West Ham picked up a major 1-0 victory over Manchester United at the London Stadium and have made a strong case for Premier League survival.
The Hammers opened the scoring after 27 minutes thanks to Said Benrahma’s weak shot, which was met by a howler from United goalkeeper De Gea.
The Spain international was somehow caught off guard as he lunged to his right and still saw the ball ending up in his own net even though he got a touch on it.
The East Londoners came close to a second but had two goals overruled.
The hosts thought they doubled their lead with Jarrod Bowen on 51 minutes but the referee deemed Michail Antonio fouled De Gea in the build-up.
Tomas Soucek then headed the ball past the United keeper in the 73rd minute but the midfielder was caught offside by the linesman.
West Ham superstar Declan Rice is “buzzing” after the “massive” victory over Manchester United.
Rice told BT Sport: “Obviously it’s massive, the significance is massive.
“The lads, they gave it absolutely everything, to win this one we knew it was big.
“Some things go for you in football and that was one of those things. Yeah, I’m buzzing.”

Man United Always Bounce Back
The Red Devils spoiled their chance to go into third place after falling 1-0 to Brighton during the midweek after conceding a 99th-minute goal. This season could now go either way for Man United.
A third-place finish is still an option for Erik ten Hag’s men as they are just two points back from Newcastle United, but fifth place is now an increasing concern, with Liverpool winning six straight league games.
Thankfully for United fans, their side has shown they can bounce back from a poor result this season. Asides from match day two, the Red Devils have followed up every loss this season with three points.
It even seems this trend is capable of overcoming United’s poor road form this season. The Red Devils have just one loss at home and a +20 goal difference. On the road, they have seven losses and a -11 goal differential. That said, on the three occasions where Man United lost their first match of two consecutive road games, they won the second.
Despite a positive start at the London Stadium. United were unable to snatch the initiative, as David de Gea’s blunder allowed Said Benrahma’s shot to sneak past him, for West Ham’s opener.
The Hammers looked to step up their advantage after the break, with Tomas Soucek denied by de Gea, and Michail Antonio seeing a goal ruled out.
United struggled to break through a dogged home defence in the closing stages, as the top four race bursts back into life, and David Moyes moves closer to Premier League safety.
West Ham’s trust in Moyes rewarded
Moyes is one of two managers — alongside Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper — to avoid the sack as a Premier League bottom half manager.
The Hammers have relied on the Scotsman’s experience to steer them away from Premier League relegation and they are on the brink of achieving that, after beating United.
37 points on the board opens up a seven-point gap above the relegation zone, and whilst mathematical safety is not assured, Moyes knows his plan is reaping rewards.
“We showed huge character, I thought we played well and they also had to defend well at times. Overall I thought the performance was excellent tonight”, he said at full time.
“The result leaves us much better off, as it is much harder for other teams to catch us, they’ll find it very difficult to get the points needed to do that.
“The number isn’t confirmed (that it keeps you in the Premier League) so we have to look forward to the next game and try and pick up more points.”
