As emphatic a performance as any Red Devil could have asked for. 

This is Anirudh Menon signing off. Thank you for your company!

Toodle - ooo 

It all stemmed from Basti's enthusiasm. The German runs onto a throw from Rooney and picks out Herrera with a superb outside of the boot pass. The Spaniard pulls out a couple of stepovers and squares it to Zlatan. The King passes it in and raises his hands to bask in the adulation of Stretford End. Sublime Football


93' Kouyate lays it off to Feghouli after Obiang pings in yet another delightful ball. The ball flies an inch away from the far post

92' Feghouli runs on to a neat pass from Fernands but the Algerian's smart finish can only ripple the side netting

91' THREE Minutes of added on time 

91' Substitution - the superb Mkhitaryan OFF, Marcus Rashford ON


89' Simone Zaza jumps up for a high ball, but his header loops into the arms of  De Gea

87' Feghouli - who has been impressive all day - almost runs through United's defence before Jones blocks it. It goes out to Fernands whose HAMMER shot is blocked well by Blind. That must have hurt though

Remember him, anyone?

86' B.A.S.T.I.A.N S.C.H.W.E.I.N.S.T.E.I.G.E.R in for Anthony Martial 

85' Zlatan tries to over complicate things inside the West Ham box and Obiang gets fed up. He puts in solid tackle and goes on to run with the ball.

83' Lanzini takes a superb swerving header, but Zaza cannot get a firm enough connection to it 

82' Zaza has a pop. The ball goes PARALLEL to goal. How he managed that will puzzle physicists for ages

81' This is liquid football - Henrikh sends in teasing cross all the way across the box to Zlatan who tries to place it into the corner. Adrian is upto the challenge, and does superbly to palm it away. Nothing much comes off the cotner

80' Wayne Rooney has a marauding run in from the left flank - he should have played in Martial there - but you can't deny that Rooney has earned his touch of selfishness there tonight 

79' Nothing comes off said corner. 

78' Wayne Rooney has a pop, then Henrikh Mkhitaryan has one. The Armenian's is deflected away by Reid for corner

77' Rojo deposits Zaza on the floor with a firm yet fair challenge. The Argentine has been excellent tonight 

76' Wayne Ronney runs in goal, but he's rightly given offside. The man has looked livelier today than I have seen in the recent past. 

75' SUBSTITUTION - Payet OFF, Penalty shootout fame Simone Zaza ON

74' OH MY! Wayne Rooney has been smacked in the face in the penalty box and the man is LIVID with the ref for not getting a penalty! WInston Reid smacked him in the face! The move was all due to Zlatan acrobatically bicycle kicking a pass to Rooney

73' Rooney and Martial try a neat one two but the omnipresent, and ever-excellent Obiang gets in the way! 

72' A devilish delivery from Mkhitaryan is smartly cut out by Kouyate

71' Kouyate with a foul throw. How a professional footballer can be guilty of such a silly crime I will never understand

70' An athletic interception from Obiang stops Zlatan from bearing down on goal! United are turning on the style here

68' Kouyate smacks the ball at Blind, and wins a corner. Payet's corner as always is exceptional buy Valencia gathers once again. 

67' Phil "Sir Duncan" Jones hammers into Lanzini, wins the ball fairly, and runs way with a ball. The Englishman is looking as confident as he has ever looked in his career. Whoever says Jose Mourinho has lost his man management skills - Jones is Exhibit A for the counterpoint 

65' Zlatan shrugs away Ogbonna like the man is a rag doll.  How strong is that Viking!

64' With a better first touch, Wayne Rooney would have had a chance to be one on one with the keeper!! 

It was all started by Valencia and Mkhitaryan down the right. They exchange cute passes before the Armenian feeds Ibra. The Swede turns on the ooomph and threads the eye of  a needle to let Valencia in behind the Hammers defense. A simple enough squared ball, and Martial has a tap in. Effing Beautiful for Jose's boys


60' Zlatan bullets a shot at goal, and Adrian does exceedingly well to hold on to the ball. 

59' United are pressing them all over the pitch here and they discomfit West Ham enough to win the ball back. Wayne Rooney wins the freekick in David Beckham territory  

57' Michail Antonio is down with an injury, and it looks like Bilic is getting in Manuel Lanzini in his place! Kitchen sink being thrown in already?

56' Rooney plays in Martial with a brilliant slide rule pass, and the Frenchman hits it first time with this his left foot BUT ITS STRAIGHT AT ADRIAN!! 

55' OH zlatan. What an audacious crossfield ball that was. He is a fantasista of a player isn't he. 

54' Excellent tackle by Blind stops Feghouli squaring it to Fletcher. The Dutchman wins the goal kick. 

53' Rooney enters the ref's naughty book as  he deposits Kouyate on the ground with no great ceremony. He has a a right ol go at the ref afterwards. THIS IS VINTAGE ROONEY!
