Manchester United vs West Brom: Probable XI, prediction and result

Manchester United return to English Premier League action on Saturday night, with their West Brom clash nothing like as straightforward as it seems on paper.

Fortress Old Trafford is no more, with the Red Devils spluttering their way through the season so far.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under the pump with his side 14th in the EPL table going into the weekend.

They did at least pick up an impressive win to sign off for the international break, coming good to the tune of a 3-1 success away at Everton two weeks ago.

There is a headache at left back thanks to Luke Shaw’s injury and Alex Telles? long haul back from Brazil, meaning Brandon Williams could make his first appearance of the campaign.

Anthony Martial is doubtful up front as is Marcus Rashford, who pulled out of England duty with a shoulder problem.

Victor Lindelof could also be absent at the back, with Axel Tuanzebe on standby to deputise.

West Brom are winless after their opening eight games, suggesting United’s nerves are all of their own making.

The Baggies are sweating on the services of veteran Branislav Ivanovic and Matheus Pereira, who both tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of the international window.

Callum Robinson is in the same unfortunate position, although goalkeeper Sam Johnstone is in line to feature between the sticks against his boyhood club.
