Manchester United was dominant in the first half, but only managed the one goal through a Gareth McAuley own goal in the 9th minute. West Brom looked content to sit back and defend without doing much pressing. They did manage to get a couple free kicks just outside the penalty area, but nothing came of them.
West Brom looked much better in the second half and Ben Foster were certainly the man of the match. The Baggies had several good chances, but the United defense was well organized with Nemanja Vidic doing leading from the back. Robin van Persie finished off the game in the 90th minute with an excellent curving shot.
