West Brom Further Dent Man Utd’s Title Hopes With Draw

Manchester United found it difficult to get all three points against West Brom as the two sides settled for a draw.

Mbaye Diagne got The Baggies off to a dream after just 80 seconds before United drew level through Bruno Fernandes’ stunning effort, with Harry Maguire seeing a last-gasp header superbly turned on to a post by Sam Johnstone as a scrappy clash ended 1-1.

The second period was more open and eventful.

Referee Craig Pawson overturned his decision to award a penalty for a Semi Ajayi foul on Maguire after reviewing the footage on the pitchside monitor.

Johnstone denied Mason Greenwood before Darnell Furlong cleared a Scott McTominay effort off the line, while at the other end David De Gea prevented Diagne securing a shock win with a superb double save.

Maguire went on his knees after former United goalkeeper Johnstone tipped his stoppage-time header on to a post.
