Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed delight in some of the refereeing decisions in last night’s 1-0 victory over West Brom at Old Trafford.

Manchester United picked up their first home victory of the current Premier League season, thanks to a penalty goal from Bruno Fernandes.

The Portuguese’s initial penalty effort had been saved by Sam Johnstone, but it was ruled out, and a retake ordered, after the goalie was adjudged to had been off his line.

The resulting retake was then, well- converted by Fernandes, to hand us a much-needed victory.

And while speaking after the encounter, Solskjaer revealed the call for a retake was spot-on, as well as a few other decisions by the referee.

He said, “We’re delighted to get three points, of course.

“First win at home in the league this season, a clean sheet, we’re happy with that. Three very tight calls and I think it’s probably three right decisions because Sam was off the line”.

While United’s performance wasn’t anywhere near what they showed against Everton, a win is a win, and we’ll take the positives and move on.
