Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s problems are mounting after Marcus Rashford was injured during Manchester United’s demoralising 2-0 defeat at West Ham.
The England striker limped off with a groin problem during the second half as United’s lack of options in attack were laid bare.
With Anthony Martial still injured and youngster Mason Greenwood ill, Jesse Lingard had to fill in up front against the Hammers.
Life looks far brighter for West Ham, whose captain Mark Noble this week claimed they could even break into the top four this season.
They are certainly heading in the right direction after a hard-fought third win in four matches, and a third consecutive clean sheet.
“I’m very happy about all of today,” manager Manuel Pellegrini said. “The way we played – I always talk with the players that we must have the mentality to play the same way we work during the week.
“It doesn’t matter if we play United or against every big team. We must trust that we are able to beat them.”
