Yet another time, Manchester United fell behind early on when Mbaye Diagne nodded West Brom into a shock lead after just 83 seconds. But, having taken 21 points from losing positions this season, there was hope for United.

Despite a sluggish first-half performance, it was another moment of magic from Fernandes  at the 44th minute,  that hauled the visitors level as he fired home a powerful volley.

However, Manchester United were much improved after the break and had a penalty overturned by VAR after it judged Semi Ajayi had not made enough contact to foul Harry Maguire.

West Brom could also have snatched a late winner, but Diagne unfortunately,  missed two glorious chances, while Maguire saw an effort tipped over the bar by Sam Johnstone with the last kick of the game.

Although, United’s unbeaten away run in the Premier League now stands at 19 games and they go back into second on goal difference, which is seven points behind the league leaders Manchester City. The draw does little to boost West Brom’s hopes of survival as they remain in 19th with 13 points.

Meanwhile, It took only less than two minutes for West Brom to score. Diagne was a handful against Spurs and made himself even more of a nuisance against United. Connor Gallagher looped a cross into the area and Diagne wrapped himself around the back of Victor Lindelof to not the ball home.
