Match Preview : West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester United

West Brom’s 3-1 win over Swansea on Wednesday has lifted them up to seventh in the league and just four points behind Saturday’s opponents Manchester United.

They are flying at the moment and have scored 10 goals in their last three home games. In fact, since the start of November only Chelsea (18) have won more points than the Baggies (13).

Manchester United secured back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since August with a dramatic 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday night and they must now turn their attentions to recording their win in three away to West Brom. Place your bet on

Jose Mourinho’s side are better equipped to deal with the festive period and the quick run of games could work in their favour ahead of this very tough match.

West Bromwich Albion – Jonny Evans missed their 3-1 win over Swansea in midweek through injury and he is a doubt to face off against his former side here. Craig Dawson has served his one-match ban but may not get back into the side with Nyom and Chris Brunt options at full-back.

They secured a win at Sunderland in this fixture last season, though had lost their three previous league visits to the Stadium of Light.

Both teams will look to return to winning ways in what could be a cagey affair that may result in a draw. Place your bet on
