United were much better after half-time and received a penalty shortly after the hour. Maguire went down with Ajayi behind him and Craig Pawson pointed carefully after checking the pitchside monitor, however, the referee withdrew his decision since not enough contact was made to commit the foul Maguire appears to be offside in the build-up too, although this does not appear to have been verified

United could have added another soon after but was denied on the line Maguire nodded down Shaw’s corner to find Mason Greenwood but his attempt was stopped by Johnstone’s outstretched foot, Scott McTominay then tried to catch the rebound but Darnell Furlong cleared the line

He showed some physicality throughout and got around Lindelof and Maguire easily on two separate occasions Diagne could have scored a hat trick for his afternoon’s efforts but missed two glorious late chances The exertion was particularly excruciating and the striker must have score these hits when West Brom has any hope of defeating relegation

“This is such a bad result for Manchester United He just said it was a tough place, West Brom won a home game against the bottom team Is that a difficult place when you’re second or third in the league?

“West Brom had better odds This is an exceptionally poor performance and result for Manchester United if you think they have a chance to put pressure on Manchester City no, no”

West Brom manager Sam Allardyce said: “It was a fantastic point and a game that we could have easily won with our chances and I’m very happy with our tactics We were brilliant at the way we controlled the element of the Manchester United threat. They were limited to little or no chance, but it was an absolutely brilliant goal [by Fernandes] so hold your hands up for that / p>

“In the second half we contained the opposition again, limited it and then stepped down to create opportunities. Our big man Mbaye scored a great goal today but he could have had three. He would have been the winner today can be for us

83 – In just 83 seconds, Mbaye Diagne has scored the earliest goal conceded by Manchester United in the Premier League since Christian Eriksen’s eleventh second goal in January 2018 on Shocked ImageTwittercom / 0IOTfBiApQ

“I’m really excited about the players with their application, the way they destroyed their opponents and how they made the best use of their possession Overall, the entire team consistently achieved its best level over 90 minutes”and more I can not ask

“It’s another point to get us moving without losing football games. Can we put together an unbeaten series of games? The efforts we make today must match when we go to Burnley next week. It will be a different type of game and tactic, but when we get to the top of our game and create opportunities we will hopefully be there to finish them “

Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Nobody’s going to give it away [the Premier League title race] this early. This season is so unpredictable, life is so unpredictable, anything can happen and of course we will not deal with the second satisfied

“It’s a compliment to the guys for putting ourselves in the position we are in. We’re the team closest to Man City and we should challenge the team in front of us

“We’re not going to let them get away with it, but we have to win games to be in this position

“At the moment that record [19 Premier League games unbeaten] means nothing. We need three points badly because we want to get the table up, and you’re not doing it by taking a point away from home It’s a disappointing result today

“On the other hand, part of the play was really good, some of the performances were really good so there are some positives. Overall, however, we’re only disappointed on one point

“We put a lot of pressure on, put pressure on and tied them back, but I didn’t feel like we created big enough moments to score the goals”We had no aura

“When we said that, we came down the pages and flashed a couple of crosses down the line, but maybe the cross or the position or the movement wasn’t there. We didn’t have big moments that you thought were should have been disappointing to score, despite the fact that the ball was in the last third all but a couple of counter-attacks, which is always dangerous when you have Premier League players against you “

“I was so sure it was a punishment I don’t understand why he was sent to check it out

“I’m on the goal side of the defender, I feel a touch on my shoulder, he pulls me back and then I also feel a clip on my heels. It was minimal, but it’s a penalty, especially after the referee hit that Point that you believe has no chance of being knocked over

“I was so confident it would be given but it seems the decisions are going against us at the moment, however, we cannot rely on VAR, we puffed and puffed and we need to improve

“We made enough to win the game The target for me is a foul, but in the end we snorted and sniffed and it’s a great save in front of Sam”

“We dominated the game, we can do better, but it’s disappointing. It was a difficult start to collect so early, I think it’s a foul for the goal, but we showed a good reaction and sometimes played something too slow but had a good pace in the second half and scored two or three points goals on another day “
