Man United 1-1 West Ham: Hammers seal survival with hard-fought point at Old Trafford

We confirmed our Premier League status for another season tonight after a draw against Manchester United.

Michail Antonio put the us ahead in first-half stoppage time with his eighth goal in six games after Paul Pogba gave away a penalty when he raised his hands to block a Declan Rice free-kick. Eighteen-year-old Mason Greenwood levelled with his 17th goal of a stellar first season as a senior player.

Both sides had chances to win it, with under-pressure David de Gea producing a fingertip save to repel a deflected Jarrod Bowen effort and substitute Odion Ighalo turning a near-post effort wide at the other end.

But thanks to Antonio, who has scored more goals in the past 22 days than he has managed in either of the two previous seasons, Moyes has twice dragged West Ham clear of a perilous situation in a relegation fight.

Unlike two years ago, when we ditched the Scot in favour of Manuel Pellegrini, it seems certain we’ll to stick with Moyes, who has already told the club he wants them to start promising less and delivering more.
