Craig Dawson sees central future at West Brom

Craig Dawson sees central future at West Brom

The Northern Ireland defender, who scored the global side's first ever goal at a European Championship finals at Euro 2016, recently signed for another season with the Baggies.

Matt Phillips continues to struggle with a hamstring injury and he is likely to remain out.

West Brom have won three of their last seven games against United since Sir Alex Ferguson left Old Trafford in 2013.

This is a Saturday, May 9, 2015 file photo of West Bromwich Albion's manager Tony Pulis as he waits the start of their English Premier League soccer match between Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion at St James' Park, Newcastle, England.

"I think next year he'll add to it again, they'll be there or thereabouts".

"The think with Mourinho is he knows how to win, and he knows how to win at the top with big clubs".

However, with a victory over Middlesbrough in the last round, Mourinho's troops have moved over Arsenal and they are now four points (but have two games less) below fourth-placed Liverpool.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis: "There's no complacency". Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:30pm BST.

With a Champions League spot still up for grabs in both the Premier League top-four race and the Europa League, in which United have progressed to the quarter-final stage, the final verdict on their season is still far from being reached.

Expect the Portuguese to be in full-on whinge mode too over the next few weeks with nine games to play in April and the potential of just a few days of rest squeezed in between games for his squad.

McAuley has scored seven goals for the Baggies this season and has made 208 appearances for the club since joining on a free transfer in 2011.

Asked about Rooney's availability, Mourinho said in a press conference: "Yes, he is ready and available to play." .

West Brom have scored more goals from defenders (12) than any other Premier League team this season.

West Bromwich Albion have outrun their opponents in a league-high 93% of their matches in the Premier League this season (27/29), including the last 19 games in a row.

Manchester United: De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Rojo, Blind; Carrick; Lingard, Mata, Mkhitaryan, MArtial; Rashford.
