West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster hopes for a change of luck at Manchester United today.

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster hopes for a change of luck at Manchester United today.

England star Foster spent five years at Old Trafford as understudy to Edwin van der Sar before leaving for first-team action with Birmingham in 2010.

He said: “I’ve lost every time I’ve been back there.

“I got pumped 5-0 with Birmingham, then we lost 2-0 there last year.

“For every player it’s special to play at Old Trafford, but with the way our team is I don’t think anybody gets too excited about games like that.

“There are a lot of teams who go there like rabbits stuck in the headlights.

“They get star-struck by it all — but our manager Steve Clarke won’t let any of us get like that.”
