  1. West Brom are a very tough opposition at their home. I wish Van Gaal doesn’t take a risk with unfit Smalling here. Rashford could be relegated to the bench for Lingaard, so Martial can go to his favourite center striker position. I think a draw won’t be bad for United.

  2. WBA will no doubt think they can bring something to this game, but Manchester United are in a bit of a purple patch with three wins from three. After last Sunday’s result against Arsenal Louis Van Gaal can be a little relieved of any pressure, but it’s still a work in-progress
    My prediction is 2-1 for Manchester United
