United come into this fixture after managing a 1-0 victory over CSKA Moscow in the Champions League clash at home. Prior to the clash, Red Devils have gone without scoring in three matches played in all competitions.

Wayne Rooney's second-half goal saw Louis van Gaal end his side's poor run and they clinched a first win in four matches played in all competitions. At the same time, United have kept clean sheets in all these four matches.

West Brom enter this fixture after a disappointing 3-2 defeat at the hands of Leicester City at the Hawthorns. After taking a lead, Tony Pulis's side gave away the lead and were not allowed to make a comeback by the Foxes as they walked away with three points.

In the last five matches played in all competitions, West Brom have managed only two wins and the other three matches have ended in a defeat. Pulis will be hoping his side can bounce back when they face against United.

What managers say

Louis van Gaal: "I'm not deaf. That's the opinion of the fans but afterwards they shall not be disappointed. I'm very happy because I put Rooney again in the striker's position and he scored."

Tony Pulis: "I'm disappointed with myself for my reaction after the game. A few things disappointed me. I've got to take the blame for waiting for the ref after the game. The decisions in the game were poor decisions. It's very tough to take in that moment. With my experience I shouldn't have waited for the ref to ask why he's not given the penalties."
