Morrison expects to face fully-focused United

United face Chelsea and Manchester City after Albion

ALBION midfielder James Morrison has warned that there is never an easy time to play Manchester United.

Alan Irvine’s troops head into Monday night’s Barclays Premier League fixture in confident mood, following a string of impressive performances prior to the international break.

After facing Albion, Louis Van Gaal’s men welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford before making the short trip across town to face Manchester City.

But despite the visitors having matches against their top four rivals coming up, Morrison is keen to stress that Albion are expecting to face a fully-focused Manchester United at the Hawthorns.

“I don’t think that there is a right time to play Manchester United,” said Morrison.

“They have picked up a few good wins recently so it is going to be a very tough game.

“They have got some fantastic players.

“They are top professionals and their manager seems to be really strict.

“I don’t expect them to take their foot off the gas at all.

“I expect to come up against a fully prepared Manchester United.”
