Manchester United were frustrated yet again at Old Trafford as they could only draw 1-1 with West Ham on Sunday in the Premier League, with manager Jose Mourinho being sent to the stands in the first half.

West Ham went ahead early after Diafra Sakho escaped his marker to head home Dimitri Payet’s free-kick, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted a deserved equaliser for United midway through the first half.

Mourinho was then sent to the stands for reacting angrily to a Paul Pogba booking and watched from the dugout as his side dominated proceedings but failed to find a winner.

Both clubs provided their lineups ahead of kick-off:

Old Trafford was stunned after just 90 seconds when Sakho converted Payet’s free-kick from the right after Jesse Lingard’s foul on the Frenchman.

Sakho’s movement in the box was excellent before his powerful header past David de Gea, but Ibrahimovic was culpable for some poor marking, per the Manchester Evening News’ Samuel Luckhurst:

Watching replay again, Ibrahimovic’s ‘marking’ is a joke. Lingard will get flak for daft foul but Ibrahimovic cost #mufc again there.

United dominated possession immediately after falling behind but did not carve out a shot on target until Juan Mata shot straight at Darren Randolph after Ibrahimovic set up the shot from the left.

Six minutes later, the Swedish striker equalised after a delightful ball over the top of the Hammers defence from Pogba that Ibrahimovic only needed to glance past Randolph.

Per the Times’ Henry Winter, it was a piece of real class from Pogba that set up the leveller and Ibrahimovic showed great awareness to head home, having had his back to goal:

Strong response. Ibrahimovic makes amends. 1-1. Header in after great Pogba ball. Wonderful vision and execution from Pogba.

A quick break involving Marcus Rashford and Ibrahimovic almost resulted in United’s second soon before the half-hour mark, but James Collins’ timely header prevented a chance on goal.

Following the clearance, Pogba was then booked for diving as he looked to start another attack, and referee Jon Moss sent Mourinho to the stands after he kicked a water bottle in frustration.

An even better chance presented itself to Rashford nine minutes from the break when he was through one-on-one with Randolph, but an outstretched boot from the West Ham goalkeeper kept out the effort.

Just before half-time, United were in again when Pogba found Ibrahimovic in space on the edge of the box. The Hammers were this time indebted to Angelo Ogbonna for a fantastic block.

Randolph then made an excellent save from Lingard’s shot following a dangerous United attack to ensure West Ham remained level at the break at Old Trafford.

The visitors started brightly after the break, carving out a couple of excellent chances to restore their lead, including an ambitious swinging free-kick from Payet that forced De Gea into a save.

However, United soon regained their dominance, forcing Randolph into saves from Pogba, Ibrahimovic and substitute Wayne Rooney.

The Red Devils had the ball in the net again 13 minutes from time, but it was correctly ruled out, per United:

77′ – Mkhitaryan’s shot comes back off the post and Lingard taps into an empty net, but the flag is up for offside. #MUFC #MUNWHU

With time ticking away, United’s urgency increased as they looked to avoid a fourth consecutive home draw in the Premier League.

But it was West Ham who had the best chance for a winner late on—Ashley Fletcher forced De Gea forced into making an excellent save—and both teams eventually shared the spoils in Manchester.
