Marko Arnautovic has said that West Ham deserved to win their game against Manchester United this afternoon because everybody did their jobs and tried to win the game.
Having lost four games on the spin at the start of the season, West Ham have returned to form in recent weeks and capped that off with a fine 3-1 victory over a disappointing Manchester United side at the London Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.
Felipe Anderson opened the scoring for the Hammers after just six minutes, before Victor Lindelof diverted the ball past his own goalkeeper before half-time. United did pull a goal back through Marcus Rashford but quickly conceded a third, with Arnautovic latching onto a sublime through ball from Mark Noble to restore the two-goal cushion and round off what was a comfortable afternoon for the Hammers.
Speaking after the game, the Austrian forward said that he thought he and his teammates thoroughly deserved to walk away with the three points.
“I doesn’t matter how they set up, our game was to try to win, we have to do our job and we did it excellently, and that is why we deserved to win, Arnautovic told BT Sport.
“I think I’m there to help the team, to hold the ball and score goals. I’ll try to do everything possible.
“I have nothing to say [on Mourinho]. I look at my team, whatever the other team is doing is not our stuff.”
