Saturday, 17 December 2016, 17:30 BT Sport 1 West Brom's former Manchester United defender Jonny Evans faces a fitness test after missing the midweek win over Swansea because of a calf injury. Craig Dawson is available after serving a one-match suspension for collating five bookings. Henrik Mkhitaryan will miss out for United after being stretchered off with an ankle injury in the win over Spurs. Antonio Valencia and Chris Smalling return to the squad but Eric Bailly is a out with a fresh knee problem. WBA last 6: WWDWLW United last 6: WDDDWW Score prediction: 1-1
KO 8pm @ Selhurst Park Martial has not travelled with the squad. What's the story? United are in buoyant mood after a welcome win against Tottenham on Sunday. The victory took the Reds to sixth in the table, three points adrift of Spurs, and the hope is a positive run of results over this busy festive period can nudge Jose Mourinho's men closer to the teams at the top. Palace will be out to avenge last season's FA Cup final defeat at Wembley and the pressure appears to have eased on manager Alan Pardew after a convincing 3-0 win over Southampton and entertaining 3-3 draw at Hull City, where ex-Reds striker Fraizer Campbell scored against another of his former clubs in the closing stages to earn a point. There have been 36 goals in the Eagles' last seven outings, suggesting it could be an exciting encounter in midweek. How did we fare against Palace last season? As well as winning at Wembley, the Reds gained four points against the London club in the Premier League. Matteo Darmian scored his only United goal to date in the 2-0 home victory in April after a 0-0 draw in the away fixture on Hallowe'en 2015. What's the latest team news?...
Thursday, 8 December, 18:00 BT Sport 3 I see there is a thread for Tottenham at the weekend but not for Zorya midweek. It's rare to look forward to a game with some confidence so I don't want to miss this chance! Zorya are in awful form, losing 3-2 at home to Dnipro at the weekend, failing to win any of their last four domestic games (W0 D2 L2) or any of their Europa Group Stage games (W0 D2 L3). This has 'comfortable United win' written all over it especially with the pressure off as we only need a draw to qualify for the knockout round. Zorya 0-3 United.
Well, after tonights result against Everton, we have to win at all costs against Tottenham Hotspurs next week. We have the players to do it, and if all goes well, we could gain some points on Spurs but with the extra 3 points and their superior goal difference, it will be a few games before we can swap places in the league table. Should we win, we would have secured our 6th place, however, should we lose, then Stoke City, Everton and West Bromwich Albion could push us down to 9th place in the league. However, I cannot see Stoke City or West Brom winning against Arsenal or Chelsea, but Everton could push us down to 7th place.
So, it would be great to hear your thoughts on this Argentinian player who makes Rojo look like Des Walker. I mean, John Stones is actually bad, but Otamendi is another level of shiteness, shiteness which is reserved for the Football conference North Division, which is where he belongs. I often think about it when I watch Argentina play and I think to myself, Messi really does have some mediocre players. With respect, being the GOAT, and having Romero in goal, and having defenders like Rojo and Otamendi, I would fucking retire too. I am just so happy that we missed the boat with him.
