With only eleven games remaining in the season, this is an important fixture for both sides, especially for the Red Devils, who trail rivals City, currently in the first position, by just two points. The last meeting between these two teams was at the opening week of the Premier League in August, where Manchester United just narrowly managed to defeat the Baggies by two goals to one.
Manchester United, who have been doing well this season, come after three back-to-back victories against Liverpool, Norwich City and Tottenham in the Premier League. However, they have had two successive home defeats against Ajax and Athletic Bilbao in the Europa League. The Red Devils, who have been plagued by many injuries, will try to win this one by hook or by crook.
On the other hand, West Brom also come after three back-to-back victories against the Wolves, Sunderland and Chelsea (who they managed to stun with a 1-0 defeat). The Baggies, who finished the Premier League at the 11th position last season, will be trying to better their position this year.
Manchester United probable team: De Gea; Fabio, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra; Nani, Carrick, Scholes, Young; Welbeck, Rooney.
West Bromwich Albion probable team: Foster; Jones, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell; Andrews, Mulumbu; Odemwingie, Morrison, Brunt; Fortune.
