MANCHESTER UNITED hopes of a top-four finish took a hit on Tuesday as they were beaten 3-2 by WEST HAM UNITED in the final match to be played at Upton Park..
Diafra Sakho put the Hammers ahead on 10 minutes when he found the bottom corner from inside the area after good combination play down the left-wing by Aaron Cresswell and Manuel Lanzini.
Euro 2016 hopeful Andy Carroll had a golden opportunity to put West Ham two ahead but missed his one-on-one after being put through on goal.
Moments later, Michail Antonio had the ball in the back of the United net but his celebrations were cut short after the linesman ruled the cross had gone out of play.
A long kick downfield by David de Gea eventually found Juan Mata on the right of the box, whose early ball across allowed Anthony Martial to tap in an equaliser from close range on 50 minutes.
The French forward found the back of the net for the second time on 71 minutes, tucking in his shot at the near-post after rounding Antonio.
But the former Nottingham Forest winger made amends minutes later, heading past De Gea after Dimitri Payet’s free-kick was blocked at the first attempt.
With 10 minutes to go, West Ham went ahead for the final time as Winston Reid headed in Payet’s cross to send the jubilant Hammers fans home happy.
Goal : D. Sakho 10′, M. Antonio 76′, W. Reid 80′, A. Martial 51′, 72′
