Premier League Betting: Manchester City vs. West Brom

Manchester City must beat West Brom to stay relevant at the Premier League top (12:45 UK time).

Manchester's Etihad Stadium is the venue for today's tense meeting between Manchester City and West Brom (12:45 UK time).

Deciding Game for City

Manchester City is coming to this game a beaten team. Last year's Premier League champions lost their Champions League season in Wednesday after they were kicked out of the round of 16 by Barcelona.

The Citizens also slipped in their mission to defend the Premier League title this season, having a few draws, losing to Liverpool earlier this month and then suffering a 1-0 loss against Burnley from the relegation zone one week ago. City is 6 points away from leaders Chelsea, and they have Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool breathing down their necks and hungry for blood. Today's game will be deciding for City, and they are the favorites to emerge victorious although the pressure will weigh down on them.

West Brom

Currently positioned 13 in the table, West Brom is not under any specific pressure like its host today and that's a strongpoint. West Brom's performance has been quite average, going down and up – they have 33 points composed of 8 wins, 9 draws and 12 losses, with a goal difference of -9 (27 for, 36 against). West Brom will be missing three key players today, Claudio Yacob, Ben Foster and Chris Brunt. They don't have a good away record and it's hard to see them winning this, but if there will be any goals on their behalf look for Saido Berahino in goalscorer bets.
