    West Brom v Man City Preview: Pellegrini looking to cure travel sickness against Baggies

    Vincent Kompany

    Written by @GrantMilesFF

    West Bromwich Albion will really be looking to use this fixture, at the Hawthorns, against Manchester City as a chance to revive their fortunes, having only won once in their last seven Premier League matches.

    Manchester City will similarly see this game as an opportunity to grab all three points as they look to remedy their poor form on the road.

    Steve Clarke’s charges will go into this fixture with confidence having already taken a point at the Hawthorns against current Premier League leaders Arsenal this season.

    Man City have an immaculate record at the Etihad stadium having beaten every single opponent they have faced there this campaign in the Premier League.

    West Brom will be without Youssouf Mulumbu who is suspended for the game having collected five yellow cards. Scott Sinclair would have be ineligible for the game against his parent club, yet he carries a hamstring injury anyway, and Ben Foster continue to join him on the sidelines.

    Man City could be heavily boosted by the return of Vincent Kompany in defence as the Belgian international looks set to his first start after ten games out with a thigh injury. Pellegrini still won’t be able to call upon Matija Nastasic, playmaker David Silva and attacker Stevan Jovetic who remain in the treatment room.

    There have been four red cards in the last five encounters between these two sides so this could be a feisty fixture once more.

    City have already lost the same amount of games on their travels as they did in the whole 2012/13 campaign and West Brom will definitely be looking to add to these woes.

    West Brom v Man City Pre-Match Stats

    West Brom have won none and lost six of the last seven Barclays Premier League matches against Manchester City.

    Edin Dzeko scored all three of Man City’s Premier League goals against West Brom last season.

    The Baggies have mustered just one goal in their last six Premier League games against Manchester City.

    There have been four red cards in the last five meetings between Man City and West Brom at the Hawthorns, three of which have been given to the Citizens.

    Compared to at home; where they have won all 21 possible points, Manchester City have picked up just four points from six Premier League away games this season (W1 D1 L4).

    The Citizens have already lost the same number of Premier League away games this season (4) as they did in the whole of 2012-13 (4).

    West Brom have won just two of their last 10 Premier League games at the Hawthorns (W2 D4 L4), but are unbeaten in the last four (W2 D2).

    West Brom have won just one of their last seven Premier League matches (W1 D4 L2).

    Manchester City are looking to win three successive Premier League games for the first time since mid-April.

    Alvaro Negredo has scored eight goals in his last seven appearances for the Citizens (all comps).
