West Brom vs Manchester United
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 14 February 2021
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns.
The Baggies are the worst team in the whole competition along with Sheffield United. They are placed 19th in the table, and need at least 12 more points to climb over the relegation cut-off. It needs to be noted that they have so far posted just 12 points on the board.
Going on, they have also won just twice so far in the whole campaign, and they have also conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the contest.
In fact, they have let in a total of 54 goals till now, while no other squad has yet let in 40.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils appear to be the sole challenge to prevent Pep Guardiola and his men from winning the title. The 13-time PL champions are currently placed second in the table, trailing five points behind the Citizens.
However, Pep’s men are locking horns with Tottenham this weekend, and there’s a minor chance they might drop points. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men need to take advantage of this opportunity.
As things stand, the expectation is that Manchester United will make light work of the struggling West Brom.

Sam Allardyce’s men lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Tottenham. In the meantime, Solskjaer’s men were held to a 3-3 draw at home the past game week, by Everton.
Going on, the Baggies were winless in 27 of their preceding 30 overall fixtures, and they had also lost seven of their former nine matches. Note that they had also conceded a total of 27 goals the past nine games.
On the other hand, the Devils have been the best team in the league after City, and have lost just twice in their latest 18 fixtures.

Considering these observations, expect Manchester United to post the three points on the board, and keep the chase alive for the title.
