“The player had a 4/10 rating against West Ham. Whoever brought him into this club needs to be sacked immediately. Enough is enough.” –
Manchester United owner, Glazers, has conveyed to Erik Ten Hag that the player who lost 100% of duels against West Ham last night must never play for Manchester United again.
The first half witnessed minimal goalmouth action, and it appeared that the game would end in a goalless draw after 90 minutes of lackluster football.
However, Jarrod Bowen broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute, capitalizing on a delightful outside-of-the-foot pass from Lucas Paqueta.
Six minutes later, the Brazilian notched his fifth assist in two Premier League games, setting up former Ajax player Mohammed Kudus, who slotted home with his right foot.
This goal solidified United’s position in eighth place and marked their eighth loss in 18 top-flight matches this season.
Manchester United’s statistics against West Ham:
Andre Onana had a relatively quiet first 45 minutes as his team dominated possession, holding 62% of the ball.
In reality, the first half lacked quality, resulting in a somewhat scrappy game at times.
Ten Hag’s side had six attempts at goal, accumulating 0.61 xG, according to Sofascore.
