Man City vs West Brom prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out?


Manchester City host West Brom in the Premier League on Tuesday evening as Pep Guardiola’s side seek to regain momentum in their attempt to climb the table.

City played out a 0-0 draw with rivals United in last weekend’s Manchester derby, leaving Tuesday’s hosts ninth in the table on 19 points.

A win here would see them rise to sixth – if briefly – while West Brom have humbler aspirations.

Slaven Bilic’s team, 19th in the standings on six points after their defeat by Newcastle, will struggle to escape the relegation zone even with a victory against City. But they’ll be eyeing a huge upset anyway, given 18th Fulham were able to secure a 1-1 draw versus champions Liverpool at the weekend.

What is the team news?

Eric Garcia’s muscle issue is set to keep him out a while longer, while Sergio Aguero is a doubt for City after his return last week gave way to an illness-related absence from the Manchester derby.

For West Brom, the injured Conor Townsend and Hal Robson-Kanu will miss out, and Sam Field is unlikely to feature due to his recent injury and positive coronavirus test result. Elsewhere, forward Matheus Pereira is suspended.

Predicted line-ups

Man City: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo; Rodri, Gundogan; Sterling, De Bruyne, Torres; Gabriel Jesus

West Brom: Johnstone; Ajayi, Ivanovic, O’Shea; Furlong, Gallagher, Sawyers, Krovinovic, Diangana; Robinson, Grant

Odds

Man City: 1/11

Draw: 10/1

West Brom: 20/1

Prediction

Fulham’s spirited showing to gain a point against champions Liverpool will no doubt give West Brom belief that they can get a result here, but it will be a tough task indeed. The safe bet is a comfortable City win. Man City 3-0 West Brom.
