Manchester United host West Brom at Old Trafford this weekend looking to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.
The Red Devils defeated Newcastle 4-3 last time out with a last-gasp winner from Javier Hernandez.
The little Mexican is likely to have a run in the starting line-up with Wayne Rooney out of action for up to three weeks.
United are currently seven points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.
The visitors are enjoying a stellar season and are currently only out of the Champions League spots on goal difference. However, they have a poor defensive record away from home, having failed to keep a clean on their travels this season. This encounter definitely promises goals.
Meanwhile, United’s arch-rivals and champions Manchester City face a tough trip to Norwich. The champions suffered a 1-0 defeat at Sunderland in their last top flight outing and looked lacklustre. The defeat in the North East left Roberto Mancini’s side trailing their neighbours by seven points.
The Canaries recent run of good form has stalled in recent weeks and suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Chelsea on Boxing Day. However, Chris Hughton’s team have a good recent record at home and earlier this season defeated Arsenal at Carrow Road.
One of the biggest games of the weekend sees fifth place Everton host third place Chelsea at Goodison Park on Sunday. The home side have claimed two consecutive victories in the race for Champions League football next season.
Chelsea have also found form of late under unpopular boss Rafa Benitez and the Blues could go within a point of Manchester City, should the champions slip-up in Norfolk and the European champions claim victory on Merseyside.
