The Red Devils were tamed in their 4-1 drumming at the Etihad Stadium by rivals Manchester City, but seemed to rebound effectively given their defeat of Liverpool in the Capital One Cup this week.
David Moyes will, however, be aware of the need to offer a positive response in the league - especially in front of home fans at Old Trafford.
It has been a rough start for the Scot, in his first season as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor, but the coming weeks may offer a little hope given the easy schedule that lay ahead.
Moyes has tried to deflect much of the criticism that has come his way early this season, but did not help matters when his team was thoroughly out played by City.
"If people judge me at Manchester United on how we do I can't argue," Moyes told reporters. "If criticism is for the team not playing well, like we did at Manchester City, it is totally deserved."
"But in some cases we have done okay this year and people have chosen to do that. They tell me that is a trait at Manchester United."
Standing next to Moyes on the touchline will be Steve Clarke who saw his side earn their first victory of the season after beating Sunderland last weekend and will look to continue in good form against United.
Unfortunately, history is not on his club's side given that it has been 35 years since West Brom was able to beat United at Old Trafford.
Kick-off for the match is at 10:00 a.m. ET and can be watched online here.
