West Bromwich vs. Manchester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester City will be looking to climb back to the top of the league table when they travel to the Hawthorns. The side will take on West Brom on Tuesday evening with kickoff at 11:15 pm.

Pep Guardiola’s men overcame a shock to overcome Cheltenham Town in their 3-1 win in the FA Cup. The Baggies had a weekend to recover from their 2-1 defeat to West Ham United.

Sam Allardyce was left on cloud nine after claiming their bragging rights at the Black Country after overcoming Wolves. However, the relegation-threatened side received a reality check by West Ham last week.

Only Sheffield United have lost more games than the Baggies this season. The Blades are the only team West Brom managed to pull off a win on home turf this season. Allardyce might reckon the relegation.

Since the start of December, West Brom has lost their games against Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Leeds United, and Arsenal. The side managed to concede 17 goals while managing to score only one in their dreadful run.

The Baggies have a dreadful home goal difference of -19, which is by far the worst in the division. The side needs to improve their defensive record or risk a battering at the City outfit’s hands. The City outfit is currently on an impressive run of ten wins across all competitions.
