United went into the national break off an away 3-1 win against Middlesbrough. While the win was deserved it didn't come easy as Middlesbrough tested them on numerous occasions. United are 3rd on the form table only topped by City and Chelsea.
Though the side is undefeated in 18 league matches, 8 of these matches ended in a draw.
United find themselves 5th, 4 points behind rivals Liverpool who currently occupy 4th position, but they have 2 games in hand meaning that if they utilize the advantage they will finish in the top 4.
West Brom are currently 8th and look to set top finish the season with a club record position. They don't have any real threat behind them so they can play freely in a attempt to possibly secure a european spot. Before the national break ended West Brom bounced back from a 2 game losing streak by winning 3-1 against out of form Arsenal. They will certainly come into this match hoping to take something home as United have injury and suspensions issues. West Brom have a (1w,2d,2l) away record.
Tony Pulis is well aware of United's injury concerns as well as suspensions, and i will not be a surprise to to him set his squad up for the win. Mourinho on the other hand has adopted a 3-5-2 formation, in a na attempt to utilize 3 of his 4 inform center backs as well as balance the squad.
This is a match in which the home fans will be hoping to win as it will secure either a point increase to Arsenal in 5th or a gap close to City in 3rd, while as mentioned earlier pressing ahead for a 4 finish.
Judging by both sides recent performances and strengths, i expect this match to have goals in it. Teams always lift their levels against teams at United pedigree, and while West Brom have no worries either then maintaining or bettering their league position i expect them to test United.
Of United 14 home matches this season all but 3 have ended with at least 2 goals, while all but 4 of West Broms 14 league matches away from home have ended with less then 2 goals.
