David de Gea saved a stoppage time penalty after Jesse Lingard broke his heart on his return to West Ham with a late strike in Manchester United’s 2-1 win on Sunday.

The Premier League encounter at the London Stadium appeared to be heading for a draw as the seconds passed before the action-packed final.

But a hard blow for West Ham boss David Moyes, who wanted to sign Lingard again after his successful loan last season, crowned himself the winner in the 89th minute.

It was still time for breathtaking drama when VAR decided United defender Luke Shaw had handled the ball in the area.

Moyes threw club captain Mark Noble to take the penalty kick, but De Gea jumped left to prevent it, sparking wild cheers from the United players when the final whistle went off seconds later.

It was the Spaniard’s first save after a penalty since April 2016, ending a series of 40 consecutive penalty kicks for the club and country without a save, including penalty shoot-outs.

Lingard’s goal was a welcome release for the English striker, whose pathetic back pass gave the Swiss Young Boys a 2-1 Champions League win against United in the middle of the week.

“It’s wrong on every level,” said Graeme Souness of Sky Sports. “He sat down maybe 20 minutes or half an hour and wasn’t ready to come. It was a bad penalty. It wasn’t a great salvation. I think David Moyes is going to be mad at himself and the manager has opened up a lot of criticism.

“It’s wrong. It’s a bad decision. He’s not warm enough to get in in the 94th minute, so he’s freezing.

“It doesn’t matter if he takes every penalty in training, you don’t get a player who is freezing after 90 minutes to take a penalty in this situation.”

The result lifts United to second place in the Premier League table after four wins in their first five games, level on points with Liverpool.


Chelsea extended their flying start to the season with a 3-0 win at London rivals Tottenham as both clubs paid emotional tribute to former striker Jimmy Greaves on Sunday.

Thiago Silva gave Chelsea the lead early in the second half before N’Golo Kante scored his first club goal since December 2019.

Antonio Rüdiger rounded off Chelsea’s dominant performance with an injury hit when Thomas Tuchel’s latest tactical masterclass paid out rich dividends.

Tuchel’s undefeated side are at the top of the Premier League after winning four of their first five games.

Chelsea have only conceded one league goal this season despite a difficult schedule with trips to Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal.

They face another test of their eligibility for the title next weekend when champions Manchester City visit Stamford Bridge.

“I was absolutely not satisfied with the first 45 minutes. We lacked will and energy, ”said Tuchel.

“A game like this in the Premier League, a derby at Tottenham, is not just about skillful play. It’s also about aggression and winning duels.

“We talked about it clearly at halftime. In the second half it was a very good performance and a deserved win. It was a very good response. ”Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo admitted that his team could not have any complaints after being outclassed.

“A lot went wrong. In the second half, Standard and Tor change the game. Chelsea have taken control and were the better team, ”said Nuno.

“It’s difficult. We know that we have a lot to improve.”


Brighton kept their surprisingly strong start, beating Leicester 2-1 and moving up to fourth place.

Neal Maupay scored a penalty in the first half and Brighton doubled their lead through Danny Welbeck early in the second half.

Jamie Vardy scored his 150th goal in all competitions for Leicester but was not enough to save a point.
