Video: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives verdict on West Brom goal vs Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer called for more consistency in referring decisions despite admitting West Brom’s goal should have stood against Manchester United. 

United were frustrated in a 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns and fell behind inside the first two minutes when Mbaye Diagne mauled Victor Lindelof before heading past David de Gea.

Diagne and Lindelof were involved in a physical tussle that the Swedish international was ultimately well beaten in but some suggested there might have been foul play from the Baggies striker.

Solskjaer said post-match that, as a striker himself, there was no wrongdoing as United failed to negotiate an opening they had planned for before kick-off.

But the United boss also pointed to Harry Maguire’s ruled out goal against Burnley at Turf Moor where he made less contact with the opposition defender but was penalised.

Solskjaer has called for more clarity in decision making but he certainly has no excuses about the manner of dropping two more points this afternoon.

  1. West Brom’s striker should have been shown a Card for foul 1st. He grabbed shoulder, face was blocked to stop defender to clear the ball. It was certainly not a goal. You can not allow a player to wrestle down defender and score. A different referee must had disallowed the goal.
