Second, the bottom will face off against second from the top in the Premier League as Manchester United travel to take on West Brom. The match schedules for Sunday at Hawthorns, with kickoff at 5 pm.
The Baggies are currently 11 points off the safety zone for relegation woes, with their survival hopes fading away quickly. Manchester United fall down five points behind league leaders City at the end of the table.
Manchester United was on course to make a stance for their title bid earlier this season after an impressive run of form since the start of the New Year. However, their goalless draw against Arsenal, followed by a loss to Sheffield United, saw the side fall short of a title race bid.
Ole Gunnar continues searching for another title race, with City proving unassailable so far with seven clean home sheets and 14 consecutive wins. However, their away form has been impressive, having lost only one match in their last 17 league outings. No side in the Premier League having picked more points on their travels than the Red Devils.
Sam Allardyce’s appointment is yet to bear any fruits, especially following last weekend’s 2-0 loss to Tottenham. The side has only one point from their last five games and won only one of their last 13 top-flight outings.
