Manchester City play West Brom at the Hawthorns in the Saturday’s Premier League late kick-off, as the home side look to move one step closer to securing a top-four spot.

Manchester City recorded an emphatic 4-0 win at Bournemouth last time out in the Premier League. Fernando, Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Aleksandar Kolarov all got on the scoresheet for the Citizens.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side remain fourth in the table, just a point clear of fifth-place arch-rivals Manchester United in the table and four points behind third-place Arsenal.

De Bruyne’s goal on his return from injury showed just how much he has been missed. The Belgium international has been superb in his debut campaign, scoring six goals and producing nine assists.

West Brom recorded a 0-0 draw at relegation-threatened Sunderland last time out in the top-flight. The draw means that the Baggies have been beaten just once in their last six outings.

Boss Tony Pulis will be happy to have reached the 40 points total this season, but his future at the club still unclear. The clubs style of play under Pulis has been criticised, which is understandable considering that only bottom club Aston Villa have scored less goals than the Baggies this season in the top-flight.

The Baggies are 11th in the Premier League table and a top-half finish in the Premier League this season would be considered a success this season.
