Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion Match Preview
After successfully halting rivals Manchester City’s title charge in the derby last week, United will hope to continue winning as they aim to cement their second spot in the Premier League. The Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion fixture will be played at the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester on Sunday, April 15, so check out our Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion prediction and betting tips. According to top bookmakers Manchester United is a big favorite to win this game and any other result, except home win, would be a big surprise.
United start this Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion encounter 13 points off the pace in second place after 32 games (71 pts, W22, D5, L5). They remain four points ahead of Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur behind them, although Liverpool played a game extra. United survived the ignominy of handing over the title to City in the derby last weekend by coming back from 2-0 down to eventually win 3-2 at The Etihad Stadium. That win made it three wins in a row for the Red Devils in all competitions, but having crashed out of the Champions League and no chances of title in the Premier League, their focus remains only on cementing their position in the league. They have lost only once in 16 home matches, winning 13 of them, and remain a very difficult proposition at home.
West Bromwich Albion
That should spell trouble for the visiting Baggies, as they remain rooted to the bottom of the table. They start this Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion encounter ten points away from safety. With just five games left for them, the Baggies have a lot to play for and improve – to entertain any hopes of survival. They did draw 1-1 against Swansea in the last round of fixtures which halted their nine-match losing streak in all competitions. After starting the season with two successive wins, the Baggies have bagged only one more win. Away from home, they have lost their last four games and have won only one match all season.

Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion Prediction
The home side have not been their usual dominant selves this season, but have made sure that the results have come at home. Jose Mourinho knows that he still remains on the periphery of winning back the faithful and should they lose to the Baggies in this encounter, the positive effect from last weekend stunning win will be completely washed away. We expect easy home win and believe that Manchester United will finish the job in the first half-time.
