West Brom Dent Man Utd's Top Four Hopes

Manchester United's top four hopes took a dent, after they were held to 0-0 draw by West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford.
United were without the services of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ander Herrera through suspension, while Juan Mata underwent groin surgery earlier in the week.
The home side carved out their first meaningful chance after 26 minutes when Jesse Lingard found Anthony Martial, who headed wide from close range.
Mourinho's charges dominated the encounter from the onset but were finding it tough to break down the West Bromm defence for most of the first half.
The visitors, meanwhile, were quite happy to sit back and soak up the pressure with the hope of catching the Red Devils on the break.
Maroune Fellaini should have given United the lead in the 53rd minute, but the Belgian fired wide of the upright from 12-yards out.
Ben Foster came to West Brom's rescue in the 66th minute as he produced a fine save to keep out Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
With the home side struggling to break down West Brom, Mourinho introduced Wayne Rooney for Mkhitaryan as they pushed for a winning goal.
Foster was at his best again in the 87th minute as he pulled off a stunning save to keep out Marcus Rashford's powerful free-kick.
However, Mourinho's men failed to find the back of the net and were forced to settle for a point at home.
