Albion have been urged to make their own luck on a big occasion at the Amex.

Graham Potter’s men would love to secure a fourth home win of the Premier League season as they take on Manchester United today (5.30pm).

They were desperately unfortunate to go down 3-2 in the fixture last season, hitting the woodwork FIVE times before conceding a VAR-adjudged penalty in what appeared an excessive period of added time.

They have also arguably deserved better than two defeats in their subsequent games at Old Trafford.

Graham Potter insists there will be no thoughts of last season’s highly contentious encounter when the sides walk out before a packed house today.

Albion’s head coach told The Argus: “I think it is more the fact we are playing Manchester United, which is always a special game.

“The guys will be excited for that.

“We are in a good place, we are in a good moment.

“We know, regardless of what we have done previously, we have to play well.

“You have to be perfect and have a little bit of luck and maybe we haven’t had that.

“You have to make that yourself and we have to perform well.”

Albion are eyeing a top-ten finish and complete their season against teams who are chasing European spots or, in the case of Leeds next Sunday, battling relegation.

Defender Joel Veltman said: “That’s more tough for them and we can play more freely.

“We are not there to give them three points and help them in the way they want.”
