Video: Man Utd fortunate as West Brom controversially have penalty overturned

West Brom have been controversially denied the chance to take the lead against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Baggies were rewarded a spot-kick just after half-time when Bruno Fernandes was adjudged to have caught Conor Gallagher in the box.

David Coote had no hesitation in pointing to the spot in a decision that has divided opinion on social media.

But after being advised by VAR to check his pitch side monitor, United were given a reprieve as the decision was overturned.

Moments later, David De Gea kept out Conor Townsend as the away side applied early pressure in the second-half.

EDIT: United have taken the lead minutes later through a Bruno Fernandes penalty. 

The Portuguese playmaker’s first spot-kick was saved but Sam Johnstone was ruled to have been off his line, and Fernandes made no mistake on his second attempt.
