Michael Owen has backed Manchester United to win against West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

United will take on West Brom at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

The Red Devils will head into the match against the Baggies on the back of a 3-1 victory over Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the league before the two-week international break.

United are 14th in the Premier League table at the moment with 10 points from seven matches.

Meanwhile, West Brom currently find themselves third from bottom in the standings with three points from eight matches.

Slaven Bilic’s side suffered a 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at The Hawthorns in the Premier League before the international break.

Former United striker Owen believes that the Red Devils will pick up all three points from the match against the Baggoes.

While predicting United to beat West Brom 2-0, Owen said: “West Brom come into this after a string of poor results. Aside from putting three past Chelsea, they haven’t looked great at the back and have been equally poor going forward.

“United have still to find their rhythm and they must find a way to get their best players all on the pitch at the same time, which is obviously easier said than done.

“You can’t keep Pogba on the bench, and if he can’t secure a regular place in the side soon, he may have to consider his options. For all United are inconsistent, they are up against a side that are really struggling, and I expect them to win this comfortably.”
