Pulis Urges West Brom To Go For Goals Against Zlatan Inspired United

Pulis Urges West Brom To Go For Goals Against Zlatan Inspired United

West Brom manager Tony Pulis wants his team to continue their scoring form when they take on  Manchester United at The Hawthorns on Saturday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com

The Baggies have scored ten goals in their last three home games and Pulis whose side sits seventh in the English Premier League table is wary of the threat United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic will pose to his side in the encounter.

Pulis also praises Jose Mourinho for his feat so far at Old Trafford despite recent results not favoring the Red Devils.

"Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a magnificent footballer and he's been great at whatever club he has been at. He has all the tools," Pulis began during his pre-match conference on Friday.

"Jose is a top manager and he will get it right at United. They've got threats from everywhere, whichever team he picks,

"United have played games where they've not won, but have dominated possession and chances.

"United are on an unbeaten run and they deserve respect. I think they'll finish in the top four. It'll be tough for us,

"We will look forward to the game. We've got momentum, we're scoring lots of goals at home. Hopefully that can continue.

"United are going to be a massive challenge for us tomorrow. They've drawn four or five games where they could've won this year."

Pulis also praises hat trick hero, Salomon Rondon for his heroics against Swansea.

Rondon took his goal tally to seven goals in 16 games and Pulis is convinced his Venezuelan forward has finally settled in at the Hawthorns.

"We have some talented boys at this club. They need to go out and learn the game and know that the result means everything," 

"Salomon feels more part of the group this year and his English is a lot better. He can concentrate more on his football.

"The group really like Rondon because of the effort he puts in. You have to drag him in from training every day.

"Rondon is really settled here now and is benefiting from that. The football club have been brilliant with him.

He also reveals Jonny Evans is battling to be fit to face his former club.

"Jonny is one of the ones we won't know about until we train.

"We will assess the players this afternoon when they do a light session. There's a couple who have little knocks.

"Saido played the other night for the second team. He needs to keep getting games."
