Man Utd v West Brom Betting Preview
Morale must be high in the United camp after their come-from-behind victory against fierce rivals Manchester City to prevent them for winning the premier league title, for the time at least. José Mourinho has come under criticism for his teams style of play, and rightly so in some regard but ultimately they’re 2nd in the league ahead of Liverpool and Spurs who have received a number of plaudits. A lot of their good work has been done at Old Trafford, Mourinho’s ‘get the job done’ mantra has proved successful in terms of results albeit not always pleasing on the eye.
9 of United’s wins at home this season have included fewer than 4 goals and this fits in with Mourinho’s ideology, get 2 goals up and see the game out. We can backed Man United to win and under 3.5 goals at even money and that looks a sensible angle.
West Brom have their fate all but sealed as they sleepwalk into the championship. Their underlying stats aren’t all that bad but they’ve seemed to lose their identity and going through managers as much as they have has led to a lack of consistency. Darren Moore is in caretaker charge and he will look to make them hard to break down and put on a respectable performance.
Romelu Lukaku has recovered from illness and is back in contention, Sergio Romero remains sidelined.
West Brom could welcome back Sam Field, Daniel Sturridge and Nacer Chadli back from injury.
Potential Man Utd Starting XI: De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Young, Matic, Pogba, Mata, Sanchez, Lingard, Lukaku.
