Manchester United finally take a Premier League victory at Old Trafford and a second straight win in the competition although they are far from convinced Ole Gunnar Solskjær hopes his team are slowly shifting into high gear rather than continue the stutter that has been the story of their campaign Bruno Fernandes was once again the key man for United, scoring the winner with a new penalty, and if he were to ever be seriously injured, the team may well suffer

Solskjær made his Premier League debut at Alex Telles – replacing injured Luke Shaw at left-back – while his other change from the win at Everton was Nemanja Matic for Scott McTominay in midfield Paul Pogba was not available due to an issue for France against Sweden on Tuesday

Slaven Bilic’s side arrived after scoring just six times and with the lowest goal difference in the -11 division, and they started with Sam Johnstone beating Anthony Martial’s header from a free kick. of Fred a few seconds in the match

A model was set up in which United dominated, which gave the kind of quick start that hasn’t always been present so far this quarter This was exemplified by Harry Maguire’s back pass in Marcus Rashford who turned the visitors around and kicked off an impressive period of quick passing and moving play

Still, Matic and Fred’s sloppy passage offered West Brom a foothold, as Matheus Pereira looked to take advantage of the left side, however, for now, it was only a glimmer of hope for them.

Soon Fernandes was buzzing across the turf, prompting United’s best shots, and when Maguire broke it was the Portuguese who caught up with Martial after Rashford received a pass from his captain on the left and crossed over Johnstone made another nice save from No.9 and Semi Ajayi was left to bless his luck as it was his stray pass that handed possession to Maguire

West Brom’s response was admirable Suddenly Conor Townsend was behind and threatened to beat David de Gea before passing the ball Then Karlan Grant’s shot deflected Victor Lindelöf for a corner which United fought to defend

The home side’s precocious verve had subsided They still dominated the ball but rarely penetrated the final third When Fernandes hit a scoreless pass out of play it was a microcosm of the loss of focus from United Fernandes, however, is never ineffective for long.A diagonal pass which saw Juan Mata’s smart run from the right allowed the Spaniard to squared the ball towards Martial and although West Brom survived United have been invigorated

Yet if they kicked the ball around the Baggies at will, it was the latter who came closest before the break: Townsend’s corner was led by Kyle Bartley and De Gea was relieved to see the ball hitting the roof – rather than the back – off the net, the United No.1 knows little

If United needed a jerk, West Brom gave them one when early in the second half Maguire’s lack of pace meant they were exposed to the right Suddenly Conor Gallagher was fell in the area under challenge from Fernandes and David Coote awarded a penalty Still, the VAR informed the referee to consult the pitch-side monitor and he overturned his decision – it seemed correct as Fernandes had taken the ball first

United, awakened, quickly moved down the field and Rashford’s diving shot to the top corner forced Johnstone to make a sporting stop and how fortunes changed from here

VAR – plus a modified part of the penalty rule – played in United’s favor after Mata slapped Darrell Furlong’s hand and Coote granted a second kick in minutes Fernandes’ scoring jump in his swing was followed by Johnstone who saved his effort, but the keeper was a yard from his line before the ball was hit This meant that this season’s diktat that the penalty should be joined was triggered

This time the No.18 jumped out and then beat Johnstone high to his right and United had the lead It felt barely deserved, although they wouldn’t have cared much given the desperate need for a league victory here

If United were hoping to return home, Callum Robinson had other ideas, the substitute’s effort collapsed on De Gea’s bar It signaled the opening of the contest: Rashford and Maguire were turned down by the ‘impressive Johnstone and although West Brom insisted on United It means they are in ninth place with 13 points and if their game in hand is won the picture will be even rosier
