Manchester United head to the Hawthorns in the second Premier League match today, as they take on a West Brom side that was rejuvenated under Roy Hodgson last year.
West Brom: Foster, Reid, Tamas, Olsson, Shorey, Brunt, Scharner, Mulumbu, Morrison, Tchoyi, Long. Bench: Cox, Dorrans, Jara, Thorne, Fortuné, Dawson, Fulop.
Manchester United: De Gea; Smalling, Vidic, Ferdinand, Fabio; Nani, Anderson, Cleverley, Young; Rooney, Welbeck. Bench: Lindegaard, Jones, Evans, Berbatov, Giggs, Park, Carrick
Interesting for United as Chris Smalling starts at right-back, and Fabio, Cleverley, and Welbeck also come in for a very youthful side. In addition, Anderson in midfield means this is a very attack-minded, pacy United team.
West Brom give a start to £7m signing Shane Long, who joined from reading this transfer window. Peter Odemwingie, the Baggies’ top scorer last season, and Graham Dorrans miss out.
