Stunned by rock-bottom Sunderland on Wednesday, when they required a fortunate late leveller to bag a point, Manchester City probably have to win all of their remaining games if they are to have any chance of wresting the title from Liverpool’s grasp.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side are just 2/9 with BetVictor to start their necessary five-match winning streak by getting the better of struggling West Brom (14/1, betway) at the Etihad Stadium and stung by a tough week, they should coast to victory.
The Baggies racked up a 3-0 advantage against Tottenham last time out but collapsed and only ended up with a point, an outcome that will have had a significant impact on morale in the Albion camp.
It’s hard to see them bouncing back immediately from that blow and with Pepe Mel’s charges not exactly water tight at the back of late, it’s easy to feel that City will be emphatic winners.
Arguably the most tempting flutter at Eastlands however, is 888Sport’s 31/10 for fit-again City front man Sergio Aguero to break the deadlock.
Sergio Aguero to score first – 31/10 (888Sport)
