A Manchester United team depleted by injuries and suspension host a typically battle-hardened West Bromwich Albion side at Old Trafford on Saturday. This international break has been costly: Defenders Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are both confirmed out with injury, and now it’s been reported that Juan Mata’s season could be over as well. Paul Pogba is still probably unavailable, and Ander Herrera and Zlatan Ibrahimović are both suspended.
With so many missing bodies in midfield and attack, a return to action for Wayne Rooney is likely, and Mourinho has confirmed his availability. In defense, a similar raft of injuries means that the back-line mostly picks itself.
With a hectic April ahead, United will hope to kick off a crucial month with an important win in their chase for Champions League qualification. A repeat of the 0-2 win in the reverse fixture would be welcome. West Brom, with few players having departed on international duty, should enter this one rested and refreshed, and Tony Pulis has no real injury concerns in his squad to manage.
