Rio Ferdinand has blasted the decision to overturn a penalty awarded to West Bromwich Albion as the Baggies fell to a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Slaven Bilic's side made United work for all three points with a retaken Bruno Fernandes penalty the difference in a game where former United man Sam Johnstone dazzled between the sticks for the visitors.



Referee David Coote was advised to refer to the pitchside monitor and review the decision he had made, and determined that the call should be reversed.



Ferdinand has slammed the decision to overrule the penalty, insisting that the significant reversal had a major impact on the outcome of the game.

Former referee Peter Walton could not justify the decision made by Coote to overrule his own call.

As has been the case in most games since he joined from Sporting Lisbon in January, Fernandes was in the thick of the action as United picked up their first three points at home in the league this season.

The 25-year-old gave his perspective on the three key moments in the game - his incident with Gallagher, the failed spot kick saved by Johnstone and the retaken penalty.
