And on that cheery note from Keane, we’ll leave it at that.

Check out our Man United v West Ham match report before heading over to our Chelsea v Liverpool liveblog.

Bye for now!

“I knew things were bad but I’m shocked and saddened about how bad Manchester United were today,” says Roy Keane with a damning assessment of the result.  

“There was a lack of characters, a lack of quality, a lack of leaders.

“It’s scary how far they have fallen.”

West Ham 2-0 Man United

Worrying times for Man United as the Hammers move up to fourth with a thoroughly deserved victory at home.

Yarmolenko got them off the mark with a goal just before half-time after what was a very disappointing first half.

Man United appeared to step up their game after the restart and came close to getting an equaliser. But Aaron Cresswell settled the clash with a well-taken free which he placed in the top corner.

Four minutes of added time to be played.

And Cresswell makes no mistake from the second attempt.

He lifts the ball over the wall and curls his shot past De Gea into the top corner to double West Ham’s lead.

Surely, that will be enough for the hosts to take the spoils. 

80 mins: West Ham 1-0 Man United

Noble draws a free from Ashley Young and Cresswell has another chance to test De Gea.

76 mins: West Ham 1-0 Man United

MISS!!

Not a bad effort from Cresswell whose shot just trails over the bar. Man United come back down the other end and try to put James through but Fabianski does well again to win the race for possession.

The ball comes to Lingard but his shot is blocked and the visitors have a corner.

Silly foul from Fred on Jack Wilshere gifts a free-kick to West Ham in a very dangerous position.

Scott McTominay has been far better for Man United in the second half.

SAVE!!

Maguire sees his shot saved by Fabianski but he really should have scored. The chance came from a corner which found Maguire out on the opposite side of the penalty area.

He headed the ball down to McTominary to tee up the shot and Maguire went for power. But the shot was straight at the West Ham keeper. 

The pace has really jumped up a few notches in the second half and both sides are much more intent on engineering attacks.

61 mins: West Ham 1-0 Man United

SAVE!!

De Gea reacts to deny Anderson from close range and keep the deficit at just one goal. Yarmolenko was instrumental in that move to flick the ball into Anderson to apply the finish, but the Man United keeper did well to keep the ball out from a tight angle.

59 mins: West Ham 1-0 Man United

Rashford makes his way from the field after receiving treatment. Jesse Lingard is warming up to replace him up front.

An attempted cross comes back off Ashley Young’s arm for a corner, but there’s no call for a penalty.

53 mins: West Ham 1-0 Man United

Daniel James lobs the ball into the West Ham area for Pereira to get on the end of, but Fabianski gets off his line in time to kill off the danger.

Encouraging start from Man United in the second half, building up some meaningful attacks to try and get the equaliser.

MISS!!

Mata should have scored at the back post.

McTominay starts the move well and slips the ball out to Pereira. He cuts the ball across to the incoming Mata who should have finished the effort to the net.

45 mins: West Ham 1-0 Man United

The second half is underway as Man United go in search of an equaliser. 

“It summed up United’s performances, just not good enough.” – Roy Keane fumes at his former club’s poor defending that led to West Ham’s goal.

45 mins: West Ham 1-0 Man United

Well the game certainly needed that!

After such a slow and laboured opening, West Ham have finally broken the deadlock with the first meaningful attack of the afternoon. 

And it’s Andriy Yarmolenko who finds the target with a shot from the edge of the area. The marking from Man United was poor and they now find themselves trailing by a goal.

40 mins: West Ham 0-0 Man United

Daniel James collides with Mark Noble as he thumps the ball clear. The Man United youngster gets a free as half-time draws near.

Gary Neville says the quality of the game has been poor on the Sky Sports commentary.

36 mins: West Ham 0-0 Man United

SAVE!!

Noble tries to volley the ball home from a corner, but he fails to connect with the shot properly and the ball bounces into De Gea’s hands.

34 mins: West Ham 0-0 Man United

Wan-Bissaka in again with another well-time tackle to snuff out another Man United attack. 

26 mins: West Ham 0-0 Man United

Another promising West Ham attack but they can’t get the finish off, but they get another throw-in. 

An attempted cross from Yarmolenko is blocked out and Daniel James earns a free from Diop.

18 mins: West Ham 0-0 Man United

Matic sends a nice pass through to Rashford who tries to cut the ball across the West Ham area.

But the hosts reclaim possession and go on the counter. The move comes to Yarmolenko who tries to test De Gea, but the effort doesn’t trouble the United keeper.

16 mins: West Ham 0-0 Man United

Matic lets off the first real shot at goal, but his effort is easily collected byFabianski to get West Ham moving again. 

Aaron Wan-Bissaka does well to cut out an attack at the other end and Man United launch another attack.

Not much pace in this game so far and neither side seem willing to commit to going on the attack.

11 mins: West Ham 0-0 Man United 

Yarmolenko tries to link up with Anderson with a cross-field pass but there’s too much power behind the kick and the ball trickles out for a throw-in.

But West Ham are still in Man United territory before Andreas Pereira makes a break and wins a free.

4 mins: West Ham 0-0 Man United 

Harry Maguire concedes the first corner of the game after trying to clear the ball. Nothing comes of the opportunity but West Ham manage to maintain possession and keep the press on Man United.

3 mins: West Ham 0-0 Man United 

Haller does well to turn over possession in Man United’s half of the pitch to set-up a counter-attack and put the visitors under a bit of pressure in the early minutes.

It’s been raining heavily prior to kick-off so it will be interesting to see who can adapt to the conditions. 

1 min: West Ham 0-0 Man United 

And we’re off at the London Stadium!

The teams are coming out of the tunnel now. We’re almost ready to get underway.
