    Team news and stats ahead of Man Utd vs West Brom in the Premier League on Saturday (kick-off 8pm).

    Team news

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must monitor several players ahead of the visit of West Brom.

    Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones were the only players unable to train on the eve of the match, but Solskjaer has suggested Mason Greenwood may not make the game as he returns from illness, and is also waiting to see if Marcus Rashford had any reaction following a shoulder complaint.

    Victor Lindelof will have an ongoing back issue assessed on Saturday, but Alex Telles could make his Premier League debut having been laid low following a positive Covid-19 test.

    Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo continue to build up fitness.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has no doubts about Mason Greenwood's talent or attitude and reminded people of how much progress the Manchester United forward has made in a short space of time

    West Brom expect to have defender Branislav Ivanovic, forward Matheus Pereira and Callum Robinson all available following self-isolation after positive Covid-19 tests.

    Ivanovic and Pereira had both been unavailable for the defeat by Tottenham before the international break, while Robinson has completed his 10-day isolation period after testing positive for the virus while away with the Republic of Ireland.

    Jones Knows' prediction

    "A real six-pointer," according to a Liverpool supporting mate of mine. Cheeky.

    I did point out in reply that United are just a win away from seventh and very much in the running at 5/2 for a top-four finish. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn't the second coming of Sir Alex Ferguson but he's got a team certainly that are top-four quality, whether that's enough or where United need to be is another matter altogether. A rise up the table is forthcoming though.

    Was a corner turned against Everton? It wasn't pretty but once again Solskjaer showed he knows how to get a result when it matters. This should be a much easier and less stressful evening for his side. Slaven Bilic's boys have not scored in four of their last five matches and counting last season too, have not won a football match in 12 attempts.

    The 6/5 for United to win without conceding should be noted for those planning any accumulators this weekend.

    JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 3-0 (7/1 with Sky Bet)
