Manchester United salvage a point at West Brom

Manchester United came from behind to secure a draw at struggling West Brom and lose the grip in the Premier League title chase.

The draw moves Manchester United above Leicester and in second position but leaves them seven points behind league leaders Manchester City.

The host took a shocking lead in the 83rd second when striker Mbaye Diagne who is on loan at West Brom overpowered Lindelof to head in Conor Gallagher’s cross.

Ole Gunnar’s side struggled to find the net until Bruno Fernandes found the back of the net in the 44th minute thanks to a Luke Shaw cross.

Manchester United continued with their attacking in the second half as Mc Tominay and Mason Greenwood had their chances blocked by Sam Johnstone.

England defender Harry Maguire come close in the last minute to give the visitors a lead but his attempt was tipped off the bar by goalkeeper Johnstone.

Sam Allardyce could have also secured a crucial win when Mbaye Digne’s attempt came off the crossbar as both sides shared spoils.

The results extended Manchester United’s away unbeaten run to 19 even though they were held by a relegation side club West Brom.

They have however lost the momentum to stage a spirited title defense against Manchester City who are winning back to back Premier League fixtures at the moment.
