West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Manchester United live broadcast! Fernandez Goal – Premier League, Latest Score, Updates
Manchester United need to beat struggling West Bromwich Albion to preserve the Premier League title this afternoon.

Meanwhile, Bages have only scored one point from their last five matches – a draw with struggling teammates Fulham – and they are now 13 points off safety with a mountain they must climb to avoid relegation.
