London, Nov 21 (EFE) .- Manchester United could this Saturday with West Bromwich Albion by the minimum and a penalty (1-0) and surpassed Manchester City in the standings, which lost to Tottenham Hotspur.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team took the win thanks to a controversial decision.
After the VAR contradicted the referee and annulled a penalty in favor of West Brom, the referee signaled a maximum penalty in favor of United for a hand from a defender after a shot by Juan Mata.
Bruno Fernandes, as usual, was in charge of throwing it, but Sam Johnstone guessed the intention and stopped it.
However, the VAR returned to make an appearance and declared that the goalkeeper was not on the line at the time of the hit. It was repeated and this time the Portuguese did send it inside.
West Brom was able to draw and Callum Robinson managed to hook a shot to the crossbar, but the result no longer moved and Manchester United are still in good shape after the national team break, which they left after beating Everton 1-3.
The ‘Red Devils’ rise to ninth position, with 13 points, one more than Manchester City and seven from the leadership held by Tottenham Hotspur.
West Brom, for its part, will sleep one more day in relegation places since it is eighteenth, with three units in nine games. EFE
