Our tipster is expecting an open, high-scoring affair when the Baggies play host to the Red Devils, given the pair's defensive frailties

Two under-fire bosses go head-to-head in the English Premier League on Saturday afternoon when David Moyes’ Manchester United travel to the Hawthorns to take on Pepe Mel’s West Bromwich Albion.

The immediate future of both men has been under scrutiny in recent weeks and victory for either side this weekend could go a long way to alleviating the pressure on the winning manager.

United are warm favourites with the odds compilers to collect all three points, with Paddy Power offering 8/11 (1.73) on the Red Devils claiming a confidence-boosting victory here.

The Baggies can be backed at a chunky 4/1 (5.0) with the same firm to claim a vital victory for Pepe Mel, while Paddy Power go 13/5 (3.60) that both sides are forced to settle for a share of the spoils.

West Brom have drawn 1-1 in each of their last four matches on home turf and some punters may be tempted by the 6/1 (7.0) quote on offer from Paddy Power for that scoreline to be repeated.

The Baggies have found the net in each of their last six matches, while the Red Devils have scored in 15 of their last 16 domestic games in all competitions, therefore, goals seem likely when these two sides go head-to-head on Saturday afternoon, especially with ongoing question marks over the defensive frailties of both sides.

With that in mind, the 8/11 (1.73) quote on offer from Paddy Power for both teams to score looks to be a solid selection and is sure to prove popular with punters, while the 10/11 (1.91) quote for three or more goals to be scored looks to represent outstanding value this weekend.

Those seeking to back bigger prices may well be tempted by Paddy Power’s generous 11/4 (3.75) quote for Manchester United to win a match in which both teams find the net.

However, with United having won just one of their last five matches in all competitions, punters should play safe and snap up the 10/11 (1.91) quote offered up by the same firm for at least three goals to be scored at the Hawthorns.
