Albion’s away form has been impressive this season but at the Amex Stadium they have recorded just three wins from 17.

United finished runners-up in last year’s Premier League and Europa League and the summer signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho only fuelled optimism around Old Trafford.

But Ralf Rangnick has failed to get consistent tune out of the squad and they are set to miss out on Champions League qualification.

They did however enjoy victory last time out with Bruno Fernandes, Ronaldo and Raphael Varane sealing a 3-0 victory against Brentford in their final home match of the season at Old Trafford.
