West Brom vs Manchester United Match Preview
West Brom will hope for an upturn in form and end their winless run in the Premier League when they host Manchester United this weekend. This West Brom vs Manchester United fixture is scheduled for Sunday, December 17 at The Hawthorns, so read the match preview, betting tips and predictions for this game.
West Brom did pick up an unexpected point at the Anfield and even surprised quite a few by keeping the free-scoring Liverpool to a blank. However, they remain in deep trouble this season and after 17 games, the hosts are 17th in the league table (14pts, W2, D8, L7). That they are just goal difference away from being sucked into the relegation zone should tell you the magnitude of their problems. They are winless in 16 games in all competitions and their last win was way back in August, in the League Cup. Though a fair bit of the games in the recent months have been draws, there is no denying the fact that West Brom are sliding down the Premier League table. But, can they build on that impressive draw against Liverpool?
It won’t be easy for the hosts, though, as up against them are the second-placed Manchester United. The Red Devils are coming off a disappointing 2-1 loss at home against Manchester City that all but ended their title hopes. Although United bounced back with an unconvincing 1-0 home win against Bournemouth, they are still 11 points off the top spot (38pts, W12, D2, L3). United still boast of the best defence in the league having conceded just 11 goals so far. However, they have struggled against the likes of Bournemouth, Brighton, and Huddersfield. Jose Mourinho may not have given up title hopes yet, but he needs to find a way of keeping his side motivated for this West Brom vs Manchester United fixture.

West Brom vs Manchester United Predictions
United have struggled this season against teams that can sit back and hurt them on the counter. West Brom will definitely look to build from that draw at Liverpool and the best way to do that is another point against United. The hosts will be happy with a point, but will sit back tight. This could be a game of few goals and we are backing it to be under 2.5 goals.
