Sports Mole previews Saturday's match between Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford.

Manchester United will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they host West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

David Moyes's side suffered a heavy defeat to local rivals Manchester City last Sunday, although they did secure a 1-0 win over Liverpool in the League Cup on Wednesday evening.

West Brom come into the match off the back of a penalty shootout defeat to Arsenal in the same competition.

Moyes has no new injury concerns and may be tempted to hand a start to Javier Hernandez, who scored the winning goal against Liverpool.

Midfielders Shinji Kagawa and Nani are also in contention to start, while striker Robin van Persie may miss the match as he continues his recovery from a groin injury.

West Brom boss Steve Clarke is expected to recall goalkeeper Boaz Myhill and midfielder Manuel Amalfitano after both were rested against Arsenal.
