Manchester City come into this match with a great chance of Qualifying for the Champions league while West Brom will be looking to damage their hopes.

Pep Guardiola’s team are currently 4th in the league table with 72 points from 36 league games.

They currently trail 3rd placed Liverpool by just one point and have played a game less than the Reds.

This game offers them an opportunity to get back inside the top four.

City are unbeaten in their last 6 league matches and have won their last 2 games by at least 2 goals.

West Brom have not had the best second half of the season but thanks to their first half form, they are still a respectable 8th in the league table.

They have 45 points from 36 league matches – the same number of points as 9th placed Southampton and 10th placed Bournemouth.

Their recent league form isn’t great – they have lost 5 of their last 6 league games including 4 consecutive home losses but they interestingly do not concede that many goals.

Bookmakers make Manchester City extremely short favourites – they are 1.16  to win this game while West Brom are 21.0 to win at the Etihad.
