West Ham Force Man United To Fourth Straight Home Draw

Manchester United and West Ham United battled to a 1-1 draw in their English Premier League fixture at Old Trafford on Sunday.

It was United’s fourth home Premier League draw, the first time they have had such a run ever.
It was the visitors who took a shock lead inside the opening 90 seconds through Diafra Sakho, the second earliest United have ever conceded at home in the EPL era.
Dimitri Payer floated in a free kick and Sakho got ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to open his goal scoring account in what has been an injury-hit campaign.
The hosts levelled scores in the 21st minute through Ibrahimovic.
The forward nodded the ball home after he was set up by a sublime ball from Paul Pogba.
Eight minutes later, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands by centre referee Jonathan Moss for kicking a water bottle on the touch line after Paul Pogba was issued a yellow card for diving.
Jesse Lingard and Ibrahimovic had chances to hand United the lead in the closing moments of the first half but were unable to breach the West Ham defence.
The visitors started strongly after the break and nearly took the lead once again through Payet but David De Gea tipped his free kick over the bar.
Wayne Rooney and Henrikh Mkhitaryan took the places of Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata as United looked for the winner.
Lingard and Ibrahimovic had chances to put United ahead but were thwarted by the West Ham goalkeeper.
Mkhitaryan had the ball in the back of the net 12 minutes from time but his effort was ruled out for off side.
In the end, the Hammers withstood a barrage of pressure to return to London with a point.
