Mark Lawrenson is backing Manchester United to ease to a 3-0 win over West Brom in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Red Devils head into the game after having had a full week off following their brilliant derby win at the Etihad Stadium.

Paul Pogba scored two second-half goals before Chris Smalling netted the winner for the visitors as Jose Mourinho’s men came from two goals down to claim all three points.

Manchester United are now preparing to welcome West Brom to Old Trafford as they look to continue their recent good form.

The Red Devils are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they bid to finish as runners-up to Manchester City this season.

And former Liverpool FC star Lawrenson is not expecting the Red Devils to have any problems against the Baggies at Old Trafford this weekend.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: “West Brom could go down if Saturday’s results go against them and then they lose this game.

“It is hard to see anything but a defeat for the Baggies at Old Trafford but, more pertinently, I want to know which Manchester United team we are going to see – the one from the first half at Etihad Stadium, or the one from the second half.

“After the break, when United roared back from 2-0 down to win the derby, it appeared they were just let off the leash, which manager Jose Mourinho does not normally do.

“They looked very good and players like Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba came alive. United fans will want to see more of the same.”

Manchester United are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they look to finish as runners-up to their bitter local rivals.

Mourinho’s men will take on Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-finals later this month as they look to end the campaign with a trophy.
