Since tasting defeat to Chelsea in the Premier League last year October, Manchester United have come-off all their League games with at least one point and the Red Devils will be looking to maintain this momentum when they host West Brom in the League this weekend.
However, Jose Mourinho could be forced to call up some of his fringe players for the game against the Baggies as reports have indicated that Manchester United are uncertain that up to seven players will be fit for the clash this Saturday.
United moved to fifth place on the Premier League log, four points adrift fourth placed Liverpool with two outstanding matches to be played. Mourinho had revealed that he misses the Champions League, nonetheless, Man United stand a chance for qualification if they win their remaining matches.
Marouane Fellaini is on the recovery pane like his teammates Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, who all sustained minor injuries during the interlull. Wayne Rooney, who missed the last five games for United, is yet on his way to fitness and a doubt for the weekend clash.
Ander Herrera and goal poacher Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not feature as they are yet serving suspensions – Mourinho’s choice in the midfield and attack is somewhat limited, which leaves him with youngster Marcus Rashford in attack and probably Carrick to orchestrate play from midfield.
West Brom recently thumped Arsenal in the League and this means the Red Devils must be at their best to be able to get the three points at stake.
