Zlatan Ibrahimovic on target as Manchester United beat West Ham

Manchester United’s winning run marched on into the new year at the London Stadium with a tight, lop-sided but still oddly inevitable 2-0 defeat of West Ham pegged out around two decisive moments. The first was a Mike Dean joint, the Premier League’s most theatrically interventionist referee choosing to send off Sofiane Feghouli with 13 minutes gone after a challenge with Phil Jones that saw both men tackle strongly but fairly. With…

Loris Karius’s teething troubles continued while Darren Randolph reacted to the final whistle by burying his head in a towel.
