Our football match prediction:
Against all odds, West Bromwich Albion did well to hold Liverpool to a goalless draw at Anfield on Matchday 17. The Baggies, though, remained in the relegation zone in the Premier League standings and, no doubt, Sunday’s football match against Manchester United is of big importance for the hosts. New coach Alan Pardew has yet to record a win with the Baggies, but his men are definitely capable of matching the Red Devils. Jose Mourinho’s men failed to impress in a 1-0 win over Bournemouth in midweek, but thanks to Romelu Lukaku’s goal they picked up all three points from the match. Man Utd do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment and seeing that key midfielder Paul Pogba has yet to serve his ban, we predict that they will share the spoils with the Baggies at the Hawthorns on Matchday 18.
Highlighted Player (Krychowiak):
Born on 29 January 1990, Grzegorz Krychowiak began his professional career at Bordeaux, but having failed to be given a proper chance to impress by les Girondins, he instead gained valuable first team experience during loan spells with Reims and Nantes. Reims decided to purchase his contract in 2012 and that proved a great decision as the Polish midfielder impressed in two Ligue 1 seasons, scoring 8 goals in 70 appearances to secure a lucrative move to Sevilla. Krychowiak didn’t need a lot of time to prove his worth in Spanish La Liga as he quickly developed into one of the league’s best central midfielders, while helping los Rojiblancos defend the Europa League trophy in 2014/2015. Numerous top clubs have been casting admiring glances his way and it is just a matter of time before the midfielder leaves his current employers for greener pastures. Krychowiak needed some time to become an indispensable member of the Poland national team, but he has since grown into a genuine leader and is now among the first names on the team sheet.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles. A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium. The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
