Manchester United vs West Brom
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 21 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.
The Red Devils are desperate for a huge win. They have so far recorded a total of just ten points from their seven fixtures, and talks are already arising for their gaffer to be replaced. They simply cannot go on another match-day, without a considerable victory.
And like blessings from heaven, they are pitted against possibly the worst team in the competition. Not only are the Baggies a newly promoted squad, but they are also placed 18th in the table at the moment, and are yet to win a fixture nonetheless.
On top of that, they have also conceded the most number of goals so far in the competition, and to further swing the scales away from them, they have to take a trip to the Old Trafford this weekend.
Going on, like so many other teams in England, Slaven Bilic’s men also have a terrible h2h record against this rival over the years.
As such, expect the desperate Manchester United to make the most of this encounter, and post a convincing win.
Manchester United vs West Brom: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men had recorded 14 of the former 18 overall wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in 19 of the preceding 25 encounters.
- In the past two decades, only thrice have the guests won at this venue.
- The hosts have kept clean sheets in six of the preceding ten clashes at this stadium.
Manchester United vs West Brom: Prediction
The Devils recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Everton. The victory against the in-form Toffees was surely a confidence-booster for the former.
In the meantime, the Baggies lost 0-1 at home against Tottenham. Going on, they are yet to win a game this season, and in fact remained winless in 14 of their preceding 15 fixtures. And do note that this sole victory had come against Harrogate from the lower division.
On the road, they were also winless in nine of their previous ten fixtures, and had failed to score in five of these games as well. And importantly, do also take note that they have conceded the most number of goals so far in the tournament.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in eight of their preceding eleven fixtures, and they remained so in 11 of their past 15 appearances at home.
And to top it all off, Solskjaer’s men have been one of the best teams in England for the past several decades, and they surely do have a phenomenal h2h record against this newly-promoted team as well.
For the reasons, expect a Manchester United win this Saturday, and that too a comprehensive one.
