After the international break, the English Premier League returns this weekend, with Manchester United hosting West Bromwich this Saturday. West Bromwich is known to be struggling at the 18th position on the table. Meanwhile, Manchester United are sitting 4 places above them at the 14th position which is surprising enough. They are the clear favorites according to bookmakers.
On one side, The Red Devils will be looking to continue their winning streak that started the last match. They won 3-1 over Everton, so they will be coming into this match with more confidence and a morale boost. Though their impressive campaign in the Champions League, defeating both PSG and RB Leipzig, they have not been doing well here. In their last 5 matches in all competitions, they recorded 2W-2D-1L, with a remarkable win of 5-0 over Leipzig. Four players will be absent due to injuries, they include Jones, Shaw, Lingard, and Bailly. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial remain doubtful. This may affect Man. Utd. but the future of their coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will depend on their performance. Therefore, United will do their best to win this game.
On the other hand, Bromwich is one of the 3 teams of this season to look for their first victory. Together with Burnley and Sheffield at the second-to-the-last and last positions respectively, Bromwich still hasn’t won a match. In their last 5 matches in all competitions, the Baggies recorded 2 draws and 3 losses. Out of these 5 matches, they have failed to score in 4 of them. In addition, they have a good defence as they concede a low number of goals per match. This can be shown in their last match against Tottenham, where they conceded only 1 goal. Kanu, Zohorè, and Field will be absent due to injuries.
All in all, Manchester United’s form has been fluctuating and they have a number of injured players. However, they are strong enough to win this game. In their last 5 head-to-head matches, we have 2 wins for Manchester United, 1 draw, and 2 wins for Bromwich. Nevertheless, I will go for a home win with the Asian Handicap -1.5 which has a good value in my eyes. The odds are around 1.99 and a Draw no bet in favor of Manchester United is a safer bet.
