With home advantage on their side, Jose Mourinho’s side will be looking put more misery on the struggling Baggies this weekend

Second-placed Manchester United take on bottom-placed West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford for Sunday's Premier League encounter.

The Reds Devils enter this tie on the back of an excellent run of form in the English top-flight and will be full of confidence securing a sixth consecutive victory. The stunning 3-2 comeback win against their city rivals Manchester City last Saturday saw them narrow the gap between both sides to 13 points.

Having suffered just one defeat in 16 home games this season, winning 13, Bet365 tips them at (1.18) to claim maximum points.

Albion's 1-1 draw against Swansea City last Saturday made it 10 competitive outings without victory, and they are currently 10 points adrift of safety in the league. Bookies offer them at odds of (19.00) as huge underdogs.

An unlikely stalemate at the end of 90 minutes is chalked up at a juicy (8.00) with the same firm.

So far this season, Darren Moore’s side look worse on the road. After their 1-0 victory over Burnley in their first away game of the campaign, they have lost 11 of their 15 matches since then, and have found th back of the net on seven occasions, failing to score eight times.

Meanwhile, the visitors come up against a United side who boast of the best defensive record in their backyard this season. So, it’ll be worth backing a 2-0 correct score prediction available at (6.00) in favour of the home team.

Five of the last six competitive games between both sides has produced two goals or less. However, the home team’s recent run of form which has seen them score three or more goals in four of their last five matches. Punters can back over 2.5 goals as a likely outcome at odds of (1.65).

Mourinho’s men have shipped in just seven goals in their 16 league fixtures at Old Trafford this term, with 10 of their 13 victories been to nil. With the Baggies’ dismal scoring record, backing United to win to nil is valued at (1.57) with Bet365.
