Manchester United will be out to avenge their home defeat to West Bromwich Albion when they travel to the Midlands on Saturday.
The Red Devils crashed 2-1 to this weekend’s hosts back in September when a 67th minute goal Saido Berahino 67th minute goal sealed three points and shocked the Old Trafford faithful.
Last season’s clash at the Hawthorns was also a memorable affair, albeit for different reasons, with WBA coming from 5-2 down with 10 minutes to go to snatch a point in a thrilling 5-5 draw.
Both teams have shown poor form of late with WBA heading into the game with just two wins form their last 21 games, a run of results that leaves them just outside the bottom three.
United meanwhile have endured a miserable 2014 so far crashing out of the FA and Capital One cups and on the brink of elimination from the Champions league following a 2-0 defeat to Olympiakos in the first league of their last 16 clash.
Coupled with that the club have won just three league game so far this year dropping points against Spurs, Chelsea, Stoke, Fulham and Arsenal.
David Moyes’ men are currently 7th in the Premier League table, 12 points behind fourth place Manchester City and 8 points behind fifth place Spurs.
The former Everton manager has also had to suffer the ignominy of seeing his old club sitting one place and three points ahead of them in the table although with the Toffee’s in FA Cup action Moyes will be hopefully of leapfrogging the Merseysiders.
With Champions league qualification unlikely, the focus will be on securing a Europa league spot and their quest will be aided by their neightbours, City, winning the Capital One cup, a result that means 6th place in the league will secure European football.
It is mixed news on the team selection front for Moyes with Juan Mata available again after missing the trip to Greece. The Spaniard’s return will be offset by the absence of Javier Hernandez. The Mexican international suffered a knee injury on International duty and is struggling to be fit.
West Brom meanwhile will be without striker Nicolas Anelka as the French man is currently under a club suspension pending the final decision on his Football Association-sanctioned ban for his controversial ‘quenelle’ gesture will be.
