    Maybe Manchester United were more rattled by events outside the Boleyn Tavern than the pictures on board the team bus indicated. These showed players making light of the mayhem in the streets as their coach arrived at the ground. At one stage it looked as if the post-match celebration would have to be cancelled. What an embarrassment for the club that would have been. At least when the game started it showed Upton Park at its best.
    Slaven Bilic’s West Ham at their best, too. Twice during Sir Alex Ferguson’s time, Manchester United were denied the title here, and this was another massive slap for the visitors. It was pretty much all West Ham in the first half, from the 10th minute when they took the lead, in front of what regulars will remember as the old South Bank. The move was started by a quite magnificent pass by Aaron Cresswell, who picked out Manuel Lanzini on the left. He crossed and Diafra Sakho turned almost lazily and shot past De Gea. It seemed to happen in slow motion.
    As did Manchester United’s first half, which could have handed West Ham victory in little more than half an hour. After 20 minutes they simply fell apart defensively. Chris Smalling caught in the wrong half, Daley Blind playing West Ham on, and Andy Carroll suddenly with half the pitch to himself, running through, one on one. Problem. He didn’t look confident from that moment.
    His champions claim Carroll is so much more than a battering ram centre forward but he isn’t and this showed it. It was like watching a centre half getting a nose bleed placed in the same position. There was no finesse, no imagination, he ran forward and hit the ball straight, directly at De Gea. Carroll for England? Imagine if that was the chance, the one chance, against France.
