Match action from Old Trafford
ALBION secured a famous 1-0 victory at Manchester United to make it back-to-back wins at Old Trafford for the first time since 1959.
Jonas Olsson was credited with the 63rd-minute winner after Chris Brunt’s drilled free-kick deflected off the back of his leg as he stood in the wall, wrong-footing United goalkeeper David De Gea.
But victory was only secured after the superb Boaz Myhill produced a marvellous parried save to keep out Robin van Persie’s penalty, given when Saido Berahino was adjudged to have handled inside the area soon after.
It secured an historic success against the most decorated club in English football - just a season after Berahino scored the winner in a 2-1 triumph on United soil.
Resilient Albion’s hard-working and organised approach paid dividends in front of the 75,454 present as they proved difficult to break down, epitomised by Claudio Yacob in the middle of the park.
Victory took the Throstles on to the magical 40-point mark for this Barclays Premier League season and achieved the aim set out by head coach Tony Pulis when he took over the reins in early January.
