West Brom v Man United: Goals guaranteed at the Hawthorns
Manchester United head to the Hawthorns on Monday night looking to pick up their third league win in a row and are favourites to do just that at 7/10.
The hosts could fancy their chances at 4/1, however, after going unbeaten in four Monday Night Football outings, while United have won just one of their last five at the start of the week.
The draw is available at 3/1 to here James Curtis looks at three of the better value offerings on the match.
While West Brom may be used to avoiding defeat on Monday nights just one win from 21 meetings with United shows that it’s the visitors who are to be backed here.
However, with both teams netting in five of the last eight meetings and United’s defensive frailties well documented this term it pays to take the longer odds on an away with both sides on target.
Even without Wayne Rooney – who has bagged six goals in six games against the Baggies – United’s front line should be able to net 2-3 goals for the seventh time in eight meetings – not including the bizarre 5-5 draw that marked Sir Alex Ferguson’s farewell.
With Radamel Falcao off the mark, Angel Di Maria in good form and Juan Mata a solid replacement for the suspended captain expect United to be among the goals again here.
United have edged their last two games by a single goal but their last three wins over the Baggies have come by two goals or more.
With the Baggies keeping a clean sheet just twice in 12 home games in the league the -1 handicap shouldn’t be too hard for the 20-time champions to overcome.
