Match Report: West Brom 1-2 Manchester United

Wayne Rooney got the perfect start scoring his first goal from open play this season on the third minute with a header from a brilliant Patrice Evra cross. That goal obviously gave the fans a feeling that they were going to stroll past the baggies but unfortunately that didn’t happen!

The early goal settled the players which is something we’ve seen a lot of this season from United, no drive for more which is disappointing for the fans that do all they can to travel to those away games and give an amazing amount of support which we all comment on, via twitter.

Former Middlesbrough midfielder, James Morrison scored an equalizer for West Brom on the 14th minute. I felt a goal coming from West Brom seeing they kept pushing us, rightly so when your opposition decides to settle after scoring an early goal.

Gary Neville started the game giving Rafael a rest, after the Brazilian had a busy first half to the season becoming one of United’s better players. I’m a huge Gary Neville fan, the man is a legend but he just hasn’t got the legs anymore and he was lucky not to have been sent off after taking down West Brom’s Dorrans in the box.

The baggies continued to press United, creating a number of chances from Chris Brunt, Jerome Thomas and Peter Odemwingie who later took a ridiculous penalty, dragging the ball nearly a mile wide!

An ineffective Berbatov was substituted for Chicharito who scored the winner on the 75th minute. The goal came from a Wayne Rooney cross which was converted by Javier Hernandez, about 6 yards out.

West Brom were put on the back-foot and tried everything they possibly could in the last 10 minutes, but Vidic again on top form was unbeatable back there.
