Saturday evening will see Manchester United return to Premier League action after the end of 2020’s international break. The Red Devils will be hosting West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford for the first time since The Baggies were relegated when the 2017/2018 season came to an end.
Manchester United manager Olé Gunnar Solskjær will be looking to turn things around at the club, as they have failed to record a single victory at home in the league this season. They have played a total of four home games in the Premier League, drawing one and losing the remaining three.
In those four games, they have scored just two goals, conceding ten, and have managed to keep just one clean sheet. They have recorded their only Old Trafford win this season in the UEFA Champions League; thrashing German side RB Leipzig in a home 5-0 last month.
United’s poor league form this season has left them languishing in 14th position with just ten points after playing seven games.
Here’s my United team prediction for the clash on Saturday.
Goalkeeper: De Gea
The Spanish shot-stopper has been in fine form since after the heavy 6-1 defeat. He has put in fine performances in games since then, especially in their last game against Everton.
Defenders: Alex Telles, Harry Maguire, Axel Tuanzebe, Aaron Wan-Bissaka
Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelöf’s injuries mean Telles and Tuanzebe are available to come into the fold.
Midfielders Two: Scott McTominay, Donny Van de Beek
With Pogba being in awful form this season, this pair should do great.
Attacking Midfield: Mason Greenwood, Daniel James, Bruno Fernandes
Rashford is almost certain to miss the match, hence, Daniel James who performed excellently on international duty should be given the nod.
With Martial injured and Cavani down with covid-19, the Nigerian would do a great job.
