United full-back Alex Telles is available for selection against the Baggies this weekend, with the Brazilian likely to start due to Luke Shaw being ruled out of action with a hamstring injury.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could also be without both Marcus Rashford and Victor Lindelof, with both players injury doubts with shoulder and back injuries, respectively. Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard, Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo are all ruled out of this weekend’s game through injury too.

So, what will the final score be? And what team will Solskjaer go with against West Brom?

We used FIFA 21 to simulate the outcome of this weekend’s game.

United vs West Brom score predicted using FIFA 21

To set up this simulation, we used kick-off mode within FIFA 21 but didn’t select a team to control; we then selected the teams and watched the match play out by itself, to give us a prediction.

The AI difficulty was set to legendary, with the line-up updated with the latest transfers, injuries and suspensions.

We predict that United could set up in a 4-3-3 formation, with their line-up as follows: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Maguire, Alex Telles; Fred, McTominay, Fernandes; Mata, Martial, Rashford.

We predict that West Brom could set up in a 5-4-1 formation, with the line-up as follows: Johnstone; Furlong, Ivanovic, Bartley, O’Shea, Townsend; Pereira, Gallagher, Livermore, Diangana; Grant.
