United open their title defense with an away game in the midlands against West Bromwich Albion. While the champion been busy with transfer market West Brom relatively quiet in the off season, they have just this week signed Irish International Shane Long who was impressive for Reading last season. United might added Wesley Sneijder as well. With already strong squad United should have no problem to brush aside The Baggies at the Hawthrons.
However, United had a bad habit as slow starter at the beginning of the season where they sometimes had unexpected loss.
Prediction: west brom 0 - 3 united
