Man Utd vs West Brom - Premier League preview and team news
After their defeat in the Manchester derby on Sunday, Manchester United return to Premier League action with a home clash against West Bromwich Albion.
It was a difficult few days for Man Utd following their painful 4-1 loss at the Etihad Stadium, with several questions asked of manager David Moyes. However, the Capital One Cup tie against Liverpool on Wednesday produced a morale-boosting win, and a big one for Moyes in particular, as he gained his first triumph over a major rival as Old Trafford boss.
West Brom got their first win at the fifth time of asking against Sunderland on Saturday, a result overshadowed by the matters concerning their opponents. The new signings have given them a major boost, with Stephane Sessegnon and Morgan Amalfitano both scoring early in their Albion careers, although Head Coach Steve Clarke will be disappointed by their midweek Capital One Cup exit, on penalties at the hands of Arsenal.
Robin van Persie is a doubt ahead of this fixture, after picking up an injury ahead of the Manchester derby, while some of the team that played against Liverpool could retain their places in the starting XI.
For West Brom, Claudio Yacob has recovered from a dead leg, and they are waiting on this fitness of striking duo Nicolas Anelka and Victor Anichebe. Chris Brunt and Matej Vydra are definitely out.
