United leapfrog the Hammers
United’s narrow win helped leapfrog West Ham United back into fourth, four points behind Chelsea – although the Blues have a game in hand.
It puts Rangnick’s men back in the driving seat, for now, with Arsenal, Wolves and Tottenham Hotspur all boasting spare games to catch up.
Regardless, holding onto the three points and returning to winning ways should fill United with a much-needed influx of confidence.
And with a hard-hitting game at Elland Road on the horizon on Sunday, it couldn’t have come at a better time.
