West Brom Have Penalty Controversially Overturned At Old Trafford, Before Manchester United Get One Themselves

There was penalty controversy at Old Trafford as West Brom had a penalty overturned before Manchester United scored one after a retake.

Referee David Coote initially pointed to the spot after on-loan Chelsea man Conor Gallagher went down under the challenge of Bruno Fernandes inside the area.

Fernandes had appeared to catch Gallagher on the shin but upon checking the screen in the same way Michael Oliver did in stoppage time of Aston Villa vs Brighton game, Coote went back on his decision and the decision was changed.

Then, minutes later, United were awarded a spot-kick themselves after Darnell Furlong was adjudged to have handled the ball.

Fernandes stepped up and saw his effort saved by former United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone in what looked to be his second consecutive penalty miss for the Red Devils.

That was until it emerged Johnstone had strayed off his line. Fernandes went the opposite way and this time put the second penalty away with conviction despite the 'keeper guessing right.

The other section of controversy in the sequence was that Gallagher was clearly fouled by Fred in the build-up to Juan Mata winning the penalty.

United, despite not being at their best, saw out the 1-0 victory to record their first league win at Old Trafford this term.
