West Bromwich Albion Match Betting News

Tony Pulis had been starting to feel the heat recently but West Bromwich Albion claiming victories over Everton and Crystal Palace, as well as earning a credible draw away to leaders Leicester City has lifted the pressure off of the experienced manager’s shoulders.

Now West Brom seem to have enough points on the board to be able to avoid the drop this season but Pulis will surely be eyeing a place in the top half for the Baggies. Up next for West Brom is a clash against Manchester United and it will be interesting to see if Pulis’ men can continue their good run against the Red Devils.

Claudio Yacob will be unavailable for the clash due to suspension while the likes of Jonny Evans, Chris Brunt, Callum McManaman and James Morrison are all injury doubts.

Manchester United Match Betting News

From a state of doom and gloom not too long ago, Manchester United have suddenly enjoyed a wonderful revival and are currently on a four match winning run at the moment.

Louis van Gaal’s faith in the kids has most certainly paid off and with teams above them in the table faltering; the Red Devils certainly stand a good chance of earning a place in the Champions League.

Strange as it may sound, United remain underdogs for a top four finish though and the Red Devils should solely focus on continuing their good record with another victory when they square off against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

Marouane Fellaini, Wayne Rooney, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Luke Shaw, Ashley Young, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Phil Jones, Will Keane, Donald Love and Chris Smalling are all struggling with injuries at the moment.

West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester United Match Prediction

West Brom have lost only once in their last six encounters against Manchester United and given their fine form, the Baggies will have nothing to fear heading into Sunday’s encounter.

United are on a good run of their own but West Brom are a strong side at home and they should be able to hold the giants to a draw at the very least.
