West Bromwich Albion have collected a lot of draws in their recent fixtures, but they remain winless in their last 15 league games ahead of Manchester United’s visit to the Hawthorns on Sunday.
Since Alan Pardew has taken charge at the club, the Baggies have displayed a stark improvement in their performances. During the midweek, the Baggies claimed a goalless draw at Liverpool, and now they have drawn four of their last five league games.
The Baggies occupy the 17th spot in the table with 14 points; they are out of the drop zone due to a better goal difference.
United will come into the game on the back of a hard-fought 1-0 home win over Bournemouth. The visitors still occupy the second spot in the league table, but they are now eleven points behind the leaders.
The Baggies certainly have the ability to frustrate United on Sunday, but we are backing the Red Devils to come through in the end.
Last season, the Baggies managed a goalless draw at Old Trafford, but United claimed a 2-0 win in the corresponding fixture.
