What Manchester United star Tyrell Malacia did as he walked past West Ham fans after being subbed off was pure class.
And David Moyes’ men deservedly led at the break, although it was not without some long overdue good fortune.

The 23-year-old had to walk a gauntlet of West Ham fans was he exited the pitch on the opposite side to the dugouts.
As he walked behind the goal being goaded – in good humour – by Hammers supporters, Malacia spotted the giant West Ham crest on the floor.
He then made a point of avoiding walking over the club’s crossed Hammers crest in a show of respect.
It was a really classy gesture from the Manchester United man, especially with his team on their way to a damaging defeat.
Malacia’s actions were applauded by those in the crowd who spotted it. And rightly so.
