MATCH PREVIEW: Man Utd v Albion

29 March 2017

All the details ahead of Albion's trip to Old Trafford

ALBION's Premier League season continues on Saturday as they travel to Old Trafford looking to record back-to-back wins for the first time since January (ko 3pm).

The opposition

Fifth in the Premier League and just four points behind Liverpool with two games in hand, Manchester United have their sights set on a return to Champions League football next season. And even if Jose Mourinho's men fail to finish fourth, they could still qualify by virtue of winning the Europa League. A tie against Anderlecht awaits in April. For now, attention turns to a clash with the Baggies at Old Trafford.

Last time out

A Zlatan Ibrahimovic double gave United a 2-0 win over the Baggies at The Hawthorns in December.
