just look at him now.
