STAT PACK: United away under the spotlight

31 March 2017

Baggies travel to Manchester to take on the Reds


HEAD-TO-HEAD

The Baggies have won twice at Old Trafford in the last three seasons. Goals from Morgan Amalfitano and Saido Berahino secured a 2-1 victory in September 2013, with Jonas Olsson grabbing the winner in May 2015.

Manchester United have won just three of their last eight meetings with Albion.

The Reds have won 2-0 in three of the last five meetings between the sides at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho’s men also claimed a 2-0 victory over the Baggies in the reverse fixture back in December.

Albion have won three of their seven league meetings with Manchester United since Alex Ferguson's retirement as manager (D1, L3), having won none of their 14 previous clashes when the Scotsman was in charge of the Reds (D3, L11).

The first clash between United and Albion came way back in October 1892. It ended goalless.

MANCHESTER UNITED

United are 18 games unbeaten in the Premier League. The last time they lost a league match was back in October when Chelsea put four past them at Stamford Bridge.

Wayne Rooney has seven goals and five assists in his last 10 Premier League appearances against the Albion.

United have played 48 games in all competitions so far in the 2016/17 season. They have failed to score in just six of those matches.

The Reds have only conceded two goals in nine matches at Old Trafford in 2017 in all competitions and both of those goals were penalties.

Jose Mourinho's side have won just one of their last four league games at Old Trafford, drawing the other three.





ALBION

James Morrison could make his 300th Premier League appearance at Old Trafford. If he does so, the midfielder will become just the fourth Scottish player to reach the milestone.

A win against United would take Albion to within three points of equalling their highest tally in the Premier League. The Baggies finished on 49 points from 38 games in the 2012/13 season.

The Baggies’ last win away from home came on the final day of 2016 – a 2-1 victory at Southampton.

Albion have outrun their opponents in a league-high 93% of their matches in the Premier League this season (27/29), including the last 19 games in a row.

Tony Pulis’ side have lost just two of their previous eight matches in the Premier League. The Baggies have won four of those games and have drawn the remaining two.
