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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
