However, United could have been two or three goals up we're it not for some poor referee decisions which almost cost the team.
For instance Ronaldo was fouled twice in the box. In the first circumstance, the United number seven came face to face with Westham right back Vladimir Coufal.
Coufal, pulled out a leg which tripped the forward. An incensed Ronaldo looked up at referee Mart Atkinson who waved play on without even consulting the VAR.
In the second instance, Ronaldo was tripped by Zouma, who clearly failed to win the ball. In addition to that, no corner was awarded to United.
Hence, more questions were raised about who between Zouma and Ronaldo, had won the ball.
In the dying moments, the referee awarded Westham a penalty which was promptly saved by goalkeeper David Degea. Here are some reactions from fans to the referee.
