Manchester United will be looking to continue their long unbeaten run away from home whilst Sunday’s hosts will be looking to get a result that could breed the confidence needed to make a miraculous escape from relegation as these two sides meet on Sunday afternoon.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking for a big improvement from his sides’ performance in last Tuesday’s 1-0 win over West Ham in the FA Cup fifth round, a game in which extra time was needed to get past David Moyes’ side.
West Brom currently sit 19th in the Premier League, only a point ahead of bottom side Sheffield United, with the Baggies having conceded 17 more goals in this campaign. Sam Allardyce will be hoping they can put on a good display and pick up three points at home for the first time as West Brom manager.Embed from Getty Images
The home side have never recorded a home victory against the Red Devils, with United running out winners nine times out of the last 12 occasions this fixture has taken place. A win for Solskjaer’s side will seal the first Premier League double against West Brom in eight years, with the last taking place in the 2011/12 campaign.
Solskjaer confirmed that Paul Pogba is still unavailable for selection following the thigh injury he sustained in their 3-3 draw at home to Everton. Eric Bailly has been training with the side but is unlikely to feature in Sunday’s game.
The hosts could be without winger Grady Diangana, who has been sidelined since January 2nd, after sustaining an injury in their 3-1 defeat to Arsenal.
Prediction: West Brom 1-3 Man United
