Manchester United 1-0 West Brom: Bruno Fernandes penalty stops the rot at Old Trafford


anchester United did just enough to secure their first home Premier League win of the season on Saturday – though West Brom will feel aggrieved by the nature of the result at Old Trafford.

Slaven Bilic’s Baggies had a penalty ruled out after referee David Coote overturned his decision following a VAR review of the pitchside monitor – and United’s winner came as a result of more controversy at the other end.

United were awarded a spot-kick after Juan Mata’s cross hit the arm of Darnell Furlong, and Coote pointed to the spot.

Bruno Fernandes saw his first penalty saved by the brilliant Sam Johnstone – an academy graduate of United – but the West Brom goalkeeper came well off his line to make the stop, with Coote ordering a retake which Fernandes buried at the second time of asking.

The result was an unconvincing one for United, but it could mark a turning point for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer given it is the Red Devils’ first League win at Old Trafford this season.
