The Red Devils welcome the bottom-most team of the league table West Brom for their Premier League tie at the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday afternoon.
Jose Mourinho and his men are riding high on confidence after the recent run of form for the Red Devils except for the Champions League outing against Sevilla. Manchester United won the derby last week making a dramatic 3-2 comeback after being 2-0 down in the first half.
United firmly stand second in the PL table after beating rivals Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City in the previous encounters and have beaten each team in the Premier League this season atleast once. Meanwhile, West Brom are bottom of the table and run high chances of getting relegated this season.
The Reds will be looking for a sixth successive win against the Baggies to continue with the excellent run of form and it will help to build the momentum for a busy week for United with an away game at Bournemouth ahead of their FA Cup semi-final clash over Tottenham at the Wembley Stadium.
