Nine goals and six points from two home league games sees Manchester City move up to third place in the Barclays Premier League. If Arsenal or Chelsea drop points in the upcoming games, Manuel Pellegrini will want to take full advantage as he looks to bring the title back to the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City have won six of the last seven league games with West Brom, drawing the other one. Looking at this run of results the 8/13 on an away win in this game offers great value - especially if Vincent Kompany is fit enough to return to the first team. His appearance is sure to lift fans and team-mates and may add some defensive solidity on the road.
Edin Dzeko scored all three goals in City’s two league wins over West Brom last season. If he starts this game, then you can back him to score first at 11/2. If he comes off the bench, you can back him at the same 11/2 price to score last. Considering his three goals in two games against the Baggies, the Bosnian striker is worth a look to score anytime at 6/4.
Although he didn’t find the scoresheet in the 3-0 win over Swansea at the Etihad Stadium, Sergio Aguero is still the top scorer in the league and he’s the strong favourite to score first in this game at 16/5. He scored a brace against West Brom in City-s 4-0 in April 2012.
His regular strike partner Alvaro Negredo has played in every league game this season and has bagged six goals of his own, including his 25-yard free kick against Swansea. He’s another one worth looking at in the anytime scorer market at 13/10.
Looking at the respective record of the two sides, City’s eight away goals and West Brom’s eight home goals, they don’t indicate a high scoring affair. Only one of the last 17 games between these two sides in all competitions has seen more than three goals, so all roads are leading to there being under 3.5 goals at 4/9.
