Manchester United hosted West Brom at Old Trafford tonight, with VAR playing a huge role in the late kick-off at Old Trafford.
United, without a Premier League win in four attempts this season going into the encounter, were kept at bay by West Brom in the first-half.
But VAR ultimately decided the outcome, West Brom denied a penalty just after the restart, after ref David Coote overturned his own decision after reviewing it on a pitchside monitor.
Then United were awarded a penalty for handball, missed by Bruno Fernandes, who scored at the second attempt after the kick was retaken because he was off his line early for the first.
