MetiNews.Com - West Bromwich Albion came mightily close to taking a point from Saturday evening's clash with Manchester United - and one player impressed against his former club
Breaking News ! There was a feeling of relief at Old Trafford last night as Manchester United secured their first home win of the Premier League season against West Bromwich Albion. Bruno Fernandes was involved in penalty drama at both ends of the pitch as United laboured their way to a 1-0 victory. However, many United fans were well impressed by the performance of Baggies goalkeeper Sam Johnstone - a former Red Devils trainee. The Baggies stopper had an outstanding game denying Anthony Martial at the start, Marcus Rashford at the end and several others in between.

DDG was exceptional, Maguire and Lindelof were great. Think Martial was excellent and very unlucky.

@Frazer_AC: Sam Johnstone MOTM. We didn’t play particularly well, but he was phenomenal. @deadwoodunited: Agreed Johnstone had a blinder but so many poor performances for #mufc again. Ole got the team wrong and did not deserve the points. Big worry for #mufc as Greenwood can’t get into the squad and Rashford/Martial have been very inconsistent.
