Reasons for West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester City Tip
The Citizens are without a doubt the best team in England at the moment. Pep Guardiola’s squad travels to the famous Hawthorns, to face West Bromwich Albion, one of their favorite customers. In the last 15 games, Sky-Blues from Manchester haven’t lost, and that is one of the longest spans in the Premiership.
Is this a perfect chance for the Baggies to snap that negative run? Or are we seeing another win by the hosts? More about it, in our preview of this event.
West Bromwich Albion Preview
After a solid start, the Baggies slowed down a little bit. In the past 8 matches in a row WBA didn’t win, 4 draws and losses apiece. But still, they haven’t got a loss at home in the Premier League, recording one win and three draws, which is making Hawthorns pretty unpleasant place to be. In those 8 events, 5 terminated under 2.5 goals, and that is one of the characteristics of this assembly. The attacking part of the team is underachieving in the recent matches, and they haven’t scored in two games since the international break. Johnny Evans will not play, and the situation surrounding Dawson, Morrison, and Robson-Kanu is not clear yet.
Manchester City Preview
Guardiola is showing off with his team’s recent performances, and he has every right to do it. Citizens have 8 triumphs and one draw, for a total goal-difference of 32:4. Away from home, they are even more terrifying, all 4 wins and 11:1. 12 victories in a row in all competitions are something worth mentioning, and at this stage of the season, City is the biggest title contender. Sergio Aguero is back after his injury, and he already started producing goals, last week against Burnley. Two defenders are going to be ineligible for this encounter. Vincent Kompany and Benjamin Mendy, but certainly this isn’t going to affect on City’s game.
West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester City Head to Head
As we already mention, the Citizens haven’ got a loss against WBA in the last 15 matches. Last 12 games were perfect for the Sky-Blues from Manchester, as they won all of them.

West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester City Prediction and Betting Tips
Both of our bets are going to rely on a high number of goals. The first one is over 3.5, since the Citizens haven’t been in that situation in the last three matches. For them, this is a huge failure, and Aguero, Sane, Jesus are ready to demolish someone.
The second one is to score over 1.5 goals in the first halftime. Two of the latest 3 contests of City ended in such a manner. Plus, the attacking line is magnificent lately.
