Manchester United misfired again against a Premier League underdog. This time, Manchester United broke his teeth on Sam Allardyce’s West Brom. The meeting ended in a draw.
The blackbirds shocked the eminent opponent at the very beginning of the fight. Diagnier responded to the serve into the penalty area of the Red Devils, won the air and sent the ball into the net of the Manchester United goal.
The “Red Devils” went ahead in large forces and for a long time could not restore the status quo. Only at the end of the first half, Bruna Fernandes equalized the score. The Portuguese scored a splendid shot after Luke Shaw’s classy pass from the left flank.
After the break, Manchester United continued to hold the ball for a long time, but did not manage to open the defense of Sam Allardyce’s team. The best moment was with Harry Maguire, but in the 95th (!) Minute Sam Johnston made an incredible save, transferring Maguire’s shot from close range to the post.
Manchester United have lost two points and are now 7 points behind Premier League leader Man City (while the Citizens have one game in hand). West Brom remain on the penultimate line in the standings (13 points).
West Brom – Manchester United 1: 1 (1: 1)
Goals: Diagne, 2 (1: 0); Bruno Fernandes, 44 (1: 1).
