Marcos Rojo took to Instagram to reveal his delight at helping Manchester United seal a 2-1 victory over West Ham United on Saturday.

Wayne Rooney scored a fifth-minute opener at Old Trafford and United appeared to be easing towards three points when Robin van Persie doubled the home side’s advantage in the 22nd minute.

However, Diafra Sakho halved the deficit seven minutes before half-time, and Rooney ensured a nervy finish when he recieved a straight red card for kicking out at Stewart Downing.

But Louis van Gaal’s side held on to secure their second victory of the season, and Rojo posted the picture above on Instagram after the game.

The defender, who played the full 90 minutes, wrote: “Very difficult game but we achieved our objective. Congratulation to my team mates..”

The win left United seventh in the Premier League table on eight points.
