Manchester United travel to The Hawthorns to battle West Bromwich Albion for maximum points in a bid to get their title chase back on track.
The Red Devils currently sit third on the table with 45 points and could move a step up if they get a favourable result after their outing.
They claimed a slim win over West Ham United in their FA Cup fifth-round encounter earlier this week and they will be hoping to maintain the winning status this time around.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men were forced to a 3-3 draw by Everton in their last Premier League game at Old Trafford and the outcome put a dent in their quest to win the EPL this season.
However, they have their city rivals Manchester City to contend with mostly if they have to emerge champions for the first time since 2013.
And given that Paul Pogba will not be available for selection, the Norwegian-born tactician is likely to deploy a 4-4-2 formation with just Fred and McTominay in the middle of the park.
Man United's predicted line-up vs West Brom
- Goalkeeper - David De Gea
- Defenders - Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw
- Midfielder - Fred, Scott McTominay
- Attack: Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Edinson Cavani
In spite of Dean Henderson giving a good account of himself against the Hammers, Solskjaer still doesn't trust him enough and will probably go for De Gea instead.
Victor Lindelof paired with Maguire in the last few games but Daily Express believes the manager might be trying Eric Bailly with the captain at the heart of defence this time.
The attacking trip of Fernandes, Rashford and Cavani have been impressive for their team in a few backs before now, they will be expected to produce similar superb displays to help them get desired results.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester United waited until the extra time before beating West Ham United 1-0 in the FA Cup 5th round which sent them to the last eight of the championship thanks to a goal by Scott McTominay.
Ole Solskjaer and his men went into this game following their disappointing draw at home against Everton in the Premier League and they needed to get redeem themselves.
The Red Devils started this encounter on a brighter note looking for the early goal, but West Ham United goalie Lukasz Fabianski was superb in his department.
