Gary Neville reacts to United's late win over West Ham

What a feeling. Marcus Rashford grabbed the latest of late winners as Manchester United scooped a dramatic 1-0 win over West Ham.

Cavani was close to being offside in the lead-up to the goal and that will no doubt attract plenty of discussion from pundits and opposition fans alike.

But United legend Gary Neville tweeted his reaction to rule the Uruguayan onside before he squared the ball across goal.

The decision is set to be a talking point, but that does not matter to United now. They got a crucial victory and are into the top four.

Both league meetings with the Hammers have been dramatic so far this season.

Jesse Lingard got a late winner in the September match at the London Stadium, before David de Gea made an even later penalty save.

Those contributions and today’s have earned four points against a direct rival for the top four spots.

Goalscorer Rashford also took to Twitter to comment on his goal, hailing the fact that it continued United’s best traditions of scoring late, late goals.

Rashford has scored in two consecutive matches and that should boost his confidence after a period where his form and fitness has been questioned.
