Breaking News ! Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims that referee David Coote officiated West Brom’s clash with Manchester United correctly after a series of highly questionable decisions led to the Red Devils taking all three points. The man in the middle pointed to the spot within a couple of minutes of the restart after Albion midfielder Conor Gallagher appeared to be tripped in the penalty area by Bruno Fernandes. Yet after consulting the VAR screen on the touch-line, Coote overturned his call.

Sam Johnstone, Albion’s best player, denied Fernandes’ first effort, but Coote pulled the play back after Johnstone was deemed to have left his line prematurely and the spot kick was retaken - Fernandes dispatched it at the second attempt.

“We’re delighted to get three points, a win and a clean sheet - we’re happy with that,” Solskjaer said. “They’re very tight calls, but I think he’s made two correct calls - three correct calls, because Sam is off his line. We know we can play better than this. We could’ve taken our chances early on, and when you don’t do that you can see there is an edge to the game. “We never had the composure or quality to get that second goal which would’ve made it more comfortable.”
