Manchester United must be satisfied with the achievement of one point when they go to The Hawthorns, West Bromwich Albion headquarters in the matchday 24 Premier League match on Sunday (15/2).
Having fallen behind first through Mbaye Diagne’s quick goal in the second minute, Bruno Fernandes saved his team from defeat with a return goal he scored one minute before halftime. West Brom final score 1-1 Man United.
After the match, the Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire seemed unable to cover his disappointment, he also highlighted the performance of the match leader referee, Craig Pawson, who still approved the home’s opener despite Diagne’s first foul on Victor Lindelof.
Not only that, Maguire also thought that his team deserved a penalty when he was brought down by Sami Ajayi in the penalty box in the 64th minute, but the referee who saw the replay on VAR thought Maguire was already in position. offside.
“I firmly believe that Sami Ajayi’s offense should result in a penalty for Manchester United. I also don’t understand why the referee should check VAR first,” Maguire said as reported by the Manchester Evening News.
“There was a touch on the shoulder and he pulled the jersey I was wearing. I also felt the tackle on the heel. The referee has pointed to the spot, the decision should not be overturned.” he added.
One point against West Brom is clearly a very detrimental thing to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad, especially in the previous match they also drew 3-3 with Everton. Although still in second place in the standings, Man United is only within goal difference with Leicester City who is in third place.
