Pulis urges West Brom's youngsters to step up ahead of hectic week

Gareth Mc Auley has scored seven goals for West Brom this season

While West Brom chip away exclusively in the Premier League, Jose Mourinho is attempting to keep a number of balls in the air with chances to win the FA Cup and Europa League as well.

Here's a flavour of what the players have been talking about ahead of the 15:00 BST kick-off... "When I signed I just wanted to play in the Premier League and knew that wasn't a given when I came here".

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis has urged the club's academy players to raise their game as he plans to make changes to his squad in order to cope with their packed Premier League schedule. West Brom have had the global break to recover from the exertions that brought them a 3-1 win against Arsenal, but it would be a big surprise to see them produce a similar display here.

With West Brom clearly expected to set-up primarily to avoid conceding, the 27-year old will have to be patient and alert to any breakaway chance he might be expected to put away.

All this suggests that we're likely to see an uneventful clash on Saturday afternoon, and we think that Man United will struggle to break through in the absence of Ibrahimovic.

ASHLEY YOUNG Speaking of goals against West Brom, Youngy had one taken off him during his Premier League debut for United back in 2011, when his heavily-deflected shot memorably clinched a 2-1 win at The Hawthorns.

Johns County still on top in annual the County Health Rankings
This year the rankings took a closer look at premature deaths - or deaths that occur among people under age 75. About 4.9 million young people in the United States - 1 out of 8 - fall into this category, the report said.

A visiting player has been sent off in two of the last three Premier League games between these two (Juan Mata in March 2016, Gareth McAuley in November 2015).

"The think with Mourinho is he knows how to win, and he knows how to win at the top with big clubs".

The striker would be a welcome addition to Tony Pulis' side, with the departure of Saido Berahino in January leaving the Baggies manager with only Salomon Rondon and Hal Robson-Kanu as his options up top.

West Brom have scored more goals from defenders (12) than any other Premier League team this season.

Manchester United have scored with just 9.1% of their shots in the Premier League this season; their lowest shot conversion ratio in the competition in a single season since 2004-05 (8.2%). Another fan said that "with Mourinho moulding the team, maybe in the next three years.if he can stay that long!"
