Premier League Betting: Manchester United vs. West BromPublished May 2, 2015 by Amir G
Manchester United looks to preserve top-four position against West Brom at Old Trafford (17:30 UK time).
Decision time is upon the Premier League and the Red Devils as Manchester United host West Brom today at Old Trafford (17:30 UK time).
Manchester's Top Four Challenge
Positioned fourth in the table, Manchester United has 65 points composed of 19 wins, 8 draws, 7 losses and a GD of 25. They are 15 points away from Chelsea and 2 points away from Manchester City and Arsenal. The most realistic goal boss Louis van Gaal can have now is to collect the maximum amount of points from the last four gameweeks in the premier.
If Gaal wants the firm to remain in the top four the team must use their opportunities to the max, as any stall could have Liverpool, Tottenham and Southampton take the position from the reds. Performance-wise, United enjoyed a run of six consecutive wins before losing to Chelsea (1-0) and Everton (3-0) last week. Manchester United will be strong at home after two consecutive losses, and even without Wayne Rooney they are favorites to win today.
West Brom is positioned 13th in the table with 37 points (9w, 10d, 15l), after the team managed to get itself together and gain some distance from the threat of relegation despite a streak of losses in between.
With this in mind, West Brom's position at the Premier is pretty much confirmed for another season so they don't have a lot to worry about today, something that could take the game to any direction. West Brom could give United a run for its money but it's very hard to see them coming out with a win.
