Following their defeat at Liverpool, Manchester City have registered three consecutive wins in all competitions.
On Wednesday, they will resume their Premier League campaign against West Bromwich Albion at Etihad Stadium.
The league-leaders got back to winning ways with a 3-1 home win over Newcastle United in the league last week. Following that result, they have also registered easy wins over Bristol City and Cardiff City in League and FA Cup respectively.
As things stand, City find themselves eleven points clear at the top of the league table, and undefeated at home this season.
The Citizens haven’t dropped points at Etihad Stadium since the 1-1 draw with Everton in August, and we expect them to continue their winning run on Wednesday.
The Baggies have looked a much better side in the recent weeks. They have picked up four points from their last two games, but they still find themselves in the 19th spot with 20 points – three behind the safety.
On the weekend, the Baggies registered arguably their best result of the season as they defeated Liverpool 3-2 at Anfield in the fourth round of FA Cup. The win over the Reds must have boosted the confidence of Alan Pardew’s side, but we don’t see them getting anything against the Citizens.
Earlier this season, the Citizens grabbed a 3-2 win over the Baggies at the Hawthorns. City have also defeated their opponents 1-2 in a League Cup game this season.
