Manchester United play West Bromwich Albion this Saturday and the Red Devils would have to win this game but without some of their star devils like Pogba, Ibrahimović, Jones and Smalling who are out due to injuries and suspension. While this should not deter the Manchester team like Jose Mourinho thinks it wouldn’t, it would still be a difficult match for the devils especially with the added pressure that they have to play even tougher matches in the coming rounds. After escaping the 6th spot in the league the Manchester team has been looking pretty good and now sit 4 points behind Liverpool with 2 games in hand.

Zlatan Ibrahimović is suspended for this match and Manchester United will undoubtedly miss its most valuable player. Zlatan has been the teams driving force in attack and has used his presence on the field to lift his teammates during a crisis. He is the team’s top scorer in the league and has taken more shots than anyone in the premier league so far.
His strong stature often makes it hard for defenders to get him off the ball. His unique ability to score from anywhere no matter how the ball falls from him makes the Target Man in the league.
Added to Zlatan’s suspension, Mourinho also sees his star man Pogba out due to injury. While many claim Pogba is not worth the money and his showboat skills in the matches because little or no damage to the opposition, his stats in midfield prove otherwise. He has made a tremendous contribution in terms of his passing and has used his deft touches to often create chances. He may not be worth his price tag, but Manchester surely needs his presence during key moments.
West Brom also has a couple of concerns but they will still look to finish strong by grabbing at least a point at Old Trafford. They have won against United in the past three seasons and usually up their game against tougher opposition.
Their togetherness and optimistic thinking might well grant them a point. Both teams are nearly equal in terms of goal scoring differing but just 4 goals although the striking talent in both teams are miles apart. But on the defensive end West Brom cannot be acknowledged as they have let in almost as many as they have scored, leaving a goal difference of just 1.
The match is bound to be full of action, so don’t dare to miss it!
