West Brom vs Man Utd
Utd travel to The Hawthorns in what should be a cracking Monday Night Football encounter.
West Brom come into tonight’s game on a somewhat good run of form. Their last home game was a fantastic attacking display, beating Burnley 4-0. They played some good football last time out also, in a 2-1 away loss at Liverpool. Their young attacked Saido Berahino is in fine form, with six goals in nine competitive appearances for West Brom this season, five of these coming at the Hawthorns.
Man Utd’s away form has been very poor, without a win in their last 3 league games, including the capitulation at Leicester and two poor draws at Burnley & Sunderland. However, the latter two games Utd were without Falcao, and Di Maria was not fully fit on his debut at Burnley. Di Maria has been a revelation for the Utd side, opening up defences at will, highlighted by having a part in 6 goals in his 5 league games (3 goals and 3 assists).
Expecting Utd to have too much attacking prowess for the likes of Lescott & Dawson. Utd cannot afford to drop anymore points especially at places like West Brom and there may well be goals at both ends, but we’re backing Utd for the 3 points.
Prediction – West Brom 1-3 Man Utd
The Pick – Man Utd to win – 4/5 – 1.80
Worth a flutter – RVP anytime goalscorer – 7/5 – 2.40
