Lukaku, Lingard Fire Man United Past Spirited West Brom

​Manchester United made it two wins in a row in the English Premier League on Sunday by defeating West Brom 2-1 at the Hawthorns. Goals from Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard gave United a two-goal lead into the break before Gareth Barry scored a consolation for the Baggies​ in the second half​.

The win saw Jose Mourinho’ side close the gap on rivals Manchester City back to 11 points and three points ahead of Chelsea in third​ position.​

The Red Devil’s now have 41 points from 18 EPL games while the Baggies ​who ​remain 19th in the table with 14 points from the same number of games​ are without a win in 16 games in the league​.

Manchester United made their attacking efforts count in the 27th minute when Lukaku headed in Marcus Rashford’s cross for opener. The goal was Lukaku’s 10th this season in the league.

The lead was doubled in the 35th minute with Lingard’s deflected shot off Egypt defender Ahmed Hegazi. The goal was Lingard’s seventh of the season, four in the EPL and three in other competitions​.

In the second half, West Brom manager brought on Barry for Claudio Yacob, Jay Rodriguez for Oliver Burke and Chris Brunt for Grzegorz Krychowiak but it was Manchester United who went close to making 3-0 with Rashford missing a chance.

The Baggies got their reward in the 77th minute when Barry tapped into a open net after United failed to clear their lines from a corner.

Rodriguez could have made it 2-2 but his firm header went inches wide off the upright from 12 yards.

Lukaku also missed a chance to wrap the game up in stoppage time.

Manchester United will face Leicester City in their next EPL game while West Brom travel to the Bet365 stadium to face Stoke City.
