Confirmed: Manchester City and West Brom line-ups

City Of Manchester Stadium

Here is how Manchester City and West Bromwich Albion will line up this afternoon:

Manchester City take on West Bromwich Albion at the Etihad Stadium in today’s lunch-time kick-off, and Manuel Pellegrini’s side cannot afford to drop anymore points if they want to retain their Premier League title.

League leaders Chelsea are already six points clear of City but Jose Mourinho’s men could still slip up with some big fixtures to play, but today’s hosts should not underestimate West Brom.

The Baggies have been resurgent under Tony Pulis and will head to the Etihad with plenty of confidence.

West Brom are 13th in the league and can climb up to 11th with a victory this afternoon.
That said, City have not lost to West Brom in their last 10 league meetings and will take an almighty effort from Pulis’s men to change that today.

But with City losing four of their last five matches in all competitions – including two games against Barcelona – it could be a great chance for a shock.
