With none of their rivals winning in midweek and only Leicester City of the top four getting a point, Manchester United's 1-0 win over Watford took them level on 47 points with rivals Manchester City, in fifth place and now with the chance to finish in the Champions League places.

Juan Mata's goal late on at Old Trafford gave United their fourth straight win in all competitions. After this game at The Hawthorns they face Premier League rivals Liverpool in the Europa League.

They visit West Bromwich Albion who are unbeaten in their last three league games, taking seven points from a possible nine, with the draw at league leaders Leicester City on Tuesday taking them into 13th place, 12 points clear of the relegation zone.

When the teams met at Old Trafford earlier this season, United won 2-0 with goals from Jesse Lingard and a Mata penalty after Albion's Gareth McAuley was dismissed.

United's record at The Hawthorns is good; in nine Premier League visits they are unbeaten, winning seven and drawing two including Sir Alex Ferguson's last ever game in charge, the 5-5 stalemate in May 2013. Albion last beat United at home in 1984 in the old First Division.

Albion are without Claudio Yacob, who is banned after collecting a 10th yellow card of the season at Leicester. Chris Brunt remains on the sidelines while Jonny Evans is a doubt and there are tests for Callum McManaman and James Morrison.

United, meanwhile, test Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Marouane Fellaini, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling while Wayne Rooney, Luke Shaw and Bastian Schweinsteiger are still absent.
