Man United v West Brom tips: Lukaku set to punish beleaguered Baggies

| 13.04.2018

Manchester United denied Manchester City the Premier League title with victory at the Etihad Stadium last week.

And they could make their rivals wait even longer with another three points against West Bromwich Albion this afternoon.

The Baggies have only won once in the league since mid-August. They’ll be led at Old Trafford today by caretaker manager Darren Moore.

The 43-year-old presided over an improved performance against Huddersfield Town last week. But things won’t be quite as straightforward against the Red Devils.

Jose Mourinho’s men are overwhelming favourites to win the match at 1/5. You can back West Brom to win at 18/1. The draw is available at 11/2.

If the visitors are to get anything out of this afternoon they’ll need to stem United’s flow of goals.

This afternoon’s hosts have netted at least two goals in six of their last seven matches in all competitions.

Man United to Win and Over 2.5 Goals is available at 3/4. You can up that to United and Over 3.5 Goals at 9/5.

At least one Red Devils effort is likely to come from Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian forward has netted 11 times since the turn of the year. He also has three goals in his last four matches. It’s 11/4 he Scores First and 3/1 that he bags 2 Goals or More.

Paul Pogba, who netted a brace last weekend against City, is 9/1 to repeat the feat today.

He benefitted from having a freer midfield role against the Sky Blues in the second 45. He’ll be hoping to have that same license to roam once again this afternoon.

It could be worth looking at the half betting too. West Brom tend to concede the majority of their goals in the second-half.

Of the last 15 goals the Baggies have conceded, 12 have come after the break.

United are 31/20 on the -1 Second Half Handicap and 7/5 to Win Both Halves.

You can back the hosts to score 2+ Goals after the break at 23/20.
