United hold on to edge West Brom

Manchester United withstood late pressure from West Brom to seal a 2-1 victory after first-half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard.  Lukaku's superb header against his former employers sent United on their way (27) before a deflected Lingard strike (35) put them in control before half-time.  Gareth Barry tapped in West Brom's first goal in more than six hours of football (77) to ensure a frantic finish at the Hawthorns, but United clung on for a sixth league win in seven games.
