Manchester United suffered a shock defeat to an inspired West Bromwich Albion side at Old Trafford, leaving questions to be asked of David Moyes.
West Bromwich Albion deepened the gloom around new Manchester United manager David Moyes with a sensational 2-1 win at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday.
A week on from their 4-1 derby humiliation at Manchester City, United were looking to return to winning ways in the league but instead slumped to a defeat that left the champions in 12th place in the table.
On-loan Marseille winger Morgan Amalfitano put West Brom ahead with an exquisite individual goal in the 54th minute, picking the ball up on halfway and nutmegging Rio Ferdinand before insouciantly dinking the ball over goalkeeper David de Gea.
Wayne Rooney equalised three minutes later, with a free-kick from wide on the left that eluded everyone, only for 20-year-old midfielder Saido Berahino to restore West Brom’s lead with a fierce left-foot drive.
Steve Clarke’s side held on for victory, to leave Moyes with a dismal return of three defeats, one draw and only two victories from his first six league matches since succeeding the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson at the United helm.
