Manchester City – West Bromwich (Premier League)

Manchester City and West Bromwich face each other this Tuesday night at the Etihad Stadium, in Manchester, in a match referent to the 34th round of the Premier League. After trashing Crystal Palace 5-0, Manchester City won once again, in the previous round, when they hosted Leicester City for 2-1, a hard-fought victory that turned out to be an importante step towards the maintenance of 4th spot. West Bromwich, on their turn, lost in the previous round when they hosted Chelsea, allowing the Blues to become the new reigning champions of the Premier League.

Manchester City are 4th placed with 72 points, result of 21 victories, 9 draws and 6 defeats, with 72 goals scored and 38 goals conceded. Despite Manchester being able of avoiding defeats, they are drawing to many games, and in the last round of the Premier League they were very lucky in the 2-1 win over Leicester City, thanks to Mahrez who missed the goal when the took a penalty kick, allowing Manchester City to keep the 2-1 until the end of the game. With Arsenal only 3 points behind, the Citizens are obliged to win this tie in order to have no pressure in the last round of the league. However, with Liverpool only 1 point ahead of them, and with only one game to play until the end of the season, this is the perfect opportunity for City to leapfrog the Reds and achieve 3rd spot, which grants direct qualification to the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola’s men have only tasted defeat at home one time this season, which was against Chelsea in December, and have won 3 of their last 5 games, drawing the other two, scoring 11 goals and conceding 3 in the process. The Citizens have one of the best defensive organization of the Premier League, as well as one of the best offensive sector. They are very strong in counterattacks, attacking down the wings, set pieces and in creating chances through individual skill, since they have very talented, and very fast, players like Leroy Sané, Aguero and Sterling, all capable of making the difference at any moment. The team can also count on Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva, two midfield magicians and experts on key-passes for their teammates. De Bruyne is the player with more assists in the Premier League, with 15 assists executed.

In their last 5 official games, Manchester City has won 2, drew 2 and lost the other 1. This sequence of results started with a 2-1 defeat against Arsenal, for the FA Cup. This result was followed by a 0-0 home draw agains Manchester United, a 2-2 draw at Middlesbrough’s ground, a 5-0 home victory over Crystal Palace, and in their last clash, a 2-1 home victory against Leicester City. Gundogan and Claudio Bravo are both out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Caballero – Zabaleta, Otamendi, Stones and Kolarov – Fernandinho – Sané, Bruyne, Silva and Sterling – Aguero.

premier-leagueWest Bromwich, on their turn, are 8th placed with the same 45 points than Southampton and Bournemouth, 9th and 10th placed, result of 12 victories, 9 draws and 15 defeats, with 41 goals scored and 45 conceded. With the reception of Chelsea, in the previous round, West Bromwich were once again unable of winning, making it the 7th consecutive game without tasting victory and even had to watch Chelsea title party at their own home ground. Already with a huge gap separating them from the european spots, and with the maintenance more than secured a few weeks ago, the Baggies have no more objectives to fulfill this season, but will try to finish as high in the league table as possible.

Away from home they have only won 3 times this season, with the last victory being in December, and arrive here with 9 goals conceded and only 4 scored in their last 5 away games, in which they have lost 2. With only one victory in their last 10 matches, with a very bad away form and with no more objectives to fulfill in the league, the Baggies will have a tough moment against a Manchester City who plays their last home game of the season.

In their last 5 official games, West Bromwich has 1 draw and 4 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 0-1 home defeat against Southampton. This result was followed by a 0-1 home defeat against Liverpool, a 0-1 home defeat against Leicester City, a 2-2 draw at Burnley’s ground, and in their last clash, a 0-1 home defeat against Chelsea.

Probable Lineup: Foster – Dawson, McAuley, Evans and Nyom – Yacob – Brunt, Livermore, Fletcher and Chadli – Rondón.

Manchester City has won all their last 8 direct clashes.
