‘They’ve got fantastic players,’ West Brom man looks ahead to United clash

West Brom - The Hawthorns

James Morrison looks ahead to West Bromwich Albion's game against Manchester United.

West Bromwich Albion midfielder James Morrison has been looking ahead to his side’s Premier League encounter with Manchester United on Monday evening.

In an interview with the Baggies’ official website, the Scotland international said, “I don’t think there is a right time to play Manchester United.

“They have got some fantastic players. They are top professionals and their manager seems to be really strict.”

Monday’s game will be the two sides’ first matches since the international break, and it will be interesting to see how many of those who travelled long distances in the last week feature from the start.

United have overcome a shaky start to climb into the top five and a win at The Hawthorns will take them just three points behind second-placed Manchester City.

But West Brom have hopes of their own, and after getting wins under their belt in recent weeks, they will be hoping to climb further up the table with a victory over one of the most expensive squads ever assembled in the top flight.
