Manchester United-West Brom: Live Blog, Play-by-Play and Analysis

Nathan LoweAnalyst IOctober 16, 2010

Contains no spoilers of other live EPL matches.

 

Welcome to Matchday Eight.

The rumors are true: Wayne Rooney rested in Rooney Shock Horror!

Seriously, though: United need points. Winless over two, the Red Devils welcome somehow-sixth-place West Brom to Old Trafford this afternoon. It's a recipe for a 3-0 for the home side.

The Baggies are overachieving and can certainly afford to drop a few points. Despite that, smaller clubs tend to perform better after international breaks since they generally have less players away on assignment.

United should be very hungry. Ferdinand and Vidic have partnered well recently and that looks to continue. Berbatov and Scholes should form a well-rested offensive core. I'm excited.

Sit down, stand up or levitate; enjoy the game starting at 7:00 AM PST, 1500 GMT.
