Ralf Rangnick made a fresh discovery about his side in the late 1-0 win over West Ham United.

Rangnick has faced a huge challenge since taking the reigns at Old Trafford as his players have struggled to fully adapt to his intense press and 4-2-2 formation.

But the interim United boss has now tweaked his system – and made a startling discovery about his best midfield combination.

It comes as star man Cristiano Ronaldo couldn’t hide his frustration with a teammate during the Premier League victory over West Ham, and as Rangnick sent a message to United fans.

Here are Mirror Football’s latest Manchester United headlines.

Rangnick’s message to fans

Ralf Rangnick has thanked the Old Trafford home support for helping to push his side to victory.

Super-sub Marcus Rashford turned home deep into injury-time right in front of the Stretford End to seal a 1-0 win that rocked Old Trafford to its foundations.

Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to become rather frustrated with teammate Mason Greenwood during Saturday’s Premier League encounter.

And once again there were several incidents during the encounter with West Ham where Ronaldo showed his unhappiness at the decisions made by his younger teammate.

One, in particular, left Ronaldo throwing his arms up in the air in disgust.

Rangnick’s formation discovery

It now appears that Rangnick has finally found his best midfield combination, that’s giving new balance to the side.

Scott McTominay and Fred have been United’s most consistent midfield partnership in recent years – but McFred now appears to have been split up and a new partnership are running things.
