West Brom vs Manchester City
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 26 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns.
The Citizens are the best team in the competition at the moment. They have a game in hand, and are placed second in the table – trailing by just two points behind toppers and arch-rivals, the Red Devils.
Pep Guardiola’s men are on blazing form at the moment, securing win after win, and scoring goal after goal. They also seem determined to deliver the title at any cost this season, after Liverpool had denied them a third straight crown the last time around.
As an added blessing, Jurgen Klopp’s men are on a long winless run at the moment, and due to their serious injury problems, they no longer seem to be the juggernauts they were during the 2019-20 campaign.
On the other hand, the Baggies are one of the worst teams in the contest, and are placed 19th in the table. They are also a newly-promoted squad, and have won just twice this whole season.
Moreover, the Citizens also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.
By all means, expect Manchester City to deliver a commendable win this Tuesday.
