Manchester United vs West Brom preview
Manchester United prevented the ultimate humiliation of watching their most bitter rivals lift the title last week as they produced an incredible comeback to claim all three points.
Pogba’s brace and Chris Smalling’s winner 20 minutes from time cancelled out City’s two first-half goals in one of the most thrilling games of the 2017/18 season.
Although they remain 13 points off of Pep Guardiola’s side, Jose Mourinho will be keen to now wrap up second place with the focus now on gearing up for next Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final.
The Baggies are now near enough consigned to their fate – the Championship.
Rock bottom of the Premier League, ten points away from safety and just five games remaining their task is near impossible.
Caretaker manager Darren Moore took charge of his first game at West Brom last Saturday, earning a point at home to Swansea.
