Jose Mourinho’s week went from bad to worse after just six minutes at the London Stadium when Felipe Anderson flicked the ball home from close range to give West Ham the lead.
Mourinho had kept his word and named Paul Pogba in Manchester United’s starting line-up.
Pogba’s future has been the subject of yet more speculation this week after Mourinho took the vice-captaincy off him before footage emerged of a heated training-ground conversation between the pair.
Elsewhere, striker Marcus Rashford returned from suspension on the bench but Alexis Sanchez was not in the squad.
Marko Arnautovic led West Ham’s attack after missing two matches with a knee injury.

Penny for your thoughts, gents?
West Ham have improved significantly in recent weeks by beating Everton and holding Chelsea to a goalless draw in their last two league matches, while they enter this game after hitting eight past Macclesfield in a midweek EFL Cup tie.
Mourinho also shuffles his pack following the EFL Cup clash and makes four changes to the team that drew 1-1 with Wolves last weekend. Young, Matic, Martial and McTominay come into the side, with Fred dropping to the bench. Antonio Valencia, Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez all fail to make the squad.
West Ham return to a more familiar side after their mauling of Macclesfield, with Manuel Pellegrini making just one change to the side that drew with Chelsea in the league last weekend. Arnautovic returns from injury to take the place of Antonio while Grady Diangana, who scored a brace in midweek, earns a spot on the bench.
Man United subs: Lee Grant, Eric Bailly, Marcus Rashford, Fred, Ander Herrera, Matteo Darmian, Juan Mata.
