Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion Match Preview
Manchester United will likely be confident yet wary as they prepare to meet West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford on Saturday. Two weeks ago the Baggies shocked Arsenal and the English football world when they beat the Gunners handily at Emirates Stadium. They were unable to sustain their momentum against Bolton last time out, however, and could only manage a share of the points with a 1-1 draw.
United haven’t gotten into their stride yet. A 0-0 draw with Sunderland last week resulted in a drop to third in the league table, a point behind 2nd place Manchester City.
Saturday’s match may witness the long-awaited return of midfielder Owen Hargreaves to the United set-up. Hargreaves has been out for two years due to acute tendinitis in the knees.
United haven’t lost yet this season, but with four draws and only three wins from their seven matches they haven’t yet concocted a winning formula either.
West Brom meanwhile sit in sixth place with 11 points thus far, just two behind United.
