What Trueform says for Man City vs West Brom
Manchester City regularly scale heights West Brom will struggle to match, but our Trueform chart does highlight how well the Baggies have been battling in the Premier League of late.
Add on Saturday’s superb 3-2 FA Cup triumph at Liverpool and Albion must command some respect going into this fixture.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
Manchester City haven’t let losing their unbeaten Premier League status at Liverpool affect them, subsequently beating Newcastle 3-1 and then progressing in two knockout competitions.
However, Pep Guardiola’s insistence on continuing to play full-strength teams against all opposition did take its toll when Leroy Sane was injured in a physical FA Cup encounter with Cardiff on Sunday.
Sane had scored three goals in two games against West Brom this season, so would have been an obvious candidate for the goalscorer markets.
Sergio Aguero can come back in after replacing Sane for the second half in Wales, but Albion tend to be strong at defending balls into the box, so we’re looking for better value elsewhere.
David Silva has netted in three of his last six games versus the Baggies, so prices of 13/2 he opens the scoring and 19/10 the Spaniard strikes at any time catch the eye from the Man City vs West Brom odds.
A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
West Brom’s agonising run of 21 matches without a win has been well and truly consigned to the history books following three victories in four games.
Beating Exeter in the cup and Brighton in the league helped lift morale, but Saturday’s triumph at Anfield has really got people talking about Alan Pardew’s side.
“Hopefully it gives us confidence to be fearless, which I think we were,” said Pardew. “We have been very good, very positive without getting the three or four goals.”
Albion have also drawn away at Arsenal in a seven-match stretch featuring just one defeat.
Pardew hailed Salomon Rondon for “playing the best football of his career”, but strike partner Jay Rodriguez has rightly hogged the headlines for netting five goals in his last six matches.
Rodriguez has been tipped as a possible wildcard for England’s World Cup squad and he said: “You’ve got to aspire to the highest level you can and for me that is an amazing dream.”
The 28-year-old also scored in a 3-2 loss to the Blues at the Hawthorns towards the end of October, so 9/2 he nets again here is fair value for our Man City vs West Brom betting tips.
