United head into Saturday’s clash with the Baggies in fourth place in the Premier League table and two points behind leaders Manchester City.
Wayne Rooney scored the winner as United beat CSKA in the Champions League group stage on Tuesday evening at Old Trafford following three successive goalless draws for the Red Devils.
Van Gaal’s men were held to a goalless draw by Crystal Palace in their most recent top-flight outing last weekend.
