Team News

  • Wayne Rooney will remain sidelined until the New Year with a knee injury, with Nani and Anderson also unlikely to return until January.
  • Shinji Kagawa is lacking fitness and will be eased back into action, while Rafael remains a doubt with a hamstring injury and Danny Welbeck is suffering from an illness, but should be fit to feature.
  • Vidic and Jones could return to the back four with Ferguson ready to shuffle the defence having conceded three goals to Newcastle, while Lindegaard could also come into contention.
  • The likes of Popov, Mulumbu and Olsson all picked up knocks against QPR and could all miss out, with Ridgewell regaining his place at left-back, Tamas partnering McAuley in the centre and Dorrans starting in midfield.
  • Shane Long may replace Lukaku up front after the teenager failed to strike last time out but elsewhere changes are likely to be kept to a minimum after the win.
  • Peter Odemwingie will hope for chance to start on the wing ahead of Fortune or Gera but may have to sit on the bench again this weekend.

Prediction

  • Manchester United have never lost to West Brom in the 12 Premier League encounters between the sides but the Baggies are back in the swing of things having won three of their last five away games.
  • United have only kept two clean sheets at home this season, conceding 13 goals in 9 games at Old Trafford and this certainly won't be a walk in the park either against a West Brom side that have only failed to score on their travels twice.
  • Goals should be assured in this one then, and while Steve Clarke has his side organised at home they have conceded too many goals away from the Hawthorns, so United should come out on top.

  • Shinji Kagawa completed 30/31 passes. 97% pass completion. Impressive return from injury. Kagawa no doubt was the most standout player together with Vidic. whoscored.com always as pathetic as ever. Useless site

  • This website is pretty strange sometimes with it's ratings. I think both Cleverley and Kagawa deserve better ratings than what this site shows.

  • i think WBA impressive this season, but i think they have some tired legs now, they are slowing down, if Lukaku starts, I think he has good chance to score. 2-1 Man U.

  • Hey guys, what about Over 3.5? I think here will super fight, but Devils must win. My forecast 3:1 or 4:2 Can bet WBA to score:) Why not?

  • 3-1 Man U Win

  • i see nothing but a nothing but a man u win

  • 2-0 in first time

  • WBA win 3-1

  • 4-3 to united, they make it this score on purpose to make match of the day alot better.

  • We are waiting for you! Ouhh and WBA don't wake up the (red) devils it's better for you! xD 3-1 or a 5-3 who knows?? :))
