Confirmed lineups: Man Utd vs West Brom

Manchester United would end Saturday in the top half with three points at home to West Bromwich Albion this evening.

Slaven Bilic’s side start the day inside the relegation without a win from their opening eight league fixtures this season, taking just three points.

The visitors to Old Trafford this evening have scored just one goal in their last five games, since blowing a 3-0 lead to draw with Chelsea back in September.

The two teams are confirmed as:

Manchester United

David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Alex Telles; Nemanja Matic, Fred, Bruno Fernandes; Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford

Substitutes: Dean Henderson, Axel Tuanzebe, Brandon Williams, Scott McTominay, Donny van de Beek, Daniel James, Edinson Cavani

Alex Telles makes his Premier League debut at left-back with Luke Shaw out through injury. Victor Lindelof passed a late fitness test to partner Harry Maguire in the middle of our back four.

Nemanja Matic and Fred will protect the defence as Paul Pogba is absent, whilst Donny van de Beek’s wait for his first Premier League start continues. Juan Mata and Bruno Fernandes will be the play makers in attacking midfield.

Anthony Martial leads the line and will look to team up with Marcus Rashford, out on the left.

West Bromwich Albion

Sam Johnstone; Conor Townsend, Branislav Ivanovic, Semi Ajayi, Kyle Bartley, Darnell Furlong; Matheus Pereira, Romaine Sawyers, Conor Gallagher, Grady Diangana; Karlan Grant

Substitutes: David Button, Dara O’Shea, Filip Krovinovic, Rakeem Harper, Matt Phillips, Hal Robson-Kanu, Callum Robinson

West Brom appear to be lining up in a 5-4-1 formation, which includes 36-year-old Branislav Ivanovic as part of the defence.

Former Manchester United youth Sam Johnstone is between the posts, whilst Grady Diangana is one to keep an eye on in counter-attacks. A task for Nemanja Matic as the attacking midfielder is skillful with a good long-range shot on him.
