Manchester United will be looking to continue their push for the top four when they take on West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

United will be looking to extend their 18-game unbeaten run in the league with the Red Devils last defeat coming with a 4-0 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge way back in October.

However, despite that run, Jose Mourinho’s men still find themselves sitting outside the top four as they trail fourth-placed Liverpool by four points – although United do hold two games in hand.

West Brom head to Old Trafford off the back of an impressive 3-1 win over Arsenal before the international break which saw them remain eighth in the table on to 43 points for the season.

Team News

United will continue to be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the striker serves the final of his three-game ban meaning Marcus Rashford is expected to lead the line up front.

Ander Herrera is also still suspended while Paul Pogba has been ruled out with a hamstring injury so Marouane Fellaini could join Michael Carrick in midfield after overcoming a minor toe injury.

Mourinho has problems in defence as Phil Jones and Chris Smalling both picked up serious injuries while away with the England squad so Eric Bailly is expected to be partnered by Marcos Rojo at the back.

Wayne Rooney is back in contention after recovering from a knee injury but I think a place on the bench is the best he can hope for.

West Brom will hand a late fitness test to Nacer Chadli after he picked up a shoulder injury during the international break but the attacker is likely to be passed fit.

Salomon Rondon will be assessed ahead of the game after returning back late from South America but Matt Phillips remains out with a hamstring injury.

Likely Line-Ups

Predicted Score

Man Utd 2-0 West Brom: The Baggies have a decent recent record against United having won two of their last three visits to Old Trafford but Mourinho’s men have been grinding out results and I fancy them to get all three points tomorrow. As long as United can keep West Brom out from set pieces, I think they’ll ease to a 2-0 win.
