Predicted Manchester City and West Brom line-ups

Here is how we predicted Manchester City and West Bromwich Albion will line up for this weekend’s match:

To be played on Saturday 21st March 2015 at 12:45. Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester

Odds: Man City 3/10, Draw 9/2, West Brom 15/2

Manchester City welcome West Bromwich Albion to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday knowing they cannot afford to drop any more points if they realistically want to retain their Premier League title.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side are currently six points behind current leaders Chelsea, and with games running out the Blues need to win most if not all their remaining fixtures.

That may be easier said than done against a West Brom side that continues to impress under manager Tony Pulis.

The Baggies are 13th in the table and will be looking to pull even further clear of the bottom three, with an eight-point gap already in place between them and Burnley.

In early team news, City have a clean bill of health and a full squad to choose from, while West Brom are not so lucky.

Goalkeeper Ben Foster is out with a knee injury and both Claudio Yacob and Chris Brunt are suspended.

Callum McManaman is a major doubt with a foot problem, Victor Anichebe has a groin injury and Brown Ideye is a minor doubt with a knock.
