Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted his side were fortunate to escape the concession of a penalty, but praised matchwinner Bruno Fernandes after his unique penalty-taking trait directly contributed to their victory.

The Red Devils ran out narrow 1-0 winners over West Brom to secure their first home league victory of the season.



West Brom saw their initial awarding of a spot kick reversed by VAR, while Man Utd had their saved penalty retaken after Sam Johnstone was adjudged to have left his line too early.



Despite the positive outcome, the playmaker was not pleased with having his initial spot kick saved.

Both sides had ample opportunities to score from open play, but the result of the game hinged on two penalty decisions.

“The handball rule you van discuss over and over but we get into the box and the ball into feet so with VAR a touch can be enough and it’s different to when I was playing when you had to be hacked down.” On the overturned penalty initially conceded by Fernandes, Solskjaer admitted his side may have gotten away with one.

“I looked at a penalty this afternoon, Villa-Brighton and there’s contact on the ball and then the man,” he told BT Sport.
