'Maybe the rules are different than how I interpret them!' - Solskjaer admits Man Utd 'lucky' to see West Brom penalty overturned


Solskjaer/Bilic 2020

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer concedes his side were 'lucky' that West Brom had apenalty decisionoverturned in their 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

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 collecting Gallagher.

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 admitted his side were lucky West Brom's penalty was chalked off, noting that he believed a similar call in an earlier Premier League game was wrong.

"I looked at a penalty this afternoon, Villa-Brighton and there's contact on the ball and then the man," Solskjaertold BT Sport.

"In my head it might be a penalty. Maybe here we're a tad lucky but none of them are given. Maybe the rules are different to how I interpret them."

Unsurprisingly, West Brom manager Bilic was a lot more scathing in his assessment of the decision to overturn a penalty for his side, who are yet to win in the Premier League this season.

"I'm very disappointed with the decision. I felt like 'small West Brom'. All those crucial decisions went against us. I've watched it a few times and it's a clear penalty. I don't understand why he overturned it," Bilic said.

"We played well. We had a few chances to score. We were there. I told the guys I'm disappointed, I think we deserved something.

"We deserved to go in front in the second half. I told them to stay positive and stay and fight and train and we'll win games."
