An unfaltering Manchester City side will be keen to grab the top spot on the Premier League table when they continue their rampant run against West Bromich Albion at The Hawthorns tonight (Tuesday).
Having grabbed three crucial points against Aston Villa (2-0) in the Premier League and outclassed Cheltenham Town by 3-1 in the FA Cup Fourth-round, Pep Guardiola’s men will be hoping to carry forward their momentum with another victory.
Sam Allardyce and his men, meanwhile, have been going through a grudging period.
the Baggies, who are 19th in the table, six points off safety, have won just one of their last nine games in the league – a 2-3 win over Wolves.
But soon after that illuminative outcome, West Brom yet again lost the path as West Ham United beat them by 2-1 last time out.
In the reverse fixture, played at the Etihad back in December last year, West Brom’s defense stood tall against The Cityzens; with a 1-1 draw courtesy of a Ruben Dias own goal in the dying minutes of the first half.
West Brom XI (4-4-1-1): Johnstone, Furlong, Ajayi, O’Shea, Gibbs, Snodgrass, Livermore, Sawyers, Ahearne-Grant, Pereira, Robinson
Man City XI (4-3-3): Moraes, Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko, Gündoğan, Hernández, Silva, Sterling, Mahrez, Foden
Kick off is at 21:15 (GMT +1).
