Full-time

So like last season it turned into another torrid day at the London Stadium. We were never at it today, from the off we were lethargic, with no ideas of how to break down West Ham. Sloppy defending allowed West Ham to score the opening goal just before half-time.

In the second-half we played with a bit more urgency and should have equalisd through Mata and then Maguire but failed to take those chances. West Ham then punished us with a late free-kick goal from Cresswell.

To compound our problems Rashford picked up a thigh injury which left us without any fit strikers for the last 30 minutes of the match. Our lack of squad depth was really exposed today.

A bad day.

Goal for West Ham United!

That's probably that then. Cresswell had a sighter from a similar range a few minutes ago and gets it right this time. He fires his free-kick into the top corner, De Gea gets a finger tip to it but can't keep it out.

10 minutes to go. We've done better in this second half and should really have scored an equaliser with two clear cut chances. Can we come up with something in the final part of the game?
