Manchester United will take on West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League at The Hawthorns on Monday.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 8pm BST. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Radio commentary of the match will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Overview

West Brom saw their three-match unbeaten run end before the international break as the Baggies suffered a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield. So far this season, Alan Irvine's side have been impressive at home and have lost only one match in all competitions.

However, on the downside, West Brom have managed only one clean sheet in the process. Irvine is aware that it is vital to stop United's ruthless attack when his side face the 20-times English champions on Monday.

Meanwhile, Louis van Gaal is still in search of his first away win as United manager and the Dutchman would be hoping for a win when his side take on West Brom in the league clash.

After the end of the summer transfer window, United have looked sharp while going forward and have struggled while defending. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager will welcome two first choice centre-backs Phil Jones and Chris Smalling from injury.

In addition to this, Michael Carrick is also fit for the West Brom clash. It should be seen whether Van Gaal will start the England international or Ander Herrera alongside Daley Blind in the midfield.

What Managers Say

Alan Irvine: "Chris Brunt was the only one who came back with a problem but we're hopeful. He came back early and fortunately that gave us time to work with him."

Louis van Gaal: "West Bromwich Albion are difficult to beat, also at home. They play not only long balls but can play a possession game so it's not easy to beat. There's no club in the Premier League that is easy to beat. That's the difference from other leagues I think."
