    Manchester United Aim for First Premier League Home Win

    The English Premier League returns this weekend following a break for international football. There are four matches to be played on Saturday the 21st of November including the meeting between Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford.

    The hosts begin the weekend in 14th place on 10 points while the visitors are in 18th place on 3 points.

    Manchester United picked up a crucial victory in their most recent Premier League game as they defeated Everton 3-1 away from home. The Red Devils went 1-0 down in the match but produced a tremendous comeback thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani. It was an important win as Manchester United had previously lost at home against Arsenal in the Premier League and away to Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League.

    Trends show Manchester United have won only 1 of their last 7 home Premier League matches and that is where the problem has been this season. There have been 3 defeats in 4 home Premier League games this season, including a 3-1 loss against Crystal Palace and heavy 6-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur.

    Both teams have scored in 5 of their last 7 home Premier League matches and Manchester United will be hoping not only to win this game but to keep a clean sheet.

    West Bromwich Albion come into the match having lost 1-0 at home against Tottenham Hotspur prior to the international break. It appeared as though The Baggies were going to hold on to take a point but a goal in the 88th minute by Harry Kane took maximum points for the visitors.

    That was the second successive defeat in the Premier League for West Bromwich Albion following the extremely disappointing 2-0 loss at Fulham. That was a crucial game for West Bromwich Albion against another struggling team and they failed to produce the level of performance required to take anything from the match.

    Trends show West Bromwich Albion have won only 1 of their last 14 games in all competitions. The victory came at home in the League Cup against Harrogate Town.

    West Bromwich Albion have failed to score a goal in 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions and they have lost 4 of their last 5 on the road.

    Team news and Manchester United will be without Phil Jones, Luke Shaw, and Eric Bailly due to injury. Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, and Victor Lindelof are doubts.

    West Bromwich Albion travel without Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Field who are injured. Branislav Ivanovic, Matheus Pereira, and Callum Robinson are doubts due to COVID-19.

    This is a must win game for Manchester United and they should have enough to defeat a West Bromwich Albion team who have yet to pick up a victory this season. The match also provides a great opportunity for Manchester United to keep a clean sheet.
