Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After surviving Cheltenham in the FA Cup last 32, Manchester City will be looking to overtake Manchester United in top position in the Premier League table when they take on WBA on Tuesday evening. The Citizens were struggling to find their best form at the start of the season, but they have been producing fine displays in 2021. Pep Guardiola’s troops are eyeing their seventh consecutive win in the national championship, and the Catalan tactician is likely to field the best possible side this time out after resting key players in the FA Cup clash.
Kun Aguero remains quarantined, while Kevin de Bruyne is sidelined with injury. The Baggies did well to beat Wolverhampton on the road in their penultimate league fixture, but they failed to spoil West Ham’s party in London. Given WBA’s shaky defence, we are tempted to put our money on the title-chasing visitors. Karlan Grant remains on the sidelines with injury, while Conor Townsend is a major doubt.
