West Brom recorded a 2-1 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford this afternoon to heap more pressure on David Moyes. It is the first time West Brom have beaten United in the Premier League.
Morgan Amalfitano gave the Baggies the lead after 54 minutes but Wayne Rooney replied with a free-kick just minutes later. The Champions couldn’t kick on from the equaliser and West Brom won it thanks to a Saido Berahino strike with quarter of the game remaining.
It means Moyes has lost three of his opening six league games including the defeat to rivals Liverpool and the 4-1 thumping by Manchester City 4-1. It also means in five of those six games United have failed to score from open play.
It is bleak for United fans, and Twitter promptly had a meltdown after the game.
I wouldn't 1-2 be David Moyes right now…

Jones, Buttner, Rio, Anderson, Kagawa, are just not good enough for a top team. End of. Lucky to be in top 10 never mind top 4 #moyesout

This isn't all down to Moyes, the players are playing awful. Midfield still weak, and defence is shocking.

All those people who've been talking big about giving Moyes the time he needs; I hope you meant it. There will be lots more days like this.
