A revival was granted soon after and Fernandes nailed that one to give the Red Devils an early lead, a lead that proved decisive in a tense 1-0 victory

Well it all started with a referee who made the headlines for all the wrong reasons

David Coote was supposed to referee the match between defending champions Liverpool and Leicester, but was removed from the match

Instead, he was appointed Video Assistant Referee (VAR), but he was subsequently removed from that role as well.

It comes after Liverpool fans got angry at Coote for his inaction after Jordan Pickford’s tackle which ended Virgil van Dijk’s season

He did, however, have the whistle for United’s clash with West Brom and again sparked controversy early on

VAR asked Coote to reconsider the decision, but he ruled there was no contact and changed his mind in a decision that confused some

The Premier League’s ability to have VAR decisions in carbon copy on the same day / weekend is absolutely amazing And like the Aston Villa decision, it is not a clear and obvious mistake and the decision of the referee giving the penalty should have stood #MUNWBA

As soon as the referee went to the screen you had a horrible idea of ​​what was going to happen, having seen the late Villa penalty ruled out earlier Gallagher made the most of the contact, but was fouled Crazy #WBA

<p Sport 'Ron Walker said

“Coote was the man who was on VAR when Cesar Azpilicueta knocked out Giovani Lo Celso last season, and when Jordan Pickford injured Virgil Van Dijk a few weeks ago – it probably won’t be the last he will hear about the latest hoax decision to add to the list “

To make matters worse for West Brom, United received a penalty five minutes later after Darnell Furlong was pinged for a handball

The moment of relief was brief for the visitors, but a recovery was awarded with the VAR decision, Johnstone was out of line when the kick was taken

Fernandes, however, handed the penalty to end an insane 10 minutes of football after a disappointing first half
