West Brom: Aiming for third win in a row at Manchester United

Swansea City must improve on a dreadful recent record at Norwich City if they are to turn around their poor Premier League form.

Team news

Morgan Schneiderlin is expected to return for Manchester United after missing their midweek Champions League win over CSKA Moscow, but Antonio Valencia remains a doubt with a foot injury, while Matteo Darmian definitely misses out through suspension.

West Brom, meanwhile, have doubts over “one or two” unnamed players, according to Tony Pulis, but James Morrison is in contention to start after returning from injury as a substitute against Leicester City last weekend.
