London - Emmanuel Emenike and Victor Moses missed the thrilling encounter between West Ham United and Manchester United on Tuesday.
The Nigeria duo were left on the bench for all duration as West Ham came from behind to beat their visitors 3-2 in an English Premier League game that saw the Hammers mark their departure from Upton Park after 112 years.
Senegal striker Diafra Sakho started the celebrations, thrilling the Upton Park faithful with a tenth-minute goal that lasted the whole first half.
Anthony Martial drew level six minutes into the second half, and would go on the to get a brace by putting Manchester United in the lead in the 72nd minute. West Ham responded four minutes later when Michail Antonio restored parity and Winston Reid got the winner with nine minutes left on the clock.

Since joining the side on loan in January, Emenike, 29, has featured 13 times in the EPL, but failed to contribute a goal or an assist—although he did find the net twice during the Hammers’ run to the FA Cup semi-final.
Moses, also on loan since last summer, has contended with injury and fitness concerns, managing just one goal and two assists in 20 EPL showings.
Now 25, the time has come for Moses to settle down at one club and attempt to build a legacy, rather than persist with the chopping and changing that has characterised his recent career.
