The Baggies are without a league win in five matches following a 2-0 loss away to Tottenham Hotspur last time out. West Brom have only won twice all season and head into this weekend's fixture in 19th spot, 11 points from safety. 
United were unable to build on their 9-0 win over Southampton as they were held to a 3-3 draw by Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday. 
The Red Devils have struggled for consistency this season and have paid the price, with their latest result having dented their title hopes as they fell five points behind Manchester City, who have won ten on the spin. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was bitterly disappointed with their result against the Toffees and believes his team shouldn't be considered title contenders. 
"We shouldn't even be considered as title-chasers," Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

"We've got to be better as a team and let's see where we end up. Going forward, we need to stop conceding easy goals.

"When it's in the last minute of added time it's very disappointing. I wouldn't blame anyone on the goals but we know we can defend better."

A second-half penalty from Bruno Fernandes led United to a narrow 1-0 win over their opponents in Manchester earlier this season.
