    West Brom v Man United: LIVE!

    Probable Lineups:

    manunited westbromWest Bromwich Albion (4-4-2): Foster, Reid, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell, Yacob, Mulumbu, Morrison, Brunt, Anichebe, Thievy.

    Anelka continue his absense as he is serving his 5 game ban due to his ‘quenelle’ gesture celebration after grabbing a goal against West Ham.  The Baggies are looking to end a seven game winless streak, but come up against tough opposition in the form of the current EPL champions, albeit not in the best of form.  Pepe Mel’s side however have a mental edge as they’ve beaten the Red Devils at Old Trafford earlier this year.

    Manchester United (4-4-1-1): De Gea, Rafael, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Carrick, Fellaini, Mata, Valencia, Rooney, van Persie.

    Rafael could return to action following his head injury to slot in at right back with Jonny Evans and Phil Jones still carrying an injury and should be considered doubtful.  The Manchester side have underwhelmed this season and will need to collect the three points if they have any chance of making it to a 4th place finish.  They will look to the attacking trio of Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata, and Robin Van Persie to fire in the goals.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    In Ferguson’s last game in charge of the Red Devils, they played out an epic 5-5 draw at the Hawthorns.  Let’s hope it happens again!

    With four goals in five appearances for the Dutch striker, Robin van Persie is finding the net as of late. United will need all the wins they can get, so expect the two golden boot winner to be at his best.
