Baggies not a problem for United

United have a terrific record against West Brom and are 1.3 shots with bet365 and Betfred to beat them at Old Trafford and maintain their lead at the top of the table.

The Red Devils have won 10 and lost none of their 12 Premier League games against the Baggies, and the visitors have won none and lost 10 of their last 13 trips to Manchester.

Sir Alex’s side come into the game 7 points clear of their nearest pursuers in the league following a dramatic 4-3 win over Newcastle on Boxing Day, and despite letting in goals are scoring plenty at the other end.

As far as who will get the opener in this is concerned there are several players with good records against West Brom.

Wayne Rooney has scored four goals in his last three league appearances against them but is unfortunately ruled out with a knee injury.

Nani and Hernandez have both scored in two of their three appearances against the Baggies, and can be backed at 9 and 5 respectively with bet365.

Robin van Persie, who has now scored 61 goals in his last 74 Premier League appearances since January 2011, is not surprisingly favourite once again to break the deadlock at 3.6 with sportingbet and makes plenty of appeal to do so.

Over 2.5 goals looks a really solid bet at a standout 1.53 with Ladbrokes, and I fancy United to win this 3-0 or 4-0.

Those scorelines can be backed at 9.5 and 15 respectively with Coral.
