David De Gea, Jesse Lingard inspire Man United comeback win at West Ham

Super-sub Jesse Lingard scored a stunning last-minute winner as Manchester United secured a comeback 2-1 win at West Ham on Sunday.
Lingard, who had a loan spell last season in West Ham, came off the bench to catch a winner with just one minute left.
In the first half, Cristiano Ronaldo levelled for the visitors after the deflected shot of Said Benrahma put West Ham on the ahead.

West Ham had the opportunity to be on a par with the stoppage, but David De Gea saved the penalty of Mark Noble for rescuing the United win.

The consequence is that United is second in the table, while the club of David Moyes is in seventh place.
"It was the last minute, I made the save. Going through my head was 'Save the ball.' It's a massive three points for us," De Gea said.
"It was a really tough game, both teams had good chances, again a great goal from Jesse. In the dressing room, we said the three points were the most important thing."
Prior to beginning, players, coaches and supporters applauded for one minute the former West Ham and England strike Jimmy Greaves, who died at the age of 81 on Sunday.

After 25 minutes Jarrod Bowen caused De Gea to save his feet before Tomas Soucek was on the bar, the hosts got the first chance.

Lukasz Fabianski, the goalkeeper from West Ham, then stopped to tip Bruno Fernandes' shot at the post.
A minute later West Ham rose from the other end of the box and opened the score after Benrahma had shot off Raphael Varane from outside.

It took United only five minutes to pull up an equalizer when Ronaldo took home from nearby areas after Fabianski botched his first flick from the cross of Fernandes.

Before the halftime, both sides had a wonderful chance, but Fabianski saved Ronaldo, while Nikola Vlasic missed the goal inside the box.
Ronaldo nearly snatched his second half for one minute, but Fabianski ran away and with a fantastic stop denied him.


Late on, United had rejected two penalty requests when Ronaldo thought Vladimir Coufal and Aaron Cresswell took him down.

However, Lingard just a minute to advance the visitors with a magnificent curling shot.

But West Ham received a penalty during stoppage time after a VAR review after the ball hit Luke Shaw's hand inside the box.

Noble was sentenced to the fine, but his spot kick was saved from De Gea in order to recover the United three points.

Lingard also had a sense of redemption, whose street pass on Tuesday gave the final winner of the Champions League to Young Boys.

"Football errors — you have to overcome those things," remarked Lingard. "I have a great reception. I had a nice experience here, but I need move on, and do my best at Man United."
