Bruno Fernandes was involved in penalty drama at both ends against West Brom as the midfielder secured Manchester United’s first home league win of the season.

West Brom – without a victory since promotion back to the Premier League – made life difficult for United, who eked out a 1-0 win thanks to Fernandes’ penalty after the video assistant referee’s intervention during a frantic start to the second half.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men avoided becoming just the third side in the club’s history to start a campaign with five winless home league matches on Saturday evening.

Furlong’s last-ditch challenge prevented Martial adding another in stoppage-time as United’s wait for a home win came to an end.

Fernandes fired home the retaken spot-kick to ensure United’s wait for a Premier League win at Old Trafford did not extend into December.

It was a gut punch that West Brom attempted to fight back from, with substitute Callum Robinson cracking a fine effort off the crossbar from the edge of the box in the 65th minute.

The former United academy player showed superb composure and reflexes to tip a delayed Rashford effort wide, with the goalkeeper denying Maguire as they tried their luck again.
