Sitting second in the Premier League table after 23 games will have already surpassed most people’s expectations for Man United this season, but if they have ambitions of aiming even higher and catching Manchester City then games like Sunday’s will be crucial.
With third-placed Leicester City facing fourth-placed Liverpool on Saturday there will be an opportunity for Man United to extend their lead over at least one of the teams directly below them in the table, and there is no doubt that they will travel to The Hawthorns as firm favourites to come away with all three points.
Ole Gunnar side have lost just one of their last 17 league outings and are in particularly good form away from home, with no team picking up more points on their travels than the Red Devils, who also boast the only unbeaten away record in the top flight this term.
Indeed, Man United’s unbeaten away run now stretches back a club-record 18 games spanning more than a year, although that streak may be tested more stringently in upcoming trips to face Chelsea and Manchester City.
Before then, the Red Devils face struggling pair West Brom and Newcastle United in the league, coupled with Europa League games against Real Sociedad, so the next fortnight or so could be crucial to their hopes of picking up silverware this season.
Solskjaer’s side kept another route to trophies open in midweek with a over 1- 0 win over West Ham United to progress to the FA Cup quarter-finals, although they needed extra time to see off their Premier League rivals through Scott McTominay‘s goal.
The dull and dreary nature of that game was in stark contrast to the fireworks of their last two Premier League outings, which have seen them score 12 goals – a of Southampton and then a dramatic with Everton which saw Man United concede a last-gasp equaliser.
