Bet Live on Football: Manchester City vs. West BromPublished April 21, 2014 by OCR Editor
Manchester City vs. West Brom, 8pm UK time.
Manchester City hosts West Brom at the Etihad Stadium today for the Premier League's game week 35. Manchester City comes off the slip they had against Sunderland last Wednesday when the game ended a 2-2 draw, with the Citizens being saved by Samir Nasri on the 88 th minute with a late game equalizer; Manchester City was 3 minutes away from losing to the Premier League's bottom team as they aspire to win the title this season.
Now destiny will guide Manchester City's hopes for the title and over at the Etihad fingers will be crossed for Liverpool to drop as much points as possible. City could greatly benefit from a draw in Chelsea's and Liverpool's clash of giants next Sunday, while they try to beat Crystal Palace away from home. City boss Manuel Pellegrini admitted his team is "mentally tired" after Wednesday's draw, but said he still believes the team could claim the title this year.
Taking this all in consideration, Manchester City must take three points against West Brom today to remain in the top three. City is the second strongest home team in the Premier this season, conceding only 10 home goals; coupled with the statistic showing West Brom have scored only 18 away goals this season, a slip here would be tragic for the Citizens.
