What is the team news?

Marcus Rashford is expected to be fit to face West Brom. The Manchester United striker missed England’s fixtures with Ireland, Belgium and Iceland after tearing a shoulder in the 1-0 defeat to Arsenal just under three weeks ago.

Anthony Martial and Victor Lindelof are both struggling with back injuries and will be assessed by United to determine their availability. 

United also have concerns over Harry Maguire, who complained of bruising to a foot after England’s 4-0 win over Iceland. Eric Bailly has been out for a month with a muscle injury but is edging closer to a return. 

West Brom will hope to call on Branislav Ivanovic and Matheus Pereira for the clash at Old Trafford. Both missed the Baggies’ 1-0 defeat to Tottenham on November 8 as they were forced to self-isolate.
