EPL-LIVE GAME: West Bromwich VS Manchester United 17 December 2017. Kickoff @ 17:15 EAT.
Draw-specialists West Bromwich (four of the five last matches) welcome Manchester United, who are without a draw in their last 14 competitive matches, to the Hawthorns as we near the halfway mark of the Premier League (PL) season.
Manchester United recovered from their disappointment from the Manchester Derby (2-1 loss at home) to claim all three points against Bournemouth in midweek, in a game where star striker Romelu Lukaku found the net for the first time in four PL matches. Could things be on the up for the big Belgian who has only netted twice in the last ten league matches?
West Bromwich will no doubt be pleased to have shut out goal-friendly Liverpool at Anfield in midweek, but at some point will have to address their challenges going forward. The Baggies have failed to score in seven out of 17 matches so far this season, and have only scored 12 goals in the league (only Swansea are worse with nine goals). New coach Alan Pardew is not known for a defensive approach, so we might see a change going forward.
Romelu Lukaku , with nine goals and four assists, has been directly involved in more goals alone than West Bromwich this season. The striker, who at one point enjoyed playing for the Baggies, also enjoys playing against them it seems, seven games have yielded four goals and three assists. Kick off @ 17:15 EAT.
