The result means Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side nudge themselves into second place on goal difference, ahead of Leicester City who beat Liverpool 3-1 on Saturday.

West Brom stunned the visitors in the opening two minutes when Diagne shoved off the challenge of Victor Lindelof and neatly headed the day’s first goal.

Fernandes pulled the game back for United a minute before half-time when Luke Shaw crossed the ball into the box. Despite being surrounded by West Brom players Fernandes hooked the ball with his left foot and into the top corner of the net.

Referee Craig Dawson awarded United a penalty on the hour mark but rescinded it after a VAR review showed that Harry Maguire went down too easily under Semi Ajayi‘s challenge.
