I feel like there’s not much to explain about this pick. Things are rather clear and simple in my humble opinion, West Brom are hosting Manchester United and we have an interesting situation. Manchester United are not going to be champions of England obviously, City are just too good and running away with the league already.
After losing Manchester derby at Old Trafford United are not playing good enough anymore.
A lot of British media and pundits from football tv channels are saying that Mourinho just does not have that extra edge to play attacking football constantly like Guardiola does with City.
I feel like this is all pissing Mourinho off because it’s true, he knows it and this why he started doing and saying stupid things to remove that negative attention from him, his bad results and his players to some other drama. West Brom are very weak scoring side, they have scored 0 goals in last 3 played games.
United are looking traumatized after losing to City and they barely beat Bournemouth with 1:0 and they were playing at home.
