PHOTO: Louis van Gaal on The Hawthorns pitch ahead of West Bromwich Albion v Manchester United in Premier League

West Bromwich Albion will host Manchester United at The Hawthorns in the Premier League this evening.

The Manchester United players have arrived at The Hawthorns for their Premier League clash against West Bromwich Albion this evening.

Kickoff is at 8pm, and United manager Louis van Gaal has been inspecting the pitch, a photo of which is below.

It seems that Van Gaal is not bothered with the ‘Please keep off the grass’ sign, which is meant for spectators, of course.

What Van Gaal will be bothered with is his players’ performance and the final result. United will head into the Premier League game as the favourites, but winning against West Brom away from home is not easy.
