Boasting a strong record at Old Trafford, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Baggies to serve up more home frustration for Solskjaer's men on Saturday

Manchester United will be desperate for a long-awaited Premier League home win when they welcome West Bromwich Albion to Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Red Devils have gone six matches without a league victory on home soil, picking up just one point there from a possible 12 so far this campaign.

Nevertheless, they are clear 3/10 (1.30) favourites with bet365 to finally claim a much-needed victory against their struggling opponents.

Slaven Bilic’s men have lost five and won none of their eight league matches since returning to the top flight but can be backed at 17/2 (9.50) to compound their hosts’ domestic difficulties with a shock win, or 9/2 (5.50) to claim a creditable draw.

Victor Lindelof, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, and Jesse Lingard will all face fitness tests while Luke Shaw is definitely ruled out.

Branislav Ivanovic, Matheus Pereira, and Callum Robinson should be available once again after positive COVID-19 diagnoses, although Sam Field and Hal Robson-Kanu are both sidelined due to injury.

Despite their winless start to the season, the Baggies may feel quietly confident of causing some frustration for the hosts at a ground where they have actually fared rather well recently - winning three times and losing just once in their last five visits.

What’s more, the newly-promoted guests have tightened up at the back over the last few matches, conceding just six times in five games and only losing out to a last-minute Harry Kane goal in a narrow 1-0 defeat at Tottenham last time out.

This may look rather ominous for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, who have only hit the net three times in their previous five league fixtures on home turf and seem to struggle to break down sides that sit back and defend.

Manchester United vs West Brom Tips and Predictions

All in all, odds of 13/10 (2.30) could prove solid value on West Brom ensuring under 2.5 goals for their sixth consecutive match and seventh encounter in eight with a Manchester United side that has seen just a single goal at either end in the last two league games at Old Trafford.

All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
