Marko Arnautovic came back from injury to inspire West Ham United to a comfortable 3-1 win over Manchester United at the Olympic stadium.
Arnautovic missed the Hammers’ goalless affair with Chelsea last weekend but returned to play a decisive role in their hammering of José Mourinho’s United for their first win at home this season in the PL.
