West Bromwich Albion winger Chris Brunt is eagerly anticipating 'one of the toughest matches of the season' on Saturday.
The newly-promoted Baggies tackle Premier League champions Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Tony Mowbray's men have won three of their last four league outings, but Brunt is aware that the clash against the Red Devils will serve as an acid test of their progress.
Northern Ireland international Brunt, who returns to the side after a hamstring strain, said: "It is a game we are all looking forward to as it's going to be one our toughest matches of the season.
"Everyone wants to be involved to see how far we have come since the opening game of the season against Arsenal at The Emirates.
"We have taken the positives out of the Arsenal match and the last two games have produced two good results and we also kept clean sheets.
"This shows we have the capability to keep clean sheets which is going to be vitally important to us.
"Our points return has been reasonably good which has given us a good base upon which to kick on from here."
