Team news

Grady Diangana is likely to remain sidelined for West Brom‘s clash with Manchester United despite returning to training.   The winger has missed the last seven games with a hamstring problem and boss Sam Allardyce confirmed he needs more time to get match fit.

Second-from-bottom takes on second-from-top in the Premier League this weekend when West Bromwich Albion welcome Manchester United to The Hawthorns.  The Baggies now find themselves 11 points adrift of safety with their survival hopes fading quickly, while Man United have fallen five points behind leaders Manchester City at the other end of the table.Sitting second in the Premier League table after 23 games will have already surpassed most people’s expectations for Man United this season, but if they have ambitions of aiming even higher and catching Manchester City then games like Sunday’s will be crucial.

With third-placed Leicester City facing fourth-placed Liverpool on Saturday there will be an opportunity for Man United to extend their lead over at least one of the teams directly below them in the table, and there is no doubt that they will travel to The Hawthorns as firm favourites to come away with all three points.  Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have lost just one of their last 17 league outings and are in particularly good form away from home, with no team picking up more points on their travels than the Red Devils, who also boast the only unbeaten away record in the top flight this term.

Indeed, Man United’s unbeaten away run now stretches back a club-record 18 games spanning more than a year, although that streak may be tested more stringently in upcoming trips to face Chelsea and Manchester City. Before then, the Red Devils face struggling pair West Brom and Newcastle United in the league, coupled with Europa League games against Real Sociedad, so the next fortnight or so could be crucial to their hopes of picking up silverware this season.

Manchester United return to Premier League action this Sunday, when we travel to the Hawthorns to face West Bromwich Albion. The Reds suffered frustration in our most recent top-flight game, when we conceded a late equaliser to Everton to draw 3-3 at Old Trafford, having twice led in the match.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men bounced back on Tuesday by reaching the last eight of the Emirates FA Cup at West Ham United’s expense, thanks to an injury-time winner from Scott McTominay.
Now United will look to build further on our strong start to the 2020/21 Premier League, by gaining all three points against the Baggies.   Ahead of Sunday’s match, here’s all the key information you need to know…
