Man United Players Mobbed David De Gea After Saving A Penalty Since 2016 As They Beat Westham (Watch)

Man United Players Mobbed David de Gea After Saving A Penalty Since 2016 As They Beat Westham (Watch)

David De Gea saved a penalty in the fifth minute of injury time taken by West Ham substitute Mark Noble, who was sent on purely to take the kick, as Manchester United hold on for a 2-1 victory at the London Stadium.

A penalty was awarded via a VAR check after Jarrod Bowen saw his cross strike the outstretched arm of Luke Shaw.

Minutes earlier the failure of West Ham to sign last season’s loan star Jesse Lingard came back to haunt them as the England striker curled an unstoppable curling strike into the top corner in the 89th minute.

The Hammers went in front on the half-hour mark when Said Benrahma aimed a shot from 20 yards to David De Gea’s left only for it to be deflected by Raphael Varane just inside the goalkeeper’s right-hand post.

The lead lasted just five minutes before Bruno Fernandes’ fine inswinging cross from the left saw Cristiano Ronaldo beat the offside trap and though Lukas Fabianski saved the initial attempt on the volley, he could do nothing to stop the rebound nestling in the goal behind him as the Real Madrid legend scored for the third game in succession.

The Red Devils were overall worthy victors with Fernandes when the game was goalless seeing a shot tipped onto the post by Fabianski, who also raced from his line to deny a great chance for Ronaldo in the second half.

Had West Ham grabbed an equaliser United would have been particularly sickened as the Portuguese legend went to ground claiming a penalty three times in the latter stages of the game but on all occasions referee Martin Atkinson waved away his appeals.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘Won’t Give Up’ After Liverpool Shamelessly Thrashed Manchester United In A 5-0 Game

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘won’t give up’ after Manchester United thrashing by Liverpool

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has “come too far to give up now” despite overseeing Sunday’s 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Mohamed Salah claimed a hat-trick while Naby Keita and Diogo Jota also scored in the Reds’ dominant win.

Solskjaer said the loss is his “darkest day” as a manager but will carry on.

“We know we are rock bottom, we can’t feel any worse than this. Let’s see where we take it,” he told Sky Sports.

“I have come too far, we have come too far as a group. We are too close to give up now.”

Asked how he will pick the players up, he added: “It is going to be a difficult one. The players will be low but there’s loads of characters.

The victory was Liverpool’s biggest win at Old Trafford in their history and set a number of unwanted landmarks as far as Manchester United were concerned.

It was their biggest loss in this fixture since October 1895, when Liverpool beat them 7-1 at Anfield, and was the first time they have lost by a margin of five or more goals at Old Trafford without scoring themselves since 1955.

Many Manchester United fans left at half time with the home side 4-0 down.

The home side conceded only once more after the break but also had Paul Pogba sent off just 15 minutes after he had come on as a substitute.

“It is not easy to say something apart from it is the darkest day I have had leading these players,” added Solskjaer, who took over as manager in 2018.

“We were not good enough individually and as a team – you can’t give a team like Liverpool those chances, but unfortunately we did.

“The whole performance was not good enough. We created openings, they had chances and they have been clinical. The third goal decided the game.”

Real Madrid Win Fourth Consecutive El Clasico As Alaba Scores In Victory Against Barcelona

Real Madrid Win Fourth Consecutive El Clasico As Alaba Scores In Victory Against Barcelona

Real Madrid beat Barcelona in a new-look El Clasico to go top of La Liga and leave Ronald Koeman’s side down in eighth in the table.

It was the first Clasico without Barca icon Lionel Messi or Real legend Sergio Ramos – who both joined Paris St-Germain in the summer – since 2004.

David Alaba started and finished a counter attack for the first and Lucas Vazquez got a second in added time.

Sergio Aguero scored his first Barca goal but it was almost the last kick.

Alaba’s goal was the best of the game. The former Bayern Munich defender won the ball from Barca striker Memphis Depay on the edge of his box before starting a counter-attack.

He finished it off by running onto Rodrygo’s pass before slamming a shot across home keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen into the far corner.

It was his first goal for Real Madrid, who he joined in the summer, on his El Clasico debut.

The final two goals came in injury time with Vazquez tapping in after Marco Asensio’s shot was saved by Ter Stegen.

Substitute Aguero buried Sergino Dest’s cross, in what was only Barcelona’s second shot on target, but the final whistle went seconds later.

Pressure grows on Koeman

Barca boss Ronald Koeman said he could not be under more pressure going into this game.

Well, he actually is now. They remain eighth, as close to 14th-placed Elche as new leaders Real.

Barcelona, in front of over 86,000 fans, put in a limp performance – with Real keeper Thibaut Courtois only making one save all afternoon.

It is a new-look Barca, with 17-year-old Gavi the youngest El Clasico starter since 1941 – but he had limited impact.

Koeman is only the second manager to lose his first three Clasicos as Barcelona boss – after Irishman Patrick O’Connell, who lost four between 1935 and 1940.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Real did not even have to play especially well to win at the home of their fiercest rivals and it is hard to imagine this Real team winning a Clasico against any other Barca team of the past 15 years.

Madrid have won four consecutive Clasicos for the first time since they managed seven in a row in the 1960s.

Unless something changes – and there is surely every chance they will face a different manager in the next meeting – they could break that run.

Qatar World Cup Final Venue 98.5 Per Cent Complete

Qatar World Cup Final Venue 98.5 Per Cent Complete

Work on Qatar’s Lusail Stadium, which will host the 2022 World Cup final, is nearly complete, an official said on Thursday, with only systems checks and commissions left to tackle.

“We are at approximately 98.5 per cent completion,” Tamim El Abed, project manager for the stadium, told AFP in an interview.

“The structural works, the civil works, the steel works, the roof works are all 100 per cent complete.

“The remaining 1.5 per cent is the testing and commissioning of the multiple systems needed for the operation of the building.”

El Abed said that the stadium can host 85 000 or 86 000 spectators.

“Eighty thousand of those would have a totally unobstructed view of the field of play,” he said.

The Lusail Stadium is about 20 kilometres from the capital Doha and will host a number of matches during the tournament, including the final.

It is one of eight stadiums that Qatar has designated for the World Cup, which will be the first ever in the Middle East.

Lusail was designed to mimic the glow of a lantern, with openings in its curved steel exterior facade.

It has 3 354 rooms and 40 gate entrances, according to El Abed.

“The stands and the terraces were designed in a permanent fashion, but there is a plan possibly for reuse of the interior spaces post-World Cup,” he added.

“We are proud of the fact that the stadium of this capacity has been designed from scratch and built from scratch with Fifa technical requirements in hand and in consideration right from the beginning,” he added, referring to the world football’s governing body.

Qatar has faced criticism for its treatment of migrant workers, many of whom are involved in preparations for the World Cup, with campaigners accusing employers of exploitation and forcing labourers to work in dangerous conditions.

However, Qatari authorities insist they have done more than any country in the region to improve worker welfare and say they have “always been transparent about the health and safety of workers”.
