Paul Merson Makes His Prediction For Manchester United’s Game At West Brom

By on March 5, 2016

Paul Merson has made his prediction ahead of Manchester United’s visit to the Hawthorns to take on West Bromwich Albion on Sunday afternoon.

United head to the Midlands tomorrow looking to continue their excellent recent form having secured their fourth consecutive victory in all competitions with a 1-0 win over Watford at Old Trafford in midweek.

That victory saw United move level on points with fourth-placed Manchester City in the Premier League table so Louis van Gaal will be hoping to secure another win at West Brom in order to boost their Champions League qualification hopes.

And with United on a roll, former Arsenal winger Paul Merson is tipping the Red Devils to continue their recent form with another hard fought 2-1 win over the Baggies tomorrow afternoon.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Merson said:

Man Utd have turned the corner and sometimes you just need a little bit of luck. I thought they were lucky against Watford, who had a couple of chances and probably two months ago they would have scored and come away with a 2-0 win and everybody would have been booing. But they score in the last five minutes and everybody goes home happy, they are on a roll.

Man City have just opened up the possibility of Champions League qualification for everybody, so instead of Liverpool and Man Utd looking forward to the Europa League on Thursday, these are now bigger football matches. And if you had said that three weeks ago, I would have said: ‘No chance.’

But I am going to for Man Utd 2-1 as I think they are rolling now.


We’ll have to wait and see whether Merson’s prediction proves to be accurate, but a win for United would see them keep pace with rivals Manchester City – who are heavy favourites to beat relegation-bound Aston Villa at home today.
