West Ham United forward Felipe Anderson has revealed the secret behind the sensational strike against Manchester United in a Premier League clash at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday.

The Brazilian international was on target as West Ham United secured their first home win of the new Premier League season with a 3-1 victory over Manchester United.

Felipe Anderson signed for the Hammers during this summer’s transfer window after the London outfit paid Italian Serie A side, Lazio, a club-record fee of £36m for his services.

He spoke about his sensational strike during an exclusive interview with West Ham TV.

According to him, he didn’t think before flicking Pablo Zabaleta’s cross past Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea and into the net as he added that it was done instinctively.

He gave the home side a 5th-minute lead before Swedish defender Victor Lindelof diverted Andriy Yarmolenko’s shot into the net on 43 minutes to give West Ham a two-lead at halftime.

Manchester United substitute Marcus Rashford briefly gave the Red Devils a lifeline in the 71st but it proved to be a mere consolation after Marko Arnautovic sealed the victory three minutes later to hand Jose Mourinho’s team a third league loss after just seven games.
