Man of the Match: Ben Foster (West Bromwich Albion)
West Bromwich Albion have lost just one of their last five Premier League visits to Old Trafford (W3 D1 L1), with their only loss in this run coming in November 2015 (0-2).
This was just the second time in Premier League history that Manchester United have lost at Old Trafford to a side starting that day as the bottom of the league club – the other game was a 2-3 defeat to Blackburn Rovers in December 2011.
Since Jose Mourinho was named as Manchester United manager in the summer of 2016, four clubs have won more points in the Premier League than the Red Devils (140) – Manchester City (165), Chelsea (153), Tottenham Hotspur (153) and Liverpool (146).
Darren Moore has already equalled Alan Pardew’s total Premier League wins (1 in 18 games) as WBA manager in just his second game as boss (1).
Moore has led WBA to four points in his two games as caretaker manager (W1 D1 L0), the same tally of points that Alan Pardew secured in his final 11 Premier League games as manager (W1 D1 L9).
Jay Rodriguez has scored as many goals in his last four Premier League appearances (3) as he did in his previous 26 combined.
Rodriguez’s seven goals have won WBA six points this season in the Premier League and have been worth more to his side than goals from Gabriel Jesus (10 goals – 2 points), Roberto Firmino (15 goals – 4 points), Alexandre Lacazette (11 goals – 4 points), Alvaro Morata (11 goals, 4 points) and Jamie Vardy (17 goals – 5 points) to name but a few.
