Manchester United snatched the three points against West Ham thanks to a late Marcus Rashford goal in the ‘Fergie period’.

The England international’s renaissance continued when he found Edinson Cavani’s perfectly weighted cross to blast the Old Trafford roof.

Ralf Rangnick would have been happy if all three of his substitutes had scored the crucial three points together.

Old Trafford are usually so good at timing their runs and overcoming the offside trap that Old Trafford held their breath to see if VAR thought the Uruguayan was on the side.

But despite VAR’s decision, not everyone was happy, and even more so than Rio Ferdinand’s brother Anton.

The former West Ham centre-back called VAR “inconsistent” and a “shame”.

But United’s former number five couldn’t resist taunting his brother with a reply, no matter how subtle, on Twitter.

The stoppage-time winner saw us skip the Hammers and move up to fourth before the international break.

However, both Tottenham and Arsenal will move above us if they win their games today.

Rio Ferdinand had already called United’s win over David Moyes’ side a “big result” but despite West Ham’s “solid performance”, the pundit and his brother had differing views on the game’s big decision.

Rangnick’s Reds don’t play until February 4 and after the German has built some momentum with back-to-back Premier League wins, the German is hoping to further improve his side with an extended spell of work at Carrington.
