The Red Devils had appeared on course to extend their lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League after Cristiano Ronaldo gave them an early lead. But the Portugal forward then missed a penalty before Anton Ferdinand and Matthew Upson both scored with headers at the other end to give the Hammers victory.
Arsenal´s victory at Everton enabled them to replace United at the summit, but Ferguson said: "I have no complaints. We were beaten by the better team. We were not nearly up to our normal performance."
