Lukaku, Lingard give Man United victory at West Brom

Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard were on target as Manchester United defeated West Brom 2-1 on Sunday to move back to 11 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Lukaku opened the scoring with a header in the 27th minute before Lingard doubled their lead eight minutes later with a shot that deflected off West Brom’s Ahmed Hegazi.

The Red Devils appeared to be heading for a comfortable win until Albion substitute Gareth Barry poked home from close range on 77 minutes.

West Brom remain winless under manager Alan Pardew, and have outrightly gone a club-record 17 games without a win.

Despite their efforts during the game and some pressure piled up towards the end, the Baggies could not add to their first goal in four games as the loss keeps them second from bottom.

Jose Mourinho’s men will be playing next on Wednesday against Bristol City in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.
