Ex-Manchester United striker Michael Owen is expecting his former club to make a light work of West Brom when the two sides face each other at Old Trafford tomorrow evening.
Even though the Red Devils have had a bad start to the season, Owen believes their opponents are very poor and he can’t see any other result than a convincing win for the home side:
“United have still to find their rhythm and they must find a way to get their best players all on the pitch at the same time, which is obviously easier said than done. You can’t keep Pogba on the bench, and if he can’t secure a regular place in the side soon, he may have to consider his options. For all United are inconsistent, they are up against a side that are really struggling, and I expect them to win this comfortably.”
Owen has gone for a 2-0 victory to United, which is a pretty fair prediction considering the Baggies have not won any of their eight league games this season and don’t often get on the scoresheet.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be determined to get his first home win of the campaign, after a wretched start which has seen them pick up just one point in four games at the Theatre of Dreams.
United need to build some momentum after securing a good victory against Everton before the international break and making it two wins on the bounce could help get their season back on track.
