West Ham vs Manchester United LIVE: Premier League result, final score and reaction today

Mark Noble came off the bench only to miss a stoppage-time penalty as Manchester United snatched a dramatic 2-1 victory at the London Stadium.

Club captain Noble, West Ham’s Mr Reliable from the spot, was sent on by manager David Moyes to take the penalty after Luke Shaw handled in the area.

The long-serving midfielder, who retires at the end of the season, had not missed a spot-kick since December 2016, but he was denied a sentimental winner by United goalkeeper David De Gea.

It was a hugely dramatic end to a thrilling match which saw Jesse Lingard return to haunt the club for whom he starred on loan last season.

In a bitter blow for West Ham and David Moyes, who tried to re-sign Lingard over the summer, the England forward curled in what turned out to be the winner two minutes from time.

Cristiano Ronaldo had earlier scored his fourth goal in three matches since returning to United, cancelling out Said Benrahma’s deflected opener for the hosts.

Defeat was tough on West Ham, who showed no signs of fatigue from their Thursday night exertions in Europe as they went at United from the off.

Benrahma robbed Harry Maguire in the area and pulled the ball back for Jarrod Bowen 10 yards out, but his shot lacked power and was blocked by Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Moments later a glorious cross-field move from the Hammers culminated in another chance for Bowen, whose deflected shot was kept out by the boot of De Gea, with Tomas Soucek firing the rebound over.

Ronaldo’s first glimpse of goal came midway through the first half, with a couple of stepovers gaining him a yard on Vladimir Coufal before shooting straight at Lukasz Fabianski.

United seemed to have weathered the early storm and almost took the lead through Bruno Fernandes, Fabianski getting the smallest of touches to tip his effort on to a post.

But moments later West Ham went ahead when Benrahma’s shot from the edge of the area took a huge deflection off Raphael Varane to wrongfoot De Gea and roll into the net.

The lead lasted only four minutes before Ronaldo struck, guiding a Fernandes cross into the chest of Fabianski and reacting quickest to tuck in the rebound.

Fabianski got down well to deny Ronaldo a second before Nikola Vlasic skied a chance for the Hammers as a breathless first half came to an end.

West Ham had a major let-off at the start of the second when a wayward pass from Pablo Fornals allowed Fernandes to slip Ronaldo in, but he was denied by Fabianski.

Ronaldo felt he should have had a penalty when he went down under Coufal’s challenge in the area, but referee Martin Atkinson thought otherwise.

The Portugal star was also denied by a timely block from the impressive Kurt Zouma as he looked to get on the end of another Fernandes cross.

Lingard came on as a 73rd-minute substitute and 15 minutes later found the top corner with a fine curler.

When Shaw handled Andriy Yarmolenko’s cross to concede a VAR-awarded penalty the script was written for Noble, but De Gea tore it up with a diving save to secure the points.

19:00 , Michael Jones

Thomas Tuchel’s half-time intervention allowed Chelsea to show their Premier League title challenging credentials with an impressive 3-0 win at Tottenham.

After being second best in the first half, Tuchel introduced N’Golo Kante and switched formation and it paid immediate dividends as Thiago Silva and the Frenchman both scored in the opening 12 minutes of the second half, with Antonio Rudiger adding a late third.

Reaction from Nuno Espirito Santo

18:56 , Michael Jones

Tottenham boss, Nuno Espirito Santo says he was pleased with his team’s first half performance but says there are ‘lots of things to improve’ on. He said:

There were a lot of things that went wrong. Let’s start with the first half - I think it was a good game, competitive. We were on the the front foot, started pressing high, creating problems and had chances.

“In the second half, the set piece and goal changes the game. Then it becomes much harder, the game totally changed and Chelsea took control and were the better team in the second half.

“It’s difficult, but I’m proud of the first half and of all the game because we had troubles in team and the players went to their limits.

“We knew through the game that we would have problems, but the boys went and tried find solutions and tried to give energy with the subs. But it was a tough opponent in front of us.

“We know we have a lot of things to improve and are working to improve.”

Reaction from Thomas Tuchel

18:50 , Michael Jones

When asked in his post-match conference if he thought the game was one of two-halves Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel agreed saying:

Yes it was, you’re absolutely right. I was absolutely not happy with the first 45 minutes. There were individual performances which were great in the first half from Kepa and Thiago Silva. Even more players were good but in general we lacked intent, energy and relentless in duels and 50-50 balls.

“I had the feeling we wanted to impress by pure skills but in derbies like this it is not always about just skills. It is about aggression, winning duels and performing better as a team. We spoke clearly about it at half time. In the second half it was a very good performance and a deserved win in the second half. It was a very good reaction so I am happy with the performance in the second half.”

Thiago Silva, N’Golo Kante and Antonio Rudiger sink Spurs

18:43 , Michael Jones

Played out in the shadow of a legend, who illuminated not only Tottenham and Chelsea but English football in its entirety, bitter rivals were brought together on a day of sombreness but also in celebration of the great Jimmy Greaves, whose passing on Sunday morning shone more glory on this fixture than 90 minutes could ever dictate on the pitch below.

That fact should be of no disservice to the breathless and exhilarating nature of this contest, though, as Chelsea added yet another layer of credence to their title ambitions, repelling an impassioned tide of Tottenham momentum before striking cunningly and clinically in the second half to continue their unbeaten start to the season in imperious style.

Jimmy Greaves scored goals for fun, literally. Yet while the baggy-shorted Eastender played his football with the jaunty air of an eternal schoolboy, the gleeful audacity which was central to his enduring popular appeal could not mask the ruthlessness which made him, arguably, the deadliest marksman in the history of British soccer.

Kane and Spurs struggle

18:36 , Michael Jones

Harry Kane has failed to score in his first four Premier League appearances of a season for the first time since 2015-16, with the England striker attempting just four shots in this current campaign.

On top of that Spurs have lost consecutive Premier League matches by a 3+ goal margin for the first time since their opening two games of the 2011-12 campaign.

At 36 years and 362 days Thiago Silva has become the second-oldest Chelsea player to score in the Premier League behind only Didier Drogba, who scored against Leicester City aged 37 years and 49 days in April 2015.

N’Golo Kanté has scored his first goal in 49 Premier League appearances, last netting against Manchester City in November 2019; three of his last four goals in the competition have come from outside the box.

Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Spurs puts them back above Liverpool at the top of the table, on goal difference only. The Blues join Liverpool and Manchester United on 13-points after that wonderful second half display.

For all their attacking talent Chelsea scored two of their three goals with defenders today. They look like a very impressive unit.

Full-time: Tottenham 0 - 3 Chelsea

18:23 , Michael Jones

90+4 mins: It’s been a superb display from Chelsea in the second half. Thomas Tuchel made a personnel change at half-time after Spurs arguably had the better first half.

N’Golo Kante came on and bolstered Chelsea’s midfield. That ensured they controlled more possession and when Thiago Silva netted early in the second half they never looked back. Kante himself found the second goal before Antonio Rudiger put the icing on the cake two minutes from time.

GOAL! Tottenham 0 - 3 Chelsea (Rudiger, 90+2’)⚽️

18:21 , Michael Jones

90+2 mins: Great finish! Tottenham deal with a corner but don’t work the ball far enough away. Timo Werner brings it back down the right before cutting the ball into the middle of the box. Antonio Rudiger falls back to meet the pass and then slots it brilliantly into the far bottom corner.

90 mins: Four minutes of added time to play.

Tottenham 0 - 2 Chelsea

18:18 , Michael Jones

88 mins: Thiago Silva’s two shots on target for Chelsea is the most by any player in this match. He’s been given the man of the match award which is fair enough. In the first half he dealt with Spurs expertly and then gave Chelsea the lead with the opening goal.

Tottenham 0 - 2 Chelsea

18:15 , Michael Jones

85 mins: Chance! Chelsea work the ball around the edge of Tottenham’s box and wait for the perfect opening. Rudiger pushes up the pitch to provide another option and he’s given the ball. He swings in a cross and finds Lukaku as the striker nips in front of Dier. Lukaku gets to the ball and powers it at goal but Lloris is in behind it and denies him a goal.

Tottenham 0 - 2 Chelsea

18:11 , Michael Jones

81 mins: Tottenham are done. Chelsea seem to have stepped up another gear. Alonso wins it wide on the left wing. He plays it up to Werner who knocks it inside to Kante. Kante slips it into the box for Werner whose shot is blocked by Lloris. The ball bounces out to Alonso and Lloris is quickly up to stop that shot too.

But Chelsea aren’t done. A cross comes out to Azpilicueta who heads it back into the middle. Werner is waiting for it to arrive but Lloris gets there first and flaps it away. Fantastic work from the Tottenham goalkeeper!

Tottenham 0 - 2 Chelsea

18:07 , Michael Jones

78 mins: Chance! Chelsea could have had a few more in this half. They hit Spurs on the counter-attack and leave Romelu Lukaku to run at the two centre-backs. Eric Dier over commits and Lukaku sweeps past him. He gets into the box and plays in Timo Werner but the German gets the ball stuck under his own feet and doesn’t get the shot away before he’s brought down.

Save! Great work from Hugo Lloris!

18:04 , Michael Jones

Tottenham 0 - 2 Chelsea

75 mins: Another corner comes swinging in to the near post from Marcos Alonso. Thiago Silva once again beats Dele Alli to the ball and manages to get a good chunk off the ball. He directs it at goal and forces Hugo Lloris into a sharp reactionary save to tip the ball over the bar.

Tottenham 0 - 2 Chelsea

18:01 , Michael Jones

72 mins: Inside the last 20 minutes now and Spurs need a goal. Son floats a free kick deep into the Chelsea box but Kepa Arrizabalaga leaps in front of Dier to pluck the ball out of the air.

He lands and waves to the medical team about having cramp much to the annoyance of the Tottenham fans.

Tottenham 0 - 2 Chelsea

17:58 , Michael Jones

69 mins: Kante attempts to play Azpilicueta into the box as the right-back makes a run inside. He’s beaten to the ball though and Spurs clear their lines.

17:53 , Michael Jones

66 mins: Kane drops deep to get hold of the ball and plays a nice one-two with Son to work it up the pitch. That’s the first sign of their relationship clicking into gear as Kane brings the ball just inside the box and lets fly with a low shot to Kepa’s right. The Chelsea goalkeeper sees it all the way and gets low to smother the shot.

Tottenham 0 - 2 Chelsea

17:51 , Michael Jones

63 mins: Rudiger heads a cross into the middle out of his own box but Tottenham regain possession and give it to Tanguy Ndombele on the edge of the area. He goes for goal but leans back on his effort and spoons it over the crossbar.

Nuno does makes some changes. Oliver Skipp and Bryan Gil come on to replace Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso.

Tottenham 0 - 2 Chelsea

17:48 , Michael Jones

60 mins: Chelsea’s second goal will probably end up going down as an Eric Dier own goal due to the size of the deflection but the Blues won’t care. They’re two-goals to the good and look really comfortable.

Kante on for Mount has nullified Tottenham completely. Nuno Espirito Santo needs to come up with another plan. Plan A isn’t working anymore.

GOAL! Tottenham 0 - 2 Chelsea (Kante, 57’)⚽️

17:46 , Michael Jones

57 mins: That’s so unlucky! Spurs try to play out from the back but Mateo Kovacic wins the ball. He gives it to N’Golo Kante who comes inside and hits one from range.

Off the line! Alonso needs to score here!

17:43 , Michael Jones

Tottenham 0 - 1 Chelsea

54 mins: Chelsea should be two up! Havertz carries the ball down the left wing and whips a cross into the box. It goes over Lukaku but comes to Azpilicueta on the far side. He cuts it back into the middle where Alonso arrives wide open. His first time shot beats Lloris but gets cleared off the line by Eric Dier!

Tottenham 0 - 1 Chelsea

17:40 , Michael Jones

51 mins: It’s game on now for Spurs. They started the match well but Chelsea have swung the momentum firmly their way. Tottenham have to respond, preferably with the next goal, but it won’t be easy against this well drilled Chelsea side.

GOAL! Tottenham 0 - 1 Chelsea (Thiago, 49’)⚽️

17:37 , Michael Jones

49 mins: That didn’t take long! Chelsea win a corner and that Marcos Alonso swings into the middle of the box. Thiago Silva makes has move from the front edge and runs into the middle. He jumps in front of Dele Alli, wins the header and knocks it into the far bottom corner. Great finish.

17:36 , Michael Jones

48 mins: Chance! This would have been an incredible goal. Thiago Silva hits a pinpoint ball over the top as Marcos Alonso drifts in behind the Tottenham right-back. The ball drops to him in the box and he volleys it at Hugo Lloris only for thr goalkeeper to push the ball up and over the crossbar!

Tottenham 0 - 0 Chelsea

17:34 , Michael Jones

Second half: Thomas Tuchel has made a change at half-time with N’Golo Kante coming on to replace Mason Mount. Spurs get the back back underway. Will we see some goals in the second 45 minutes?

“It’s always the outcome that decides the headline that we’ll see,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Thursday.

And so Jesse Lingard’s sublime winner, followed by David de Gea’s strong penalty save from Mark Noble in the dramatic dying embers at London Stadium, ensures it’s all Glory, Glory Man United who defeated West Ham 2-1 earlier today:

Half-time: Tottenham 0 - 0 Chelsea

17:20 , Michael Jones

45+2 mins: Nothing to separate the teams then as they go into the break. Tottenham started lightning quick with a high press from their front three. They had the better of the game for around 25 minutes before Chelsea wrestled the momentum back after a decent amount of possession.

Clear cut chances in front of goal have been hard to come by but both teams have had their moments from outside the box. It’s been a close-fought match so far and that looks set to continue in the second half.

Tottenham 0 - 0 Chelsea

17:17 , Michael Jones

17:10 , Michael Jones

36 mins: Hugo Lloris launches a long ball up to Son Heung-min but bounces off him under pressure from Thiago Silva and there’s nobody close by to pick up the loose ball in midfield.

Spurs are trying to target Thiago Silva one-on-one with Son so far the Chelsea centre-back has been up to the task.

Tottenham 0 - 0 Chelsea

17:05 , Michael Jones

33 mins: The Spurs fans don’t like that. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg releases the ball in the middle of the pitch but Mount has a nibble after the ball has gone. Hojbjerg goes down and wins a free kick.

Spurs send it up to Lo Celso who slots a lovely ball into the right side of the box. Son beats Alonso to the ball as Kepa Arrizabalaga comes flying off his line. Son gets there first and pokes it at goal only for Kepa to get a hand to it and stop the shot.

Tottenham 0 - 0 Chelsea

17:02 , Michael Jones

16:57 , Michael Jones

27 mins: Chelsea are starting to find a foothold in the game now. Lukaku is getting plenty of service and this time he holds the ball up on the edge of the box before laying it off to Andreas Christensen.

Tottenham 0 - 0 Chelsea

16:47 , Michael Jones

15 mins: Chance! Chelsea should do better here! The Blues break on the counter as Lukuku plays Mason Mount in behind. He drives itno the box and returns it to Lukaku. Everyone expects him to shoot but he gives it back to Mount who’s tackled before getting a shot away.

Tottenham 0 - 0 Chelsea

16:44 , Michael Jones

12 mins: Mateo Kovacic collides into Emerson Royal and clatters him in the face as both players fall to the ground. It’s a completely unintentional incident but Emerson’s taken a foot to the face there and the game stops to make sure he’s okay.

Tottenham 0 - 0 Chelsea

16:42 , Michael Jones

Tottenham 0 - 0 Chelsea

16:37 , Michael Jones

6 mins: Spurs win a free kick just outside the Chelsea penalty area and it’s prime territory for Harry Kane. He does take the set piece and drills it into Mateo Kovacic. The ball bounces off the Chelsea midfielder and goes behind for a corner that Chelsea then deal with.

Tottenham 0 - 0 Chelsea

16:35 , Michael Jones

3 mins: Chelsea are put under pressure early on as Son Heung-min gets free on the left side. His cross is sent across the box and gets taken up at the back post.

Nuno Espirito Santo seeks Tottenham approval with Chelsea test set to reveal intent

16:25 , Michael Jones

There are no shortcuts in football management. No Konami code to bash to get ahead of the competition. For a new manager, the process of developing an understanding of the players at their disposal and getting fans onside with their style of play takes time, even with the weekend-to-midweek programme at the top-level. The most restrictive factor is that patience is a scarce commodity.

There are, however, “accelerators”, if you can call them that. These are marquee fixtures where positive results early in your tenure grant you an invaluable combination of leeway and belief. This weekend, Nuno Espirito Santo has his second of three within his first six league matches as Tottenham Hotspur manager.

Chelsea have only conceded one goal in the Premier League so far this season, their lowest total at this stage for 11 years.

They could win six successive London derbies away from home for the first time in their history. It has only been done by one other top-flight club: Arsenal, between 1988-1989 and again in 2013-2014.

The Blues’ defeat at Aston Villa in May is their only loss in 11 Premier League away matches under Thomas Tuchel.

Tottenham vs Chelsea

16:21 , Michael Jones

Tottenham are vying to open their campaign with three wins at home for the first time since 2002 and they could equal the club record of 12 points after five Premier League fixtures.

If they keep a clean sheet Spurs will have kept a shutout in each of their opening three home matches of a league campaign for the first time.

They’re in good form at home too having won eight of their last 10 league games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, keeping six clean sheets.

Tottenham vs Chelsea

16:19 , Michael Jones

Tottenham have conceded a club record 103 Premier League goals against Chelsea and they have won only seven of the 58 Premier League meetings between the sides with 20 draws and 31 defeats.

57 mins: The commentators are starting to talk about European night fatigue concerning West Ham. Since the restart they’ve not looked like the same team. Manchester United have dominated possession and penned West Ham into their own half.

Or maybe not. Rice moves the ball clear and slots it up to Fornals. He plays Bowen into the box on the counter-attack and the forward gets to the ball first. He cuts inside and shoots but has the effort blocked.

The Hammers just reminding Man Utd how dangerous they still are.
