Manchester City vs West Brom – recent form and head to head statistics
Manchester City vs West Brom: Recommended bets
Kevin De Bruyne to score first. Pep Guardiola’s side looked toothless in the Manchester derby with their forwards failing to deliver.
De Bruyne once again looked City’s only genuine bright spark and they will be hoping he can produce his magic on Tuesday.
The Belgian has only netted twice in the Premier League this season, so he will be desperate to add to his tally against West Brom.
Manchester City vs West Brom: Match preview
Manchester City’s struggles continued on Saturday as they were held to a goalless draw with Manchester United.
Both sides’ approach to the game was criticised with the two teams seemingly playing not to lose in a drab affair.
In attack, Pep Guardiola’s side looked uninspired and clearly missing a real goal threat in the absence of Sergio Aguero.
Gabriel Jesus has struggled to fill the void left by the Argentine. The Brazilian has scored just twice in the league this season.
Man City have netted 17 times this season, fewer than any other side in the league’s top half.
West Brom’s defensive difficulties
West Brom conceded a late goal to Newcastle United on Saturday as they slipped to an 8th defeat of the season.
The Baggies look set for a real battle to remain in the division taking just six points from 12 matches.
Right now, their biggest issue appears to be in defence, where they have conceded 25 goals, more than any other team.
Scoring goals has also been an issue, netting just nine times, the third-lowest in the league.
Their next five matches also look very tricky with games against City, Liverpool and Arsenal.
Manchester City team news vs West Brom
Sergio Aguero’s return from injury was further delayed by a bout of gastroenteritis.
The striker could return on Tuesday, but would only likely be able to make the bench.
Eric Garcia remains sidelined until the New Year due to injury. John Stones could make his fourth start in a row for the Sky Blues.
West Brom team news vs Manchester City
West Brom will now have to deal with the absence of Matheus Pereira for another two matches.
The midfielder was sent off against Crystal Palace.
Hal Robson-Kanu, Sam Field and Conor Townsend all remain out through injury.
