“If you score in the last second of the game that is the best type of wins, a clean sheet,” Ralf Rangnick told Sky Sports after the victory against West Ham.
“I think in the end we deserved to win. It takes patience to play West Ham. A few moments at the end I wished we would have passed the ball instead of shooting from wherever.
“Bearing in mind we played a few days ago against Brentford, the team looked physically good. We knew it would take patience, the way we played defensively, won balls back, I was really happy with that.
“I am very pleased the three subs prepared the goal and scored the goal. All were involved. That makes it even more important.
“I would love to have those two points from Villa Park, but with 17 points now we are pleased.”
Man United have beaten West Ham in a six-pointer at Old Trafford.
Rangnick’s substitutions worked miracles today, as the three players he brought on in the second half (Martial, Cavani, and Rashford) combined for Marcus’ match-winning goal.
The victory takes United to fourth place, ahead of West Ham, Spurs, and Arsenal.
