Manchester United will aim to tighten their grip on the second position in the English Premier League on Sunday evening when they host almost relegated and managerless West Bromwich Albion team at Old Trafford.
Manchester United have been in great form in the league winning their last five league matches and defeating top teams like Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City in the process.
Although Manchester United was unceremoniously knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by less fancied Sevilla, that defeat has not affected their form in the league one bit.
