    Background: MANCHESTER UNITED CONTINUED THEIR UNDEFEATED PROGRESS TODAY WITH A COMFORTABLE VICTORY AGAINST WEST HAM AT OLD TRAFFORD. THEY SCORED FIVE GOALS - MORE THAN IN ANY OF THEIR PREVIOUS 13 MATCHES THIS SEASON - AGAINST WEST HAM'S TWO.

    WEST HAM PROVIDED STERN OPPOSITION WITH CLIVE BEST AND ENGLAND CENTRE-FROWARD GEOFF HURST ALWAYS MEN TO RECKON WITH.

    BUT UNITED, ON HOME GROUND, TOOK THE LEAD EARLY, AND NEVER LOOKED LIKE DISAPPOINTING THEIR FANS.

    AFTER ONLY FIVE MINUTES, BURNS HEADED A CORNER FROM ASTON INTO THE WEST HAM NET, TO GIVE UNITED THEIR FIRST GOAL.

    THEN MORGAN, ON THE RIGHT WING, PUT ACROSS A CENTRE, WHICH GEORGE BEST, UNITED'S SHOCK-HAIRED STAR, LIFTED WELL TO HEAD PAST WEST HAM GOAL-KEEPER FERGUSON.

    WEST HAM FOUGHT BACK BRAVELY, BUT ON TWO OCCASIONS, UNITED ALMOST MANAGED TO ADD TO THEIR SCORE. THE LONDON TEAM FINALLY REDUCED THE ARREARS IN THE 27TH MINUTE. CLIVE BEST SENT IN A CORNER FROM THE LEFT WING WHICH UNITED GOAL-KEEPER STEPNEY FUMBLED. THE BALL FELL TO THE FEET OF REDKNAPP, WHO PUSHED IT BACK TO THE MIDDLE WHERE GEOFF HURST WAS WAITING TO HEAD IT HOME.

    MANCHESTER CONTINUED THEIR SUCCESS AFTER HALF-TIME. CHARLTON SOON MADE THE SCORE 3-1 FOLLOWING A CROSS FROM MORGAN.

    CLIVE BEST PRODUCED A FINE RUN, WHICH GAVE HURST THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAD HOME HIS SECOND GOAL FOR WEST HAM.

    THE GOAL, HOWEVER, WAS WEST HAM'S LAST. THEY FAILED TO EQUALISED, AND IN THE LAST SIX MINUTES OF THE MATCH, GEORGE BEST MADE HIS PERSONAL SCORE TWO, AND THEN DRIBBLED THE BALL UP TO WEST HAM'S GOALMOUTH FOR KIDD TO SLAM IT HOME AS UNITED'S FIFTH AND FINAL GOAL.
