Bottom-of-the-table West Brom scored an early goal and returned home. That was enough to cross Manchester United’s first team.
Manchester United, runners-up to the Premier League, are currently not happy with matches against underdogs. At the end of January, there was a surprise loss to the last Sheffield United, and today this was West Bromwich’s second surprising turn.
West Bromwich Crisis Club has not had a fresh start to their dismal season since they signed Sam Allardyce two months ago. Instead, one begins to lie hopelessly away from safe ground.
But at home against Man United, the team was on alert from the start. Mbaye Diani nodded 1-0 in the second minute. Portuguese star Bruno Fernandez scored the equalizer for United just before the end of the first half, with a goal from a shot that was his 14th goal this season.
In the second half, a Manchester United penalty kick was eliminated after a VAR review. They had one ball on the opponent’s goal line and one on the post – but 1-1 they kept going until the end.
– We played the whole match in the half of the field. We can do more and improve, but it is frustrating. United captain Harry Maguire on the Sky Sports broadcast thought it was a tough job to play against a team that was defending so low.
Man United hold second place in this series, but are now in the same league as Leicester.
Arsenal beat Leeds 4-2, overtaking them to 10th in the table. Leeds played one less game.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, captain of London club, scored three of the team’s goals – his first hat-trick for “Arsenal”.
