Highlights: West Ham United 2-4 Manchester United

 

West Ham United fell to a 4-2 home defeat at the hands of Manchester United in the Barclays FA Women's Super League on Sunday. 

A spirited and entertaining encounter saw the away side go 2-0 up inside 23 minutes, thanks to finishes from Alessia Russo and Tobin Heath, before Emily van Egmond scored her first West Ham goal with a towering header to half the deficit. 

Russo's second, just before half-time, restored the Red Devils' two-goal advantage, but Rachel Daly's impeccable lob on 87 minutes gave the Hammers hope of completing an incredible comeback late on.

However, Christen Press' volley not long after condemned the Irons to defeat at Dagenham & Redbridge Stadium.
