United come into this game after a 1-0 win against Liverpool in the midweek Capital One Cup third round at Old Trafford.

Javier Hernandez's brilliant flick from Wayne Rooney's corner after the start of the second half was sufficient for the Red Devils to progress to the last 16 of the competition. In the last league fixture, United suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat at the hands of their local rivals Manchester City.

The defeat against City was United's second defeat of the season, the first being a 1-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield. United are eighth in the table with seven points from five games.

Meanwhile, the Baggies enter this game after losing the Capital One Cup tie on penalties at home to Arsenal. Thomas Eisfeld gave the Gunners the lead before Saido Berahino equalised for Steve Clarke's side. The 1-1 draw in normal time forced the game into a goalless extra time, leaving the tie decided on penalties, which West Brom lost 3-4. The visitors have one win in the first five games and are 14th in the league table with five points.

What The Managers Say

David Moyes: "I would hope you would have known the type of reaction you would get from the players at this club. They were hurt by the defeat and were determined to put it right. I hope they show the supporters again tomorrow. They did not enjoy the City result and we will try and make sure it doesn't happen again."

Steve Clarke: "I never understand why people would ask a professional whether they're going to win or not. As a professional, I think I'm going to win every single game I go into. If I don't think that, how can I convince the players? And I hope every player I've got goes to Old Trafford with the same feeling as me that we can win."
