Long-term absentee Jose Izquierdo remains out whilst he recovers from knee surgery, but that aside, Albion have a fully fit squad to choose from.

Pep’s view

“We are still second in the Premier League, scoring a lot of goals. I don’t know how many times we have scored five goals - a lot!

“That’s the way we want to play, for our people, respecting the game of football. That’s it."

Last meeting

City cruised to a 4-0 win at the Etihad Stadium back in August.

Kevin De Bruyne got us off to a fine start, scoring the opening goal after just 68 seconds, before Sergio Aguero added a brace.

Bernardo Silva completed the scoring late on, but the celebrations were dampened somewhat by the knee injury suffered by Aymeric Laporte, which kept him out for four months.

Premier League rule changes

Whilst football is back, it is different from what we are used to.

The absence of fans is the most significant change, but a host of other measures have been implemented to protect players and staff, all of which will affect the matchday experience.
