Jose Mourinho's side head to the Hawthorns looking to stretch their unbeaten run - here is how you can see all the action.

At the start of the season, not many people would have expected West Brom versus Manchester United in mid-December to pit seventh against sixth in the Premier League.

The Baggies were expected to be scrapping it out in mid-table rather than flirting with Europe, while many anticipated a United title challenge given their expensive summer recruitment both in the dugout and on the pitch.

Mourinho's men have improved of late, and visit the West Midlands protecting a run that has seen them go seven matches without defeat in the Premier League. Albion, meanwhile, have won four of their last six matches as they continue to surpass expectations.

The Key Battle - Salomon Rondon vs Phil Jones

Rondon's 13-minute hat-trick in the midweek win over Swansea was the latest instalment of his impressive season, and took his 2016/17 tally to seven.

Looking to stop the in-form striker will be Phil Jones, who has been solid since his return to the United back four after a lengthy injury lay-off.

Last Meeting:

The Baggies claimed a 1-0 win in March's meeting at the Hawthorns, with Rondon's strike punishing a 10-man United side who had earlier seen Juan Mata sent off.

That was the latest of 43 Albion victories in this fixture, with United having emerged victorious on 54 occasions.
