Man United’s problem extends beyond skill after West Ham defeat

After the final whistle, the lower portion of the away end was nearly deserted, a scene that Manchester United fans are all too familiar with this season. The team suffered their 13th loss of the season, surpassing last season’s total already. West Ham capitalized on their victory over United two days before Christmas, pushing them into the top six in the league.
United struggled to keep up with West Ham, lacking motivation and drive. Their inability to produce goals has left them in a bleak eighth place in the table. West Ham, however, celebrated a win that pushed them into the European places.
The game was slow and uneventful in the first half, but in the second half, West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen and Mohammed Kudus delivered the goals that secured their victory. The pressure is mounting on Manchester United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, as the team’s struggles continue. At the final whistle, a notable lack of acknowledgment from player Marcus Rashford towards the loyal fans in the stands showcased the lack of dedication and professionalism that has plagued Manchester United this season.
