Loads of Man Utd fans react as Fernandes and Rashford rescue improbable victory over West Ham

Manchester United are making a habit of this.

The Reds have moved into the top four – two points from the Premier League summit – with an unlikely comeback victory against West Ham at the London Stadium.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were well below-par for an hour in front of 2,000 West Ham supporters, but turned the game around in stunning style with three superb goals.

Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford’s arrival at half-time inspired the ninth consecutive Premier League away win.

Solskjaer hoped the decisive duo wouldn’t be required with one eye on Tuesday’s game against RB Leipzig in the Champions League, but their impact was colossal.

Paul Pogba curled in a stunning long-range equaliser on the hour-mark and United were finally sparked into life.

Mason Greenwood then produced a moment of sheer brilliance to turn and find the bottom corner to put the Reds ahead.

Rashford, arguably man-of-the-match for his influence after the break, chipped in to seal United’s fifth away victory this season – in all of which they have been behind in.

Questions will remain over United’s over reliance on Rashford and Fernandes, but three points is all that will concern Solskjaer.

United are a true enigma right now but are within touching distance of the top of the league and credit must be reserved for the spirit and fight of Solskjaer’s players.
