Manchester United head to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, looking to regain second place in the Premier League table. Leicester City jumped over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team with their late win over Liverpool on Saturday, but the Red Devils will move back into the top two with a point or better here.
United are just one goal short of 50 for the season as the league’s top scorers this season, though they have been inconsistent of late winning only one of their last four in the top flight. Last time out in the league they drew 3-3 with Everton after a last-minute equaliser, which saw criticism head the way of goalkeeper David de Gea.
West Brom remain hugely struggling in the relegation zone, conceding with regularity and with just two wins to their name all season long. The brief optimism felt after beating Wolves seems a long time ago, having lost to Spurs last time out.

West Brom have almost a full squad to choose from, though Karlan Grant did pick up a knock last week so could be absent.
United are without Paul Pogba and long-term absentee Phil Jones, while Eric Bailly is a doubt. There have been calls for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to start Dean Henderson in goal here after David De Gea’s recent errors.
West Brom XI: Johnstone, Peltier, Ajayi, Bartley, Townsend, Yokuslu, Snodgrass, Maitland-Niles, Gallagher, Costa Pereira, Diagne
Man United XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw, Fred, McTominay, Rashford, Bruno, Martial, Cavani
West Brom’s defensive work hasn’t been impressive of late and it’s unlikely that they’ll keep out United’s first-choice attack. Baggies 1-3 United.
