On paper, United should amble to victory, but strange results always seem to pop up right after an international break

United hopes they won’t be in a big surprise as they aim for a first home PL win of the season against a West Brom side that haven’t won any of their first eight games of the season

West Brom have been unlucky so far this season as Slaven Bilic’s side have been difficult to break, but scoring goals remains a major problem

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs his squad to play after a sloppy start to the season and this seems like the perfect opportunity for that

Manchester United have a number of concerns but Marcus Rashford is returning after a minor shoulder problem while Luke Shaw, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones definitely start out Victor Lindelof but continue to struggle with a back problem while Edinson Cavani after a long journey Alex Telles replaces the injured Shaw

Hal Robson Canoe and Sam Field stay out injured

Paul Pogba on his season with Man United so far: “This is a time I have never seen in my career as I am used to playing all the time and getting into my rhythm So this has suddenly changed. I have the feeling that I am now gradually coming back to it. I am rediscovering my shape ”

Slaven Bilic on COVID-19 tests: “Hopefully they’ll all be fine but we’ve had a couple of cases, yes (It’s) confidential We can’t say the names Let’s say a few but the good thing is that player like Pereira and Ivanovic back they trained this week so they should be okay for the Man United game Callum Robinson went (away) to Ireland but got a positive test He is fit, he took a test last night and the results came this morning. It’s negative so we hope to see it today but they should (all) be fine ”
