Man United Edge West Ham To Reclaim Second Spot

Manchester United tightened their grip on a return to the Champions League next season as Craig Dawson’s own goal earned Ole Gunnar’s men a 1-0 win over West Ham.

Victory moved United back above Leicester into second in the Premier League and closed the gap to runaway leaders Manchester City to 14 points.

Despite also having a game in hand on their local rivals, the Red Devils are unlikely to haul in Pep Guardiola’s men but do now enjoy a nine-point cushion over the fifth-placed Hammers in the battle for Champions League places.

Former United boss David Moyes has failed to win in 15 attempts as the visiting manager at Old Trafford and the Scot was left to rue an overly cautious approach before falling behind early in the second half.
