Pogba penalties save points for Man Utd
Manchester United beat West Ham 2-1 in the Premier League on Saturday to go above Arsenal into fifth, with Paul Pogba scoring two penalties.
The first half was defined by contentious refereeing decisions, with Felipe Anderson’s 10th-minute goal incorrectly ruled out for offside before Man Utd were awarded a questionable penalty not long after, which Pogba converted in the 17th minute.
Anderson deservedly got West Ham back on level terms four minutes after the break, before Ryan Fredericks brought down Anthony Martial in the 79th minute for United’s second penalty of the game, which Pogba also powered home.
The win sees Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side go above Arsenal into fifth spot, with the Gunners playing Watford on Monday night, while West Ham have lost their third successive Premier League game and remain in 11th.
