Rooney hat-trick stuns Hammers

Published Add your comment

Wayne Rooney scored a dramatic hat-trick as Manchester United produced another sensational late comeback to beat West Ham 4-2 and edge closer to the Barclays Premier League title.

United appeared certain to open the door for Arsenal and Chelsea when their defence went into meltdown to gift the Hammers two penalties which Mark Noble despatched with aplomb.

But the leaders were rewarded for going for broke in the second half, Rooney starting the fightback with just 25 minutes remaining and completing his 14-minute treble from the spot before substitute Javier Hernandez sealed the points.
