Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United failed to take more than a point from their game against the Baggies at the weekend and lost a chance to put the pressure on the team above them in the points table.
They were unable to breach and West Brom side that was happy to sit back and defend all night as Jose Mourinho’s side were frustrated with some brave defending from the visiting Crystal Palace side at the weekend.
However, it does not get any easier for Manchester United along the road as they are now ready to welcome Ronald Koeman’s Everton to the Old Trafford on Tuesday.
The Merseyside outfit tasted defeat in the derby at Anfield recently and will hope to hit back strongly by taking at least a point from their trip to Manchester this week.
Here is the team news and predicted lineup for the Red Devils for this tie:
Date: Tuesday, 4th April
Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester
KO: 8:00 pm (12:30 am IST on Wednesday)
Defenders Phil Jones (ankle) and Chris Smalling (knee) are ruled out with long-term injuries and are not making a return anytime soon. Playmaker Juan Mata (groin) is also out with a niggle but French international Paul Pogba (hamstring), who was out of the previous game, is expected to be back in action. Ander Herrera and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are also available for selection, having finished their suspensions.
Expected lineup (4-3-3):
David de Gea; Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young; Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini, Paul Pogba; Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Anthony Martial, Zlatan Ibrahimovic
