Bruno Fernandes’s penalty hands United a first home win in a match of two penalties

Published

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer concedes his side were ‘lucky’ that West Brom had a penalty decision overturned in their 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

 

After a goalless first 45 minutes, Slaven Bilic’s side were awarded a spot-kick early in the second half after referee David Coote ruled that Bruno Fernandes had fouled Conor Gallagher in the box.

 

VAR however intervened with the decision eventually changed after Coote reviewed the incident on the sideline. Replays suggested Fernandes did make some contact with the ball before the man.

 

The Red Devils made the most of the call and were themselves awarded a penalty 10 minutes later which Fernandes tucked away at the second time of asking after his first attempt was saved only for goalkeeper Sam Johnstone to be caught coming of his line.

 

Solskjaer, referencing Aston Villa’s similarly overturned last-minute spot-kick in their 2-1 home defeat to Brighton earlier on Saturday, told BT Sport he thought both penalties should have been awarded.

 

He said: “I looked at the penalty this afternoon at Villa-Brighton, and there’s contact on the ball and the man. In my head, it might be a penalty, and there as well.

 

With this victory, United see themselves in the top half of the table for the first time this seasin with 13 points from 9 games at 8th position.

 

While for West Brom, they remain in the bottom three with only 3 points.

 

United will host Istanbul Basaksehir midweek, while also to play away to Southampton on Sunday.

Tiwa Savages speaks on career, love life and childhood.

Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage talked extensively about her rise in the entertainment industry, struggles, and her life in general.

In a recent interview hosted by Ebuka on Bounce Radio Live, the Koroba crooner said that major record labels in Nigeria refused to sign her at the beginning of her career, the reason she created one with former manager and ex-husband, Teebillz. On why she went back to Mavin records, Tiwa stated that she went back after being originally rejected because Don Jazzy was an amazing producer who created stars and the label also felt like family. She mentioned that she left Mavin years later because she wanted to take the risk of being on her own even though it was a scary move, and added that sometimes people had to leave for other acts to grow. The singer further said that male artistes were always excused for some behaviours but females always got thrown under the bus for doing the same thing. Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Tiwa Savage opened up about her childhood and the challenges she faced as a Nigerian kid abroad. Tiwa revealed she moved to London with her mom when she was 10, and settling in was a problem as she got bullied a lot by her school mates.

According to her, the bullying pushed her to attempt to take her life on two different occasions. She revealed she hated her skin colour and wanted to bleach her skin.
