Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. West Bromwich Albion

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League meeting with West Bromwich Albion.

Manchester United return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon as they travel to The Hawthorns to take on West Bromwich Albion.

While United's top-flight form has been indifferent over recent weeks, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer watched his team overcome West Ham United in the FA Cup on Tuesday evening.

However, extra time was required to defeat the Hammers, potentially leaving the Norwegian with decisions to make regarding his next team selection.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the visit to the West Midlands.
