Sky Sports pundit Lewis Jones has backed West Brom to fall to a massive defeat against Manchester United on Saturday.
Jones or the “betting expert” has predicted that the Baggies will lose 3-0 at Old Trafford, and continue their run without a win in the Premier League.
Slaven Bilic is still searching for his first top-flight win with the Albion, but they came desperately close against Spurs.
Jones joked that a Liverpool fan suggested this was a relegation clash, before backing the Red Devils to keep a clean-sheet.
“A real six-pointer,” according to a Liverpool supporting mate of mine,” he said. “Cheeky.”
“I did point out in reply that United are just a win away from seventh and very much in the running for a top-four finish.
“This should be a much easier and less stressful evening for his side. Slaven Bilic’s boys have not scored in four of their last five matches and counting last season too, have not won a football match in 12 attempts.”
It is hard to think that it will be anything but a massive challenge on Saturday, but Bilic has managed to draw massive levels of fight out of the squad recently.
Callum Robinson, Matheus Pereira and Branislav Ivanovic should be ready for the clash at Old Trafford and that will be a massive boost.
Manchester United, on the other hand, have major problems, with Luke Shaw, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani all either out or massive doubts.
This could be the perfect time to face the Red Devils, and the Baggies could definitely spring a surprise on many.
