West Brom vs Manchester United Prediction & Match Preview

West Brom vs Manchester United
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 14 February 2021
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns.

Manchester United will be aiming to melt Manchester City’s advantage in the Premier League standings when they take on WBA at the Hawthorns on Saturday. 


The Red Devils have been scoring goals for fun of late, but they dropped two points in a 3-3 draw with Everton. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops are determined to keep their title hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at WBA on Matchday 24.

Paul Pogba misses the match with a thigh injury, while defender Eric Bailly should recover in time to face the Baggies. 

WBA, on the other hand, have slim chances of securing the Premier League survival. 

Sam Allardyce’s troops have been struggling at the back of late, and given Man Utd’s attacking potential, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. Sam Allardyce has a full squad to choose from as midfielder Diangana has recovered from his injury.

Team News:

Manchester United are expected to welcome a host of big names back into their starting XI for this match, including Bruno Fernandes.

The Portuguese playmaker has scored 13 goals and created nine more in the Premier League this season, leaving him just one assist away from becoming only the fourth Man United player to reach double figures for both in a single campaign.

Edinson Cavani should lead the line again as he looks to net for a third successive league game, while Tuesday's match-winner McTominay may have also earned himself another start after netting his seventh goal of the campaign.

David de Gea and Luke Shaw will also expect to be recalled to the starting lineup, while Marcus Rashford, who has six goals and five assists away from home this season, should keep his place.

Eric Bailly could be back in contention after narrowly missing out on the midweek FA Cup match, and Solskjaer must decide whether to stick with Victor Lindelof alongside Harry Maguire at the heart of the defence.

Paul Pogba remains out for the visitors, though, while Phil Jones is a long-term absentee.

Grady Diangana is West Brom's only injury concern and he is now back in training, although this match will come too soon for the winger.

January arrival Okay Yokuslu could be brought in for his first start after making his debut off the bench last weekend, and he will likely be joined by fellow new recruit Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Matheus Pereira has been the main man for West Brom in terms of goals recently, netting half of the 10 the Baggies have scored under Allardyce across all competitions.

West Bromwich Albion possible starting lineup:
Johnstone; Furlong, Ajayi, Bartley, Gibbs; Snodgrass, Yokuslu, Maitland-Niles, Gallagher; Pereira; Diagne

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani
