Manchester City have been in rampant form this season. Pep Guardiola’s men are yet to drop points in the Premier League, sitting at the top with a 5 point lead.
The Citizens are away from home against West Brom this weekend. Manchester City will hope to come away from The Hawthorns with all three points in their bag. Here is how we expect the Blues to line-up against West Brom –
Ederson is set to retain his spot in the starting XI and will be guarding City’s goal this weekend. Otamendi was excellent for the Citizen against Burnley. The Argentine will surely start at the Hawthorns alongside John Stones as they form the heart of the defence. Walker is expected to keep his spot in the right back once again.
With Mendy out with injury, Pep Guardiola decided to experiment with Fabian Delph on the left side of the defence. The gamble has paid off and the Englishman is seemingly set to make a start again this weekend.
Manchester City have been effective with the flat three formation in the midfield. Fernandinho will be taking the responsibility of break down any counter-attack from West Brom this weekend.
De Bruyne has regained his form, providing assists and scoring crucial goals over the past weeks. The Belgian International will pair up with David Silva as they look to create opportunities for the forward line.
Sterling was on the bench at the beginning of the season. The Englishman was called upon and has proved his worth to Pep Guardiola, earning him a regular spot. He was surprisingly dropped for the game against Burnley but is set to make a return this week.
Aguero has recovered from the damages of a car accident in Amsterdam. The striker made his return last week and managed to score a goal via penalty. He is set to retain his spot in the starting lineup against West Brom.
Leroy Sane will take up his spot on the left wing and Manchester City to look bring home three points this weekend.
