Man Utd vs West Brom: We were lucky to win – Solskjaer admits

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has admitted his side were ‘lucky’ with the West Brom penalty decision that was overturned during their 1-0 win at Old Trafford on Saturday.

After a goalless first half, Slaven Bilic’s side were awarded a penalty in the second half after referee David Coote deemed Bruno Fernandes had fouled Conor Gallagher in the box.

Coote eventually reviewed the incident on the VAR pitch-side monitor and reversed his decision.

The referee later awarded United a penalty 10 minutes later, which Fernandes tucked away. But after his first attempt was saved, goalkeeper Sam Johnstone was caught coming off his line.

“In my head, it might be a penalty. Maybe, here we’re a tad lucky but none of them are given. Maybe the rules are different to how I interpret them,” he said.
