I was not confident going into this fixture at all. There is absolutely no way United will finish the league season having lost only two games and our recent record against West Ham has been dismal. Added to this, we have only won once in our last eleven visits to London and the Hammers were in a pretty rich vein of form.
But they did it again. Our team selection of old heads and former West Ham players was utterly inspired and whilst United were more dogged than dazzling we still had a proper go at attacking the game. Giggsâ..s goal was just reward for some lovely play from Scholes and Carrick is starting to quietly boss games in an unshowy and highly effective manner. We may look back on this as one of the major results of the season.
