Manchester United will to head-to-head with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns in the Premier League this evening, having won their last two league matches; beating Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace, also going on a run of nine matches without a defeat. United may not be in the form of Chelsea, who have won eleven matches in a row at this stage of the season, but aside of domestic competitions, Chelsea has not had European football to contend with, which has been something that he left United wondering what could have been. Jose Mourinho’s side have been playing some good football over the past few months, but that has not always seen United victorious losing three league matches and drawing six in the sixteen matches already played in the league this season. The likes of Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and David De Gea have produced at times to get United victorious again. The last nine matches undefeated will mean nothing if United leave the Black Country with anything less than three much-needed points. It is expected that United finish this weekend in sixth place again, keeping the chase on fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, unless they end up losing this weekend when they entertain Burnley, which could see United go level on points, goal difference separating them.
