West Brom went ahead in the second minute, when Mbaye Diagne headed in Conor Gallagher’s cross for his first Premier League goal.
Fernandes pulled the game back for United a minute before half-time when Luke Shaw crossed the ball into the box. Despite being surrounded by West Brom players Fernandes hooked the ball with his left foot and into the top corner of the net.
But the Baggies needed a magnificent Johnstone save to secure a point, as he tipped Harry Maguire’s header on to the post in the final minute of stoppage time.
Man Utd move up to second with 46 points but they lost ground this weekend on Manchester City, who are seven points clear with a match in hand.
“Of course we are [still in the title race],” Harry Maguire said after the game. “We have to go again and win the next one and then the next one.
“We created a lot of chances — enough to win the game.
“It was tough for ourselves with the goal we conceded, for us, it was a foul.
“We played the game in their half. We can do more and improve but it’s disappointing. It was a tough job against a team that defends deep.”
