Manchester United bounced back from their midweek Champions League setback to trash West Ham 2-1 in a dramatic finale that saw the Hammers fail to convert a potential 94th-minute equalizing penalty kick.

West Ham manager David Moyes controversially brought in Mark Noble off the bench just to take the penalty which was awarded after a Luke Shaw hand ball.

The penalty attempt by the 34-year-old Noble was poor and he watched while flamboyant Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea palm it away.

It was Manchester United sub Jesse Lingard, who came off the bench, to score a sensational winner in the 89th minute.

Lingard was a fan favorite at West Ham during a brief loan spell in 2020-21 and the West Ham crowd gave him an ovation when he subbed into the match in the 73rd minute.

He refrained from celebrating after he found the top right corner, unleashing a curling right-footed shot to conclude a weaving run into the box
