Manchester United defeated West Ham 3-0 at Old Trafford to celebrate its 21st birthday with a dominant victory in their fourth straight Premier League match.

Two more goals from Alejandro Garnacho compounded the visiting team’s problems. Now, six points behind Tottenham in fourth place in the Premier League standings, United has risen to sixth place. Rasmus Højlund initiated the scoring in the middle of the first half, capitalizing on a defensive error by West Ham. The goal was scored by the Danish international, who now has goals in four straight Premier League games.

Just three minutes into the second half, Emerson provided a good opportunity for the Hammers, but United extended their lead within a minute as Garnacho intercepted the ball and scored, leaving the visitors struggling to recover.

Despite West Ham’s efforts to come back into the game, a notable moment occurred when Diogo Delot successfully challenged Jarrod Bowen, leading to a counter-attack that resulted in a goal for United. Kelvin Phillips had a difficult start to his loan move, losing possession in midfield and allowing Garnacho to find the net.

Manchester United moved up to sixth place in the Premier League rankings with this significant victory over West Ham. The three young talents – Højlund (21), Garnacho (19), and Manu (18) – showcased their potential, hinting at brighter days ahead for United.
