While losing 2-1 to Liverpool could have been seen as a good result for West Brom in Anfield such is the form of the midlands club that many were disappointed. To be honest though the baggies were value for money in that game and I think a draw would have been the correct result. Berahino is off to a flyer this season scoring five in seven appearances and will surely fancy his chances against a Manchester United side who have been completely unable to defend this season. West Brom have a solid team from back to front with a good goalkeeper in Foster a decent midfield with Brunt, Gardner and Mulumba and a top class finisher in Berahino who is surely destined for a role with England.
For Manchester United fans this season , while better than last , is still very up and down. The additions of Herrera, Di Maria, Falcao has brought a huge amount of optimism to Old Trafford but at the moment the problems are very much defensive. With the loss of Vidic, Evra and Ferdinand it was always going to be difficult for Manchester United to settle a completely new defence. Louis Van Gaal is starting to get to grips with the Premier League but at the moment all he is looking for is results. Its vital to United that they get back in the Champions League next year and they must finish in the top four for that. Ange Di Maria has been a revelation since his arrival from Real Madrid, Falcao and Van Persie look like a perfect partnership the question is can United defend well enough to win these games?
Those who have been following my regular articles here will know that at the moment my favourite bet for Manchester United games are the overs. WIth such a potent offence and such a poor defence Manchester United are an overs bettors dream. I am taking the overs here and will spread a little on the first half overs as well.
