Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has conceded his side were ‘fortunate’ with the West Brom penalty decision that was toppled during their 1-0 success at Old Trafford on Saturday.
After a goalless first half, Slaven Bilic’s side were granted a penalty in the second half after ref David Coote regarded Bruno Fernandes had fouled Conor Gallagher in the box.
Coote ultimately audited the occurrence on the VAR pitch-side screen and switched his choice.
The official later granted United a penalty 10 minutes after the fact, which Fernandes concealed. In any case, after his first endeavor was spared, goalkeeper Sam Johnstone was discovered falling off his line.
Solskjaer, addressing BT Sport after the game, concedes his side were fortunate West Brom’s penalty was chalked off, taking note of that he accepted a comparable bring in a previous Premier League game wasn’t right.
“I looked at a penalty this afternoon, Villa-Brighton and there’s contact on the ball and then the man.
“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.
