Pogba set for United comeback

It is certainly no time for an injury crisis, with United facing a truly pivotal fortnight.

What Mourinho has achieved so far is making United hard to beat.

Wayne Rooney is back in contention after recovering from a knee injury but I think a place on the bench is the best he can hope for. "We are not consistent with this, we miss easy chances, we have moments or periods where we push but then a couple of players disappear and there is 10 minutes when you don't see them". In the second season I know the players I want, the players I don't want, why I want, why I don't want. The 24-year-old, who is now out with a hamstring injury, has taken time to settle at United since returning in August and has yet to justify his massive transfer fee.

They have already bagged the EFL Cup and are now the favourites to win the Europa League, where they will take on Anderlecht in a two-legged quarter-final tie later this month. "But I'm sure we're going to do something interesting".

When asked by the journalist West Brom cancelled out Man Utd and if the teams were evenly balanced, the Portuguese manager said: "You think the game was equal?" In 15 days' time maybe the Premier League is not important for us, maybe it is.

"If we keep winning matches now, that match against Chelsea is an important match for us". So we lose five. It is the kind of test for which Mourinho was recruited.

Manchester United return to Premier League action when West Bromwich Albion come calling at Old Trafford this afternoon following a fortnight of global break during which most of the first team players have been globe-trotting with their countries.

The four remaining in custody were arrested on suspicion of " preparation of terrorist acts ", the police said. Police also said they seized more than 2,700 items, which includes " massive amounts of computer data ".

Prior to the global break, Pulis' enjoyed a stunning 3-1 home win against Arsenal, helped by a brace from defender Craig Dawson. Also, with United thin on defensive reinforcements, Rondon will hold the key to Albion pulling off their first away win in 2017 - by maximum utilization of set pieces, which clearly is their cup of tea.

It is hard to look too far ahead given United have such a taxing schedule.

Yet, Pulis is backing that trio's former club to challenge for the title next season, even if this campaign is now beyond the Reds.

Man Utd 2-0 West Brom: The Baggies have a decent recent record against United having won two of their last three visits to Old Trafford but Mourinho's men have been grinding out results and I fancy them to get all three points tomorrow. "Manchester United will probably just nick it".

Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and Atletico defender Jose Gimenez are others linked to a club whose attractiveness will go up a notch with Champions League qualification. The boy Foster was very good. The Swede has conquered and proved himself in the Premier League - something he always said he could and would.

The match continued in the same pattern after the break with West Brom soaking up United's timid attacking play.

United dominated the game, with Anthony Martial and Marouane Fellaini spurning chances, but West Brom nearly snatched victory when David de Gea palmed Darren Fletcher's shot against the bar.
