Manchester United v West Bromwich Albion - Preview

Mason Greenwood among Manchester United concerns but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer upbeat

Manchester United have some injury concerns but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels positive about his options when they host West Brom.

Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones were the only players unable to train on the eve of the match, although Saturday will come too soon for Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo as they build fitness.

Solskjaer suggested Mason Greenwood may also not make it as he returns from illness, while he is waiting to see if Marcus Rashford had any reaction to his return to training on Friday following a shoulder complaint.

Victor Lindelof will have an ongoing back issue assessed on Saturday, when Alex Telles could make his Premier League debut having been laid low following a positive Covid-19 test.

West Brom expect to have defender Branislav Ivanovic, forward Matheus Pereira and Callum Robinson all available following self-isolation after positive Covid-19 tests.

Ivanovic and Pereira had both been unavailable for the defeat by Tottenham before the international break, while Robinson has completed his 10-day isolation period after testing positive for the virus while away with the Republic of Ireland.

The Baggies are waiting for the all clear from other players who have returned after international duty. Forward Hal Robson-Kanu (broken arm) has started some group training and midfielder Sam Field (knee) is also stepping up his own rehabilitation.

Manchester United provisional squad: De Gea, Henderson, Grant, Wan-Bissaka, Fosu-Mensah, Lindelof, Maguire, Mengi, Tuanzebe, Telles, Williams, Fred, Fernandes, Matic, McTominay, Pogba, Van De Beek, Lingard, James, Mata, Cavani, Ighalo, Martial, Rashford.

West Brom provisional squad: Johnstone, Furlong, Bartley, Ajayi, Townsend, O’Shea, Livermore, Krovinovic, Gallagher, Robinson, Grant, Button, Ivanovic, Pereira, Gibbs, Peltier, Phillips, Diangana, Sawyers, Edwards.

    Manchester United scrape to first home league win after penalty controversy

    Bruno Fernandes won it with a retaken penalty for the Red Devils.

    Bruno Fernandes was involved in penalty drama at both ends against West Brom as the midfielder secured Manchester United’s first home league win of the season.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men avoided becoming just the third side in the club’s history to start a campaign with five winless home league matches on Saturday evening.

    West Brom – without a victory since promotion back to the Premier League – made life difficult for United, who eked out a 1-0 win thanks to Fernandes’ penalty after the video assistant referee’s intervention during a frantic start to the second half.

    Man-of-the-match Sam Johnstone produced fine saves to thwart Anthony Martial and his former club in a goalless opening period at Old Trafford, where Slaven Bilic’s men looked set to open the scoring straight after half-time.

    Referee David Coote pointed to the spot after adjudging Fernandes to have taken down Conor Gallagher in the box but overturned his decision after reviewing the incident on the advice of VAR.

    Peter Bankes came to the Portuguese’s assistance again shortly afterwards, having spotted Johnstone strayed off his line when saving his penalty following a Darnell Furlong handball.

    Fernandes fired home the retaken spot-kick to ensure United’s wait for a Premier League win at Old Trafford did not extend into December.

    After a build-up dominated by the cyber-attack on the host club, Solskjaer’s side were denied a dream start as Johnstone reacted superbly to stop Martial glancing home Juan Mata’s free-kick inside 100 seconds.

    United kept the Baggies penned back as they searched of an early opener but a mixture of dogged defending and poor final passes prevented another clear-cut chance until the 16th minute.

    Harry Maguire cut out an undercooked pass inside own half and bursts forwards, eventually playing out to Marcus Rashford on the left.

    The forward’s fizzing ball across the box was met by a first-time touch by Fernandes into the path of Martial, whose low shot was saved well by Johnstone.

    The France international should have done better and saw penalty appeals rejected shortly after Matheus Pereira sent a lovely ball through for Karlan Grant to get away a strike that was deflected wide.

    It was a rare voyage forwards by the Baggies, who saw Kyle Bartley direct an unorthodox header just over David De Gea’s goal as the opening period came to a close.

    Bilic’s side returned from the break strongly and referee Coote swiftly pointed to the spot having seen Gallagher go down under a challenge from Fernandes.

    The irate Portuguese midfielder claimed he got the ball and eventually saw the decision overturned after the referee watched a replay of the incident on the advice of the VAR.

    After Rashford saw a long-range effort superbly saved and Conor Townsend was thwarted by the feet of De Gea, Fernandes would again be involved in another penalty decision.

    Coote pointed to the spot after Darnell Furlong’s handled a Juan Mata cross and the normally reliable United midfielder stepped up, only for Johnstone to save low to his left.

    But the Baggies’ celebrations were cut short as the goalkeeper had strayed well off his line, with the VAR ordering a retake that Fernandes lashed into the top left-hand corner.

    It was a gut punch that West Brom attempted to fight back from, with substitute Callum Robinson cracking a fine effort off the crossbar from the edge of the box in the 65th minute.

    But while the visitors were making life uncomfortable for Solskjaer’s side, Johnstone was having to be at his best between the sticks.

    The former United academy player showed superb composure and reflexes to tip a delayed Rashford effort wide, with the goalkeeper denying Maguire as they tried their luck again.

    Furlong’s last-ditch challenge prevented Martial adding another in stoppage-time as United’s wait for a home win came to an end.
