MUN vs WBA Fantasy Prediction: Second worst home record takes on the second worst away from home record.
Today’s fixture finally looks to be the one which will offer some solace to Manchester United in their home this season. When West Brom come calling, Manchester United will be fanciful of their chances of pulling off a much yearned for win in familiar territory.
Its down to the plight of 18th placed West Brom. Despite having only earned promotion into the Premier League a couple of months back, the club is already being widely touted to make the drop once again with the club yet to win a single fixture after 8 matches.
While they did manage to put on a brave front for once when they took on Tottenham the last time around, the side’s best efforts failed to translate into anything meaningful with the club falling to its second defeat after conceding a late goal to Harry Kane.
This contest between two clubs in the midst of a ruckus will swing in Manchester United’s favour with West Brom incapable of offering anything noteworthy on the pitch.
Eric and Luke are both going to miss out on today’s encounter due to their ongoing injuries.
Sam and Hal will fail to make the cut for West Brom in lieu of their injuries.
Probable Playing XI
De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles, McTominay, Fred, Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial.
West Bromwich Albion
Johnstone, Furling, Ivanovic, Bartley, O’Shea, Townsend, Gallagher, Livermore, Krovinovic, Pereira, Grant.
Manchester United – Bruno: 5 Goals, 3 Assists.
West Bromwich Albion – Robinson: 2 Goals.
MUN vs WBA Fantasy Prediction
Despite being part of a backline which has shipped in 17 goals, Sam Johnstone will find a place in our side as the goal-keeper for today’s upcoming contest. The goal-keeper has been the only saving grace for the club defensively, a player who has warmed the cockles of the hearts of his side’s ardent supporters.
Although Manchester United have the worst defensive record at home this term, we’ll still be opting for a trio of picks from the side. Its down to the identity of their opponents, a side which has failed to score in four of its last five matches.
With West Brom in a rut when it comes to attack, we have decided to enshrine Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Victor Lindelof into our side.
Not only have West Brom gone onto leak 17 goals this term but the side have also conceded the most number of goals away from home. This is a side Bruno Fernandes can easily score to and add to his 5 goal and 3 assist tally against.
West Brom on the other hand meanwhile will see us repose faith in Matheus Pereira who with two assists has created the most number of goals for the club. Filip Krovinovic and Conor Gallagher have moved in tedium and close out play and recover the ball for their side, tenacious players who have offered unbridled defensive support to the side.
Contributing to the second most number of goals for his club with two goals and three assists, Marcus Rashford is the first of three picks from his side in this slot. Joining up with him are Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood, names who can easily record their first goal this season given West Brom’s jittery and lopsided brand of defending.
Captain and vice-captain
Bruno’s 2 goals against Everton see him be our captain for the day while Rashford is the vice-captain.
Sam, Aaron, Harry, Victor, Bruno, Matheus, Conor, Filip, Marcus, Anthony, Mason.
