In-form star ready for United visit

West Bromwich Albion

Baggies star Chris Brunt is ready to show Premier League leaders Manchester United his best form on New Year's Day.

The former Sheffied Wednesday ace is available again after missing the defeat to Blackburn through suspension and he believes he is in the best form since stepping up to the Premier League.

“At this level this is probably my best form – and this is the highest level I’ve played at,” he said.

“I’ve been really enjoying it and I’m happy with my contribution so far. I’d like to maybe have a couple more goals to my name but I know from previous seasons goals will come.

“I don’t want to jinx myself but I have been really enjoying my football over the last few months and I think it has shown in the way the team’s played and the contributions I’ve made.”

Brunt’s return is tempered by news that Albion boss Roberto Di Matteo is without the banned Gabriel Tamas and Gonzalo Jara for the clash at The Hawthorns.
