Manchester United retained top spot in the Barclays Premier League with a well deserved, if not slightly unconvincing 1-0 win over West Ham on Wednesday evening.

Robin van Persie opened the scoring after just 33 seconds at Old Trafford, hitting a heavily deflected shot off James Collins and over the stranded Jussi Jaaskelainen.

The Reds pressed for a second goal throughout the rest of the match, but in the end, were left frustrated by a well-organised Hammers defence intent on keeping things tight.

As ever, club photographers John and Matt Peters were on hand to capture the action at the Theatre of Dreams. You can view the best of their photos by clicking on the main image above.
