Match Preview: Man Utd vs WBA

Manchester United need just two more wins to seal a spot in the Champions League for next season, and there will be no better opportunity to get back to winning ways whilst playing West Brom at home.

The game sees Darren Fletcher return to Old Trafford for the first time since leaving in January, and there will be no doubt that the former hero will get a stunning welcome from the crowd who admired him for many years.

Injury News

Manchester United have a mini injury crisis on their hands at the moment, with Louis van Gaal without Michael Carrick, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, Jonny Evans and Phil Jones is also a doubt.

The Iron Tulip will have to shuffle his pack here, and we could see the return of Robin van Persie, with Wayne Rooney dropping back into the midfield.
