Premier League – Manchester City vs West Brom Prediction and Betting Tips. In the Round 34 in Premier League, Manchester City host West Brom at Etihad. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Manchester City vs West Brom.
Manchester City stand at the 4th position in Premier League and their primary goal is to finish the season in the Top 3 and qualify in the Champions League directly. They have one point less than 3rd Liverpool, but Manchester City have one match less, so in the case of their victory they will move up at the 3rd position. Home side have already confirmed their participation at the the fifth International Champions Cup in North America, where they will face Tottenham and Real Madrid, so if they failed to reach the 3rd position, it means that they will have to play qualification for Champions League and cancel North America tour, which means that they will lose a lot of money. The match against West Brom is very important for them and they will do their best in order to take another three points and reach the Top 3. In the previous round Manchester City beat Leicester City 2-1, so they will be fully motivated to make another good performance upfront their supporters and beat West Brom. Good news for their manager Pep Guardiola is that his top scorer Sergio Aguero has recovered from an injury and should start in the attack.
West Brom stand at the 8th position in Premier League and they don’t have a chance to reach the place which leads in Europa League next season, while on the other side they avoid relegation, so they will not have special motivation against Manchester City. Visitors are in a very poor form with only one victory in their last 10 league games, so it’s hard to believe that they can avoid defeat at Etihad. In the previous round West Brom was a on a good way to stay unbeaten against Chelsea, but Blues beat them 0-1 and became the new champions of Premier League. WBA conceded at least one goal in their last 6 games, while on the other side their attack is terrible. In the last 7 games, West Brom had managed to score only on one match, so it will be hard for them to hit the net against Man City. In the first part of the season they lost at home against team from Manchester 0-4, so their primary goal will be the conceded less goals than in the first game against same rivals.
Home side miss Gundogan and their first goalkeeper Bravo, while visitors miss long-term injured Philips. McAuley, Robson-Kanu and Sam Field are all doubtful.

Manchester City vs West Brom Prediction
Home side need points and they will attack from the beginning and try to hit net as quickly as possible. Visitors are without motivation and their recent performance is very poor, so it will be very hard for them to avoid defeat. I expect interesting match between Manchester City vs West Brom and expect easy home win.
