Manchester United vs West Brom Live
West Brom vs Manchester United Live/ Man United vs West Brom Live/ Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion /Manchester United are trying to put together another good run of form, with two straight wins before the international break and a slowly improving Premier League position. They’re in fifth place right now, and while they’re four back of fourth-place Liverpool, a win here against visiting West Bromwich Albion could potentially see them pull closer to the top four, and further clear sixth-place Arsenal.
Tony Pulis and West Brom are a tough team to beat, though, coming off a big 3-1 win over Arsenal just before the break. They’ve been a very inconsistent team this season, but when they’re motivated and playing well, they have the ability to beat any team in the league.
But this match is being played at Old Trafford, a site where Manchester United have lost only once this season, and that was all the way back in early September. They’ve only so much as dropped points in draws four times in their last fifteen home matches, though it is fair to point out that Manchester were expected to win all four of those matches. As long as Jose Mourinho can keep his team focused, though, this is going to be a very difficult match for West Bromwich to get an upset.
West Bromwich Albion are quite healthy, with three players in doubt for the match but all potentially available: Nacer Chadli, Gareth McAuley, and Matt Phillips. Manchester United are in rougher shape, with Paul Pogba, Wayne Rooney, Chris Smalling, and Phil Jones all out, and utility midfielder Marouane Fellaini a doubt with a toe injury, plus Ander Herrera is suspended. They have better depth than they once did, but that’s still a lot of talent to be missing.Manchester United’s season reaches its final furlong on Saturday when Tony Pulis brings his West Bromwich Albion side to Old Trafford, yet the prospect of 16 more games in the last seven-and-a-half weeks of the campaign means that Jose Mourinho’s men still have a hell of a lot of work to do before their summer break.
With a Champions League spot still up for grabs in both the Premier League top-four race and the Europa League, in which United have progressed to the quarter-final stage, the final verdict on their season is still far from being reached. They may well have already secured a Community Shield and EFL Cup double, but the lack of Champions League football for a third time in four years would mark the 2016-17 campaign down as another failure.

Saturday gives United the chance to set the tone for the rest of the season, with a victory propelling them ever-closer to the pack at the top of the league 24 hours ahead of a clash between Arsenal and Manchester City which will hand a setback to at least one of United’s rivals for the top four positions.
