Ryan Giggs provided the winning goal that Manchester needed to register the win. They didn't look as sharp as their previous games until the left winger produced a blistering run to cut in from his position at left and bended a shot that went in to ensure United's points.
The Hammers looked more active as they searched for that elusive goal. Their best chance came when the ball was passed among the Hammer players until it ended on Carlton Cole's foot. He then tried to chip ball but his attempt was saved safely by Manchester goal keeper Edwin Van de Sar.� Australian defender Lucas Neil then unleashed a shot from the edge but was also saved.
Cole, whos fine form has not escaped managerFabio Capelo's eye earned him a spot in the England national soccer team the day before, was released by Jack Collison and eluding Rio Ferdinand. He then chipped the ball on the run but it went safely to Van de Sar's hands. Collison again was inside the United box but his pass to Cole ran behind the striker and dealt with by the visitors.
Carlos Tevez, a former West Ham player, started in
with Dimitar Berbatov in attack. He was heavily guarded though and was unable to create chances. Manchester for the time being did pass the ball around but were unable to breach the
which was as solid as theirs until Giggs' heroics. The West Ham fans did gave the Argentinian striker a loud applause when his name was called during the introductions in acknowledgement of his efforts as he helped the Hammers escape relegation two years ago. The controversy surrounding his transfer to West Ham has yet to be decided though. Other players who

were one time with the Hammers and were greeted with applause were Rio Ferdinand and Michael Carrick.
The loyal winger, who was given the captaincy for the game, turned back the hands of time when he produced his goal. He eluded the challenge of a diving Cole inside the West Ham box from the left side then curled his shot with his right foot through a phalanx of players to notch his first goal of the season.
A claim for a penalty by United was denied by referee Phil Dowd when winger Cristiano Ronaldo was tripped by Neil. The referee waved Ronaldo's appeals off.
With no scores and his clean sheet, Van de Sar has established a new British record for the longest time to not concede a goal which is now at 1,212 minutes. But his teammates deserve the accolade just as he does since it is the resolute Manchester United defense which is protecting Van de Sar from any chances for opposing teams to score.
The league shall take a temporary break to give way to the international friendly matches that shall be played this coming week. Manchester's next game shall be its FA Cup match against Derby on Sunday, February 15 at 3:30 pm GMT.
