Manchester United v Albion match preview

14 April 2018

ALBION travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United this Sunday (ko 4.00pm).

The opposition 

United currently sit second in the Premier League table having accumulated 71 points from their 32 fixtures so far this season.

Jose Mourinho’s side have won their last five league games in a row, including a 3-2 victory over rivals Manchester City last time out.

Last time out

The most recent match between the two teams was in December when first half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard were enough to hand the Red Devils a win despite Gareth Barry’s late strike.

The last meeting at Old Trafford, though, was a goalless draw in April 2017.
