Michael Owen predicts what will happen in Monday’s Premier League clash between West Bromwich Albion and Manchester United at The Hawthorns.

Michael Owen believes that there will be lots of goals in Monday’s Premier League clash between West Bromwich Albion and Manchester United.

The former United striker seems to be looking forward to the encounter at The Hawthorns and wrote on Betvictor.com: ‘This game famously finished 5-5 in Sir Alex Ferguson’s last game in charge of United a couple of seasons ago and I fully expect to see goals, and plenty of them, at the Hawthorns on Monday evening’.

Given how United have defended so far this season, Owen’s prediction that there will be ‘plenty’ of goals on Monday could well come true.

The Manchester outfit have conceded 10 goals in seven Premier League fixtures this season – one more than West Brom.

However, Louis van Gaal’s side have one of the most fearsome attacking units in entire Europe. With Robin van Persie, Radamel Falcao, Angel di Maria and Juan Mata in full flow, United are expected to score goals at West Brom.
