Photos : Reds bounce back against West Ham

Photographers had plenty to focus on as Manchester United defeated West Ham in a game featuring three goals, one red card and three more debutants - Paddy McNair, Luke Shaw and Tom Thorpe.

The Reds faced stiff competition in a Hammers side fresh from victory over Liverpool last weekend, but it took just five minutes for Wayne Rooney to burst the Hammers' bubble, as the striker swept home Rafael's cross.

Following goals at either end for Robin van Persie and Diafra Sakho before the break, Rooney was dismissed during the second half to the surprise of those inside Old Trafford, resulting in a tense finish. 

Official club photographers John and Matt Peters were in attendance to capture all the action, as the hosts held on for all three points. Click on the image above to view a selection of the best match photos.
