It was a very important win for Manchester United tonight at Old Trafford, as United got a 1-0 victory over West Ham.

The Hammers has been in fine form heading into the game and were just six points off United as the race to finish in a top four place became intense.

A Craig Dawson own goal shortly after the restart gave Manchester United the three points, and Scott McTominay was pleased with the win.

McTominay said after the game: “It was really important to win the third tough game of the week … West Ham set up really well, they made it hard for us first-half … the message at half-time was to keep it the same, keep playing the best tempo you can possibly play at, and keep moving the ball from side to side.

“A lot of the boys were frustrated … but it’s not moaning, shaking your head, when you play against teams who sit in, and do it well … you have to play to the tempo that you normally play at and be positive in everything you do.”
