Manchester United – West Brom is an intriguing clash on Saturday (start time, 3 p.m. ET on Peacock Premium) at Old Trafford

On paper, United are expected to march to victory, but strange results still seem to emerge right after an international break

United will be hopeful they won’t be in the hands of a huge upheaval as they seek a first home PL victory of the season against a West Brom side that haven’t won any of their first eight games of the season

West Brom has been unlucky so far this season, as Slaven Bilic’s side have been tough to break, but scoring goals remains a big deal

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs his squad to kick in after a sloppy start to the season and it looks like the perfect opportunity to do so

Manchester United have many concerns but Marcus Rashford returns after a slight shoulder problem, while Luke Shaw, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are definitely out Victor Lindelof starts but continues to struggle with a back problem, while Edinson Cavani could rest after long comeback after Uruguay games in South America Alex Telles replaces injured Shaw

West Brom has Matheus Pereira and Branislav Ivanovic back after both missing the game against Tottenham before the break due to a positive COVID-19 test, but there are new COVID-19 positives as Jake Livermore and Kieran Gibbs miss Callum Robinson also tested positive on his international service and Bilic is waiting to collect test results to see who is available Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Field remain injured

Paul Pogba on his season so far at Man United: “It’s a period that I haven’t experienced before in my career because I used to play all the time and ‘get into my rhythm, then it’s suddenly changed I feel I’m getting back to it gradually I’m rediscovering my form “

Slaven Bilic on COVID-19 testing: “Hope they all are going to be good, but we’ve had a few cases, yes (It’s) confidential We can’t say the names Let’s say a few, but the good thing is that players like Pereira and Ivanovic are back They trained this week so they should be fine for the game against Man United Callum Robinson left (absent) for Ireland but he got a positive test He is in good shape, he had a test last night and the results came in this morning He is negative so we hope to see today, but they should (all) be fine “

Manchester United (-334) is the favorite and West Brom (850) is the big underdog The draw at 425 is also a huge prize considering United’s struggles so far this season
