Manchester United fans will hope their club can pick up another three points this weekend when they host West Brom to Old Trafford.



Just before the international break, Manchester United came from going two goals down to defeat Everton 3-2,with Bruno Fernandes scoring twice.

All Ole Gunnar Solskjaer players have returned from their various international duties and every one seems to be in the right Fram of mind ahead of the game this weekend. 

Although, one worry for Solskjaer happen to be Victor Lindelof. It's been reported that Victor Lindelof will require a late fitness test ahead of the game. 

Reports suggests that the Swedish international is struggling with a back problem. 

Lindelof has been a consist player for the Red Devils so far this season haven started six of United’s seven games in the Premier League this season. 

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Solskjaer said : “We’ll have to check Victor tomorrow because his back is not great.

“He had it last season as well, and I think it’s more to do with when the games come thick and fast. I think when he gets a few days of extra recovery he should be all right.”

Meanwhile, the manager also revealed he watched his defender's performance during the international break. Lindelof played in Sweden win against Croatia, but he had his back problem the second game in their  4-2 defeat to France. He was substituted off after 66 minutes as Les Bleus went ahead to claim victory. 

“He felt really well and comfortable in the first game for Sweden, after the rest in the friendly game,” Solskjaer said. “Then he started feeling it again against France and the games are coming thick and fast. 

“It is an issue that we have to manage but hopefully we don’t have to do any surgery or anything serious.”

Also, Manchester United will have to face struggling West Brom without Luke Shaw. The English full back has suffered an hamstring problem which made him pull put of England's squad during the international break. 

This means likes of Alex Telles and youngster Brandon Williams might have the opportunity of being selected for the starting IX. 

On the left back position: “We’ve got options at full-back, so I’m not worried about that,” Solskjaer said
