West Brom v Man Utd – The Hawthorns at 16:00 live on Sky Sports 1
Sunday’s late afternoon kick off see’s in-form West Brom host a resurgent Man Utd at the Hawthorns and it’s live on Sky Sports 1.
West Brom currently sit in 13th place, 12 points above the bottom three and are on a great run of form. The Baggies are unbeaten in their last 5 home league matches and have suffered just 2 defeats in their last 10 BPL games.
At the Hawthorns they have lost just one of their last 8 matches and have held Tottenham and defeated Arsenal in that spell. When they are beaten on home soil, it has always often by a narrow margin, only losing by more than one goal once, to Man City on the opening day of the season.
Last time out they held league leaders Leicester to a 2-2 draw at the King Power stadium and prior to that well deserved point they defeated Everton and Crystal Palace.
Mathematically they are not safe, but keep playing as they are and it won’t be long before another season in the top flight is ensured.
WBA are unfortunate they are facing Man Utd now, with the Red Devils experiencing an up-turn in form, having won 4 matches on the spin in all competitions.
United manager,Louis Van Gaal has been lambasted all season and just a week or so ago, a top four finish, just like LVG’s future at Old Trafford looked unlikely. However, with the top 4 teams all dropping points in midweek, Utd are now level on points with 4th placed rivals City as well as being in contention for the FA Cup and Europa League.
Despite their improvements, the Red Devils away form remains very poor, winning just one of their last 7 games in the Premier League. With just five league wins on the road from 14 this season, it’s very hard to back them as short as 2.06.
West Brom are a very tough team to beat at home and with United’s injuries, despite their quality young players that have stepped in and performed well, the value is backing the Baggies +0.5 on the Asian Handicap betting market.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: West Brom +0.5 at 1.89
