Noble Steps-Off The Bench For A Penalty To Gift ManU A Win

Posted by

Jesse Lingard’s stunning late goal secured Manchester United’s victory over his former club West Ham. Mark Noble came off the bench for an injury-time penalty, which was saved.

Lingard, who had a successful loan spell at London Stadium last season, came on as a second-half replacement and scored with two minutes left on his right foot into the top corner.

More drama ensued when Luke Shaw was ruled to have handballed in the box, and De Gea dove the correct way to push away Noble’s spot-kick, which was his first touch since coming off the bench in the 95th minute.

Said Benrahma’s effort from outside the box had taken a spectacular deflection off defender Raphael Varane to give West Ham the lead five minutes earlier.

Fabianski, who had made a string of stops for the home side, had brilliantly turned a first-time shot by Bruno Fernandes onto the post. With four victories and a tie this season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team stay unbeaten in the league, while West Ham suffer their first defeat of the season.
