Premier League: Manchester United fights against West Bromwich

After the international break, it was the return of football on the lawns of the Premier League. Manchester United hosted West Bromwich Albion on Matchday 9. Eighteenth and still without success after 8 days, the club from the north-west of Birmingham hoped to get out of the red zone. But in the theater of dreams, not all are granted. Opposite, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aligned a 4-2-3-1 with Fred and Matic in front of the defense, Rashford, Fernandes and Mata in support of Anthony Martial. Victim of a blow against Sweden, Paul Pogba was missing. It was not until the second act to see the Red Devils make the difference.

A story of penalties. Bruno Fernandes was first penalized with a foul that gave the Baggies a penalty. But the referee, David Coote, reversed his decision after reviewing the VAR (48th). On the other side of the field, Darnell Furlong was guilty of a hand in his area (53 ‘). The penalty struck by Bruno Fernandes was deflected by Sam Johnstone, but the referee gave it to be withdrawn. This time, the Portuguese did not miss the target (1-0, 56th). Edinson Cavani replaced Juan Mata on the hour mark (62nd), before Callum Robinson found the helm of David de Gea (65th). Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire were no more successful. Short but precious success for Manchester United (1-0), which climbed to 9th place with a late match to play.

The Premier League ranking after 9 days.
