Manchester United have a trip to West Brom this weekend as they attempt to get their title challenge back on track.

Manchester United ground out a hard-fought 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon.

Chelsea drew level on points with the Red Devils after beating Southampton 1-0 yesterday thanks to a Marcos Alonso free-kick. It won't be a straightforward match, as they come up against a West Brom team that is difficult to break down. He poked it home, and the game lurched back to life.

Phil has been lauded by the Portuguese but unless he's regularly fit for the club it's unlikely that he will be given much leeway in the future.

"There is a pressure in terms of where we are in the league".

They will then take on Leicester City in the top flight on Saturday night. West Brom have won only twice this season, therefore this fixture is one that the visitors should be winning. Meanwhile, Arsenal and Manchester City are also keen to sign the player, having registered their interest in the summer. And then, after 26 minutes, they were ahead, and Foster had no chance.

And who could else it be but Alan Pardew? .

Things might have got worse for United in the closing stages but Brunt's superb left-wing cross was headed wide of the near post by fellow substitute Jay Rodriguez.

Yet United scored on 28 minutes as Burke was punished fully for squandering possession cheaply on the West Brom right.

Lukaku is back to scoring goals. The game was played at The Hawthorns. Play continued and Rashford, who seemed to overreact to what was something in nothing, ended up getting booked after he pursued Hegazi and the two squared up.

At the other end, Albion were toothless.

And former Manchester United defender Neville was clearly impressed by Lukaku's contribution after he netted the opening goal on Sunday. Lukaku is at his best in fast-flowing attacks, rather than slow build-up play.

Jonny Evans then connected from a corner mid-way through the first period but his header only served to float over the bar.

But the former Nottingham Forest man, who was making his full Premier League debut, could not bring the ball under control.

The club will not tolerate the issues forever, especially the City bust-up and Mkhitaryan mess.

Do YOU think Evans would be a good signing for Man Utd in January?

Eric Bailly has been ruled out until February after it was decided he needed surgery on an ankle injury while Michael Carrick is still unavailable due to a heart condition.
