United raced into a three-goal lead before Carlton Cole grabbed a late consolation for the visitors.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Allardyce could not hide his disappointment at the result.

Allardyce said: "I think we made the victory too easy for them. I didn't think we made them work hard enough for it.

"We made silly mistakes and when Manchester United get a sniff like that they are not going to turn it down. We did get better in the second half and played a little more like we know we can but it was too late for us to try and get any points.

"From my point of view there were a few players who didn't play against Tottenham in the week who I expected more from. Those that did play were tired at the end but some should have contributed more."

Allardyce handed a Premier League debut to goalkeeper Adrian and thought he performed well.

Allardyce added: "I haven't seen the goals but from our point of view we'll look at his overall performance tomorrow, as we do all the players, but it looked like he had a good game."

West Ham entertain Arsenal on Boxing Day before rounding off 2013 with a game against West Brom at Upton Park next Saturday.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
