STAR PREVIEW West Brom v Man Utd

first_img[dropcap]T[/dropcap]oday’s Premier League fixtures rather have a look of after the Lord Mayor’s Show after yesterday’s drama.For all Man U have been criticised this season – the failings of other teams around them suddenly makes their position of fifth in the table with solid prospects of a Champions League place look much more palatable to the Old Trafford faithful.Today’s rivals, West Brom, haven’t yet hit the ‘magic’ 40 points but look safe enough in mid-table.I can’t help but to think back to 2013 when this pair fought out a 5-5 (FIVE-FIVE !!) draw thriller when Man U were 3-1 up at half-time.In the five games since then West Brom have won twice (including at Old Trafford last season) and drawn one, so this could again be tough.The Baggies are without Chris Brunt and defender Jonny Evans is still missing with a hamstring injury.For Man U Michael Carrick is expected to return after being rested midweek and Chris Smalling could be back from a shoulder injury.West Brom v Man UtdPremier League16:00 Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HDHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Nov 2015 PREMIER Man Utd 2-0 West BromMay 2015 PREMIER Man Utd 0-1 West BromOct 2014 PREMIER West Brom 2-2 Man UtdMar 2014 PREMIER West Brom 0-3 Man UtdSep 2013 PREMIER Man Utd 1-2 West BromMay 2013 PREMIER West Brom 5-5 Man UtdDec 2012 PREMIER Man Utd 2-0 West BromMar 2012 PREMIER Man Utd 2-0 West BromAug 2011 PREMIER West Brom 1-2 Man UtdJan 2011 PREMIER West Brom 1-2 Man UtdTime for that horrible overused ‘M’ word – momentum – but it really appears to be with Man U at present and I am happy to be backing them to be in front at both HT and FT at around 9/4 with Star Sports.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-100 points)BACK MAN U / MAN U for 8 points at around 9/4 with Star SportsSaturday: -12.00 pointsWhat’s your view?
