Goals To Be Hard To Come By When West Brom Host Manchester United
Manchester United bounced back from their derby defeat to Manchester City by beating Bournemouth in mid-week and they will be looking to collect another three Premier League points when they travel to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday afternoon...
- The past five meetings between West Brom and Man Utd have all gone under 2.5 goals
- West Brom have gone 304 minutes without scoring a league goal

|Tips||Under 2.5 goals Best Bet||@ 4 / 5|
Jose Mourinho's men came in for some fierce criticism for their unimaginative display at Old Trafford last weekend and they barely set the pulses racing during the 1-0 win against Bournemouth since, with the absence of the suspended Paul Pogba again being keenly felt.
Pogba is missing for Sunday's match too but United will fancy that they should have too much quality for a West Brom side that hasn't won in the league since August - a run of 15 games!
United are 8/13 for the win with Betfair but they have dropped points at Huddersfield and Stoke already this season, and West Brom are as big as 11/2 to cause an upset with victory.
A Low Scoring Clash
The Red Devils have won four of the past ten West Bromwich Albion v Man Utd fixtures, drawing three and losing three, and they have won two of their past five visits to The Hawthorns (drawn two, lost one).
Recent trends suggest United should win but it is unlikely to be a thriller as West Brom have gone 304 minutes without a goal and are yet to score in three games with Alan Pardew as manager.
Under 2.5 goals looks like a solid bet at 4/5 (Betfred) and it has paid out in each of the last five meetings between these sides, with Boylesports going 5/2 about a United win combined with under 2.5 goals.
Just the solitary strike could settle matters and Romelu Lukaku, who has scored four goals in seven league appearances against his Baggies team, is 10/3 favourite to be first goalscorer.
