Dimitar Berbatov picks Man United’s front-three who should start against West Brom

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has picked his preferred choice of front-three to face-off against West Brom when the two sides meet in the Premier League tomorrow evening.

United are scheduled to host the Baggies in the league tomorrow when the game kicks-off at 8pm UK time.

Speaking ahead of the exciting clash tomorrow, ex-United marksman Berbatov has weighed in on the argument surrounding who manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should pick as his best front-three.

Writing in his Betfair column, the now retired Bulgarian said: “Edinson Cavani was sent off for a rash challenge while playing for Uruguay against Brazil in midweek. I don’t think this necessarily shows there’s fire in the forward. We already knew he had plenty of passion, otherwise he wouldn’t have such a fantastic goal-scoring record.

“I want the big Uruguayan to score more for United, after getting his first against Everton a couple of weeks ago, but to do that he needs to play more minutes.

“I want to see Cavani play down the middle, with Anthony Martial on the left and Marcus Rashford to the right. When he has come on, Cavani has looked sharp so far for United and made some excellent runs. At 33, he’s in great shape and, with young guys around him, he could be lethal for United.

“Saturday’s home match against struggling West Brom would be a perfect opportunity for Solskjaer to play Cavani in the centre of the United attack.”
