Henrikh Mkhitaryan missed Wednesday’s clash with Crystal Palace in midweek and isn’t expected back until Boxing Day at the earliest. Eric Bailly is also out. They are joined on the sidelines by Luke Shaw, although Chris Smalling is back and available, although he may have to settle for a place on the bench unless Jose Mourinho wants to use his height to help deal with Salomon Rondon. Anthony Martial didn’t travel with the squad in midweek but the reason behind his absence wasn’t specified. He should return to the fold here unless he has picked up an injury.

Jonny Evans missed their 3-1 win over Swansea in midweek through injury and he is a doubt to face off against his former side here. Craig Dawson has served his one-match ban but may not get back into the side with Nyom and Chris Brunt options at full-back. Tony Pulis is again without Boaz Myhill and Saido Berahino due to injury and a lack of match fitness, respectively.

West Brom’s 3-1 win over Swansea on Wednesday has lifted them up to seventh in the league and just four points behind Saturday’s opponents Manchester United. They are flying at the moment and have scored 10 goals in their last three home games. In fact, since the start of November only Chelsea (18) have won more points than the Baggies (13).

Manchester United secured back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since August with a dramatic 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday night and they must now turn their attentions to recording their win in three away to West Brom.

Jose Mourinho’s side are better equipped to deal with the festive period and the quick run of games could work in their favour ahead of this very tough match.
