Manchester United’s faltering Premier League title challenge suffered another blow in a 1-1 draw at struggling West Brom as Wolves eased fears they could be drawn into a relegation scrap with a 2-1 win at Southampton on Sunday.
United have dropped points in five of their last seven league games to allow Manchester City to pull seven points clear, with a game in hand.

A point was enough to nudge Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men back above Leicester into second on goal difference.
But that was of little consolation to the Red Devils against a West Brom side that had conceded 24 goals in taking just one point from their previous seven home games.
United made the worst possible start when Conor Gallagher swung in a cross and Mbaye Diagne outmuscled Victor Lindelof to power home a header after just 80 seconds.
The visitors’ struggled to make the most of their dominance of the ball before half-time until Bruno Fernandes produced a moment of magic with a dipping volley on his weaker left foot a minute before half-time.
Wolves moved 15 points clear of the drop zone after coming from behind to continue Southampton’s miserable run with a 2-1 win.
