Man United vs West Brom: Premier League preview

United faced Everton in their last game before the international break, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under heavy pressure following a poor run of form.

The Red Devils went a goal down at Goodison Park, but fought back to win 3-1 – and potentially save Solskjaer’s job in the process.

But the problem with this United side is consistency: getting results against struggles sides like Slaven Bilic’s West Brom has been a big problem and this game could be more tricky than it looks on paper.

Manchester United vs West Brom is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off on Saturday, November 21, 2020.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Old Trafford.

TV channel: The match will be televised on BT Sport 1, with coverage from 7:30pm.

Live stream: BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the video player and the BT Sport app.

United have a few injury concerns across the squad.

Anthony Martial and Victor Lindelof were both feeling back issues during the international break and will be assessed on Friday.

Marcus Rashford is recovering from a shoulder injury but should feature, while Mason Greenwood could be available.

Luke Shaw is out with a hamstring injury, meaning Alex Telles is likely to start at left-back.

Eric Bailly is another absentee, while Jesse Lingard is a doubt.

The Baggies will have Branislav Ivanovic, Matheus Pereira and Callum Robinson back after the trio tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this month.

However, Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Field are both out of action.

Predicted Man United lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Maguire, Telles; Van de Beek, McTominay, Fernandes; Cavani, Rashford, Martial

Prediction: Man United 1-0 West Brom

This is exactly the sort of game you’d expect United to struggle in – especially if Solskjaer deploys two holding midfielders and West Brom sit deep. Still, the hosts’ pressure should tell, and it’s be no surprise to see United collect three points – possibly off another Bruno Fernandes penalty.
