Manchester United celebrated a convincing 3-0 victory against West Ham at Old Trafford, showcasing a stellar performance led by Rasmus Hojlund and Alejandro Garnacho. The win propels United to sixth place in the Premier League table.
Hojlund, in excellent form, opened the scoring in the first half with a skillful move after Casemiro’s well-fought ball retrieval. He weaved past Nayef Aguerd and found the net, extending his Premier League goal streak to four games.
Garnacho doubled the lead early in the second half, cutting inside and firing a shot that deflected off Aguerd, leaving Lukasz Fabianski with no chance. The third goal came from Garnacho again, guided by a precise pass from Scott McTominay.
Despite the victory, there was concern for Lisandro Martinez, who left the field with a knee injury. The match marked Erik ten Hag’s 50th game in charge at Old Trafford, and the Reds delivered an impressive performance, especially from Garnacho, who was awarded the Player of the Match.
The win elevates Manchester United above West Ham in the league standings. The young trio of Hojliund (21 years old), Garnacho (19), and Kobbie Mainoo (18) displayed promising potential, reminiscent of legendary combinations in the club’s history. While not drawing direct comparisons, the trio’s unity on the field hints at exciting prospects for Manchester United’s future.
