The Hammers gave a truly brilliant account of themselves against the Red Devils in the Premier League clash at the Boleyn Ground earlier this evening.
The London outfit took the lead against United four minutes into the second half when Cheikhou Kouyate found the target with a stumble volley.
However, West Ham had to settle for a 1-1 draw as Daley Blind equalised in the third minute of injury time for the Manchester outfit, who ended the game with 10 men after Luke Shaw was sent off.
Sam Allardyce’s players put in a very good shift against United, and the West Ham fans were disappointed with the late goal that they conceded.
Club chairman Gold was delighted with the display of West Ham players, and has underlined how much the club have move progressed.

West Ham are having a very good season, and there are genuine hopes that they could qualify for Europe next season, at least for the Europa League.
United were probably favourites to win at the Boleyn Ground, but the home team showed that they can take them without fear.
West Ham had only 41% of the possession, but they had 13 shots of which six were on target and earned nine corners.
The draw means that West Ham are now eighth in the Premier League table with 37 points from 24 matches, seven points behind fourth-placed United.
