Manchester United vs Westbrom
Manchester United appeared to have turned the corner before the international break pegged them back, they can pick up from where they started off and what other opponent would they have wished for?
Westbrom aren’t looking like a team that want to be here next season, they actually lack the squad depth and quality to compete but they can punch above their weight and if they can score three against Chelsea, who says they can’t against United?
Westbrom have just one mission, to survive the relegation battle, one they will fight till the very end as they currently sit among the bottom three, Slaven Bilic tops the odds for the first manager to be fired and from the look of things, he won’t be proving the bookies wrong.
Manchester United are odds on to win this one but they are yet to win a home game this season, despite having fixtures they should be winning, they have failed to come out tops at Old Trafford and that is something to worry about.
Despite all the chaos and inconsistencies, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer appears to be comfortable in the dugout but for how long before fans turn on him again? He has a way of winning when the chips are down and the 3-1 success away at Everton confirms that.
The Baggies didn’t have much players away on international duty and that should be an advantage with almost every of United’s first eleven away at their respective national sides, it would be left to be seen if Westbrom can exploit the fatigue that comes with back to back games and travels.
Manchester United will probably hand a starting role to Edison Cavani who registered his first goal at the tail end of the win at Goodison Park and also find a way to accommodate Donny Van De Beek, Paul Pogba appears fresh with his showing for Le Bleus but balance is key.
It will be a very long night for Slaven Bilic and Co, they won’t see more of the ball but if they can maintain shape, defended deep and attempt brave counter attacks, they can shock United especially with the fact that they can’t seem to find their rhythm at Old Trafford.
