However, United ’ s second - half pressure finally paid off nine minutes from time after the introduction of Paul pogba from the substitute been, as he made a return from injury that has kept him at Bay from featuring in most of the previous outing. Fernandes converted from the spot after Paul Pogba had been brought down in the box .

Bruno Fernandes also thought he had won a second penalty , but a VAR review decided there was minimal contact as he went down under a challenge from Eric Dier too easily

In the end they had to settle for a stalemate, sharing the spoil of the share.However, point does little for either side ’s chances of breaking into the top four with Chelsea having a game in hand and also wolves, Sheffield United in the chasing pack behind them with just a point apiece
