Rio Ferdinand mocks his brother after Manchester United beat West Ham
Manchester United snatched the three points against West Ham thanks to a last-gasp Marcus Rashford strike in ‘Fergie time’.
The England international’s renaissance continued when he tapped home Edinson Cavani’s perfectly-weighted cross to blow the roof off Old Trafford.
Ralf Rangnick would have been delighted to see all three of his substitutes combine to clinch a crucial three points.
Anthony Martial played the pass into Cavani, who held his run and squared the ball to Rashford.
Usually so good at timing his runs and beating the offside trap, Old Trafford held its breath to see whether VAR deemed the Uruguayan was onside.
The technology agreed which brought a cauldron of noise around the Theatre of Dreams.
But despite VARs decision not everyone was happy and more so than Rio Ferdinand’s brother Anton.
The former West Ham centre back labelled VAR “inconsistent” and a “disgrace”.
But United’s former number five couldn’t resist mocking his brother with an ever so subtle reply on Twitter.
The injury time winner saw us leapfrog the Hammers and move into fourth place ahead of the international break.
However, both Tottenham and Arsenal will move above us if they win their games today.
Rio Ferdinand had already labelled United’s win against David Moyes’ side as a “big result”, but despite West Ham’s “solid performance”, the pundit and his brother had differing views on the game’s big decision.
Rangnick’s Reds don’t play until 4 February and after building some momentum with back-to-back Premier League wins, the German will be hoping to improve his side further with an extended period to work on things at Carrington.
