Manchester United came from behind to win a fifth successive away game in the Premier League on Saturday. Goals from Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford secured a 3-1 win for the Red Devils over West Ham.
This latest comeback win, which is becoming something of a Manchester United trademark this season, sees them clamber up to fourth in the table with 10 games played. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are now just two points off the top.
Interestingly, it was the home side that started the game in impressive fashion, as they went into the half time break leading 1-0 thanks to a goal from Tomas Soucek. The Czech midfielder tapped in Declan Rice’s flick-on from close range in the 38th minute.
Despite enjoying more of the possession, the visitors were lucky to be facing just the single-goal deficit at the break. West Ham created some gaping spaces in the Manchester United defence, but failed to make the most of several extremely presentable chances.
Manchester United threw on Bruno Fernandes and Rashford straight from kick-off in the second half. Their introduction seemed to breathe new life into the Red Devils, who began their now-customary comeback in away fixtures with a superb long-range strike from Pogba in the 65th minute.
