Manchester United Need To Win
The Manchester United players pack their bags to visit West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns this Saturday looking for their second away victory of the campaign. The Black Country club will be without versatile Chile international Gonzalo Jara and experienced Romania centre back Gabriel Tamas, while Manchester United will miss Ji-Sung Park, Paul Scholes, Michael Owen, John O’Shea, Owen Hargreaves and Antonio Valencia.
When Manchester United and West Bromwich played each other at Old Trafford earlier this season, West Bromwich Albion managed to make an impressive two-goal comeback in a thrilling 2–2 draw. Although Manchester United remain unbeaten this campaign and top the Premier League table, they were held to a disappointing 1–1 draw against Birmingham City at St Andrews on Tuesday. Despite of the fact that West Bromwich have managed to defeat Middlesborough 3–0, Manchester City 2–1 and Tottenham Hotspur 2–0 in their last three matches at the Hawthorns, Sir Alex Ferguson´s players should come away with all three points if they are able to hold their nerve. The Reds may have had their problems finishing off away games this season, but they still have to start as firm favourites.
