United in pursuit of premier league top four can become a reality if the current form is maintained.
If Manchester United can manage to avoid defeat against West Albion, it would mark their 10th games in a stretch without a loss. Though such a stat probably would not have something worth bragging for in the years gone by, in a league season that has seen the Old Trafford side beaten by a Watford and humiliated by Chelsea, the constancy the team has seen in recent weeks is quite reassuring to their fans.
Unlike in the reign of Mourinho’s predecessor Louis van Gaal and his predecessor David Moyes, United fans have not complain about the style of the team’s football, but they have not been so happy with the outcomes of games either.
Under Jose Mourinho reign, The Red Devils have averaged more shots per match game this season, more than league current leaders Chelsea, and only city rival, Manchester City has a better passing accuracy, yet when it United are ranked 8th position in the league table when it comes to goals.
Taking a look at the quality players that Manchester United has up front, it keeps one wondering as to why they have drawn so such a large number of games, but the win over Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace gave the fans an image of hope that something better is about to start.
Attacking midfielder Paul Pogba has begun to display his dominance in games, though everything he does is most times dismissed as not good enough because of his record price tag. He netted 1 and assisted teammate Ibrahimovic in the other when United recorded a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace but was still ridiculed by rival supporters on social media, asking that he should be doing much more than he did, and sustaining it every single game.
His linkup play with Swedish Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been excellent so far, with the duo playing as though they have been on the same club team for an extended period.
Zlatan has scored fourteen goals this season, a figure that competes with other strikers, Zlatan has scored eight goals in eight games.
If the display that the Red Devils showed in their last two matches is shown against West Brom, then the fans might have something to cheer about at the end of 90 minutes.
