Match Previews: Manchester United v West Bromwich Albion

Author

It is the kind of know-how that could prove risky on Saturday afternoon, at a venue where United has failed too often this season. "A point at Old Trafford is a positive for them".

"It was the kind of player that I wouldn't like to have in the squad".

West Brom were the eighth side to leave Old Trafford with a share of the spoils this season, securing a 0-0 draw against a United side that once more failed to translate dominance into clear-cut chances.

United will be six points off the top four if Manchester City defeat Arsenal on Sunday.

United midfielder Paul Pogba, who suffered a hamstring injury in the Europa League win over FC Rostov, has not recovered in time to play and is one of five senior players unavailable for the return to league action.

Wayne Rooney, a second-half substitute against West Brom, was another involved in the training session, so too Luke Shaw after being omitted from the 18-man squad.

The match was similar to a lot of previous home matches this season with United seeing most of the possession but struggling to find gaps in the visitors' defence.

"I'm not critical of it - they come for that, clearly", the United boss said. "He will go out and get the players he wants".

Mourinho, whose side face Everton on Tuesday, said he "cannot be happy to play in two days without options", with his selection choices having been hit by both injuries and suspensions.

No team can match fifth-placed United's unbeaten Premier League run stretching all the way back to October, nor can any other side match their unerring knack at dominating only to draw. Despite his success on the pitch it is fair to say that supporters have been mixed about the striker's future plans and whether his presence in the team is in fact a hindrance to the development of the likes of Marcus Rashford and Antony Martial.

"Jose knows how to win with big clubs".

"In teams that want to win things, you need consistency in the individuals", the United boss told a news conference.

"We want people that if I call some guy or if Mr Woodward calls some player or some agent, we want people who are immediately engaged, immediately dreaming about coming".
