City are second in the table but defeats to Burnley and Liverpool in recent weeks have all but diminished aspirations of retaining their title and instead have been dragged into the ‘rat race’ for a top-four finish.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side face West Brom in the Premier League’s early kick-off on Saturday and have a strong record in recent Man City v West Brom matches. City have won the last six meetings between the sides and have not lost in the last 10.
Furthermore, West Brom have not won any of their last nine away matches and have been poor on the road this season.
However, Tony Pulis has steadied the ship since taking over from Alan Irvine and has a 44% win rate in the league from his nine games in charge. The Baggies’ four clean sheets in their last five games are a sign that Pulis has got his defensive mentality across to his players and West Brom are now a tougher side to break down.
The loss of goalkeeper Ben Foster with a knee injury is a big blow for West Brom but their defensive record in recent weeks implies City will struggle to create chances as freely as they would like.
City to win and under 2.5 goals is therefore our first betting tip on the weekend football and is best priced at 14/5 with Betway.
Sergio Aguero has scored four goals in his last five games against the Baggies and is our second Man City v West Brom prediction to open the scoring at the Etihad on Saturday at 10/3 with Coral.
Joe Hart was outstanding in goal for City on Wednesday against Barcelona and was the reason his side only conceded once. We’re predicting another assured performance from England’s number one and are backing City to win to nil at 23/20 with Bet Victor.
Spring is in the air this weekend, with conditions in stark contrast to the reverse fixture on Boxing Day in which City won 3-1 in snowy conditions at the Hawthorns. City cannot afford to slip up again as the pressure mounts on Manuel Pellegrini.
