✅ NEW - car park, swimming pool, 24 hours light/security and more.
Manchester United had to twice come from behind before they could secure a 2-2 away at West Brom.

It was a game that was electric, not devoid of excitement as both teams showed their ability to go for the game

Stéphane Sessegnon opened the scores for his team, with West Brom's first shot on target, belting in Andre Wisdom's cross for the first goal.

With a visit of Chelsea this Sunday, Manchester United knew there shouldn't have been any margin of error for them knowing that they would be welcoming the best team in the league at the moment.

United nicked the possession in the match but they lacked the penetration to get behind a resolute West Brom defence.

Angel Di Maria forced a shot that Boaz Myhill did well to parry out,but that was as good as they got in the first half.

However they found an equaliser, surprisingly through Maroune Fellaini who levelled for them in the second half.

And while they were pressing for a goal, West Brom capitalized on Man Utd's high line to punish them.

Saido Berahino dashed in and curled in a second goal for the host team .

United pressed and Robin Van Persie struck the post after terrific control and a volley from outside the area.

They were made to wait till the last five minutes of the game when Daley Blind curled in a perfect shot outside the box to level.

United will see this as an opportunity missed to get all three points, because with Chelsea coming to town on Sunday, you never might know what is in the offing.

I fail to see how Man Utd was humbled...the performance wasn't awful...except for a couple of defensive errors which led to the two goals..Utd could've scored more goals..they had enough chances..
