Host commentator

Excellent save by Johnstone!

United pounce on a West Brom error on half-way and they break with Rashford on the left. His ball to the back post finds Bruno Fernandes whose touch lays it on a plate for Martial – his shot is strong but Johnstone does brilliantly down low to his left to keep it out!

Pressure building for United here…

Nice opening for Martial down the right but his cross just evades Marcus Rashford in the middle and the visitors clear before Fred can reach the ball! 

United dominating possession but no accurate penetration in the final third thus far…

Early save for Sam Johnstone to make in goal for West Brom!

Juan Mata’s free-kick finds Anthony Martial at the near-post and his glancing header has to be diverted away from goal by ex-United youth team player Johnstone, diving to his right. 

United, in their usual red, get us underway against a West Brom side in their changed strip of green and white stripes. 

Man Utd: De Gea, Wan Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Alex Telles, Matic, Fred, Mata, Bruno Fernandes, Rashford, Martial

West Brom: Johnstone, Furlong, Ajayi, Bartley, Ivanovic, Townsend, Matheus Pereira, Sawyers, Gallagher, Diangana, Ahearne-Grant

On changes: Ivanovic and Pereira are back, but Jake Livermore and Kieran Gibbs tested positive and we had a couple of players who have returned to training after testing positive and they are on the bench.

On today’s game: The urgency is continue to play the way we did against Spurs. Of course, we’re playing Man Utd. They’re a strong team. But every game is a big opportunity at this stage of the season.

On Pogba: ‘Paul got an ankle injury against Sweden. He tried to finish the training session, but it got worse and worse. Hopefully he’ll be fit for Tuesday.

On Telles: ‘It’s a great chance for him. He’s been waiting a long time to get his chance. He’s got loads of quality that we certainly will get to see here at Old Trafford.

On home form: It’s concerning not to win games. The best game we’ve had was at home with the 5-0 win against Leipzig.

West Brom have won three of their last five away league games against Man Utd (D1 L1), including their last such visit in April 2018 (1-0).

The Baggies had won just one of their last 31 league visits to face Man Utd prior to this run.

Paul Pogba aggravated an injury on international duty in training yesterday so misses out today against West Brom. 

Slaven Bilić has confirmed Jake Livermore and Kieran Gibbs will miss today’s game after testing positive for COVID-19. 

The big news – Paul Pogba is not in the Manchester United squad tonight! 

Good evening and welcome to Sportsmail’s live coverage of Manchester United’s clash against West Brom in the Premier League!
