Man United vs West Brom, Premier League 2020-21, Match Preview

Manchester United will host struggling West Brom in Premier League 2020-21 to break their losing jinx at OId Trafford. West Brom is still searching for their first victory of the season, and United desperately needs three points to go above the table. 

Team Preview 

United is highly boosted after a 3-1 win away to Everton. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can relax now after the defeats to Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir. Before losing these two games, United was in good form as they overcame PSG and Leipzig in the Champions League, following a draw with Chelsea. The alternative success is hurting United’s campaign, and the most disappointing aspect of their campaign is the downfall at home. 

The Red Devils secured just one point at Old Trafford from a possible 12, and they are winless in their last six home matches. Solskjaer’s men conceded more home goals than any other team this season. This horror show can stop on Saturday as their task is against a side who hasn’t won a single game yet and occupy the spot in the relegation zone. 

Meanwhile, West Brom can surprise United as they have won three and lost only one of their last five Premier League at Old Trafford. The Baggies didn’t concede a single goal in three of their last four top-flight games at Old Trafford. The current form changes all the numbers. Baggies pick up only three points from their eight games since earning promotion back to the top flight. Slaven Bilic's side earned only three points and scored just once in the last five. They lost to Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur before the international break, which took them away in the relegation zone. 

Marcus Rashford is back in training after suffering from a shoulder injury, while Anthony Martial will be back after a back injury. Edinson Cavani is back after playing for Uruguay, but he missed the training, and he might be dropped. For West Brom, Branislav Ivanovic, Matheus Pereira, and Callum Robinson are returning to the squad. Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Field are expected to sit out due to injury.
