TEAM NEWS

City make nine changes from the side that beat Cheltenham Town on Saturday.

Only Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez remain from the side that started at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, as Pep Guardiola shuffles his pack for the trip to West Brom.

City: Ederson, Cancelo, Zinchenko, Dias, Stones, Gundogan, Rodrigo, Foden, Bernardo, Sterling (c), Mahrez

Substitutes: Steffen, Walker, Jesus, Laporte, Torres, Mendy, Fernandinho, Garcia, Bernabe

West Brom: Johnstone, Furlong, Gibbs, Ajayi, O'Shea, Robinson, Livermore, Pereira, Sawyers, Snodgrass, Grant

Formation: 4-3-3

Ruben Dias and John Stones resume their central defensive partnership with Oleks Zinchenko and Joao Cancelo the preferred full-backs.

Rodrigo will anchor a midfield that includes Foden and Ilkay Gundogan, while Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo are the likely front three.

Team news

Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero will both miss the game.

The Belgian midfielder is out for up to six weeks with injury, whilst City’s record goalscorer continues to self-isolate following a positive COVID-19 test.

Kyle Walker and Nathan Ake are also doubts.

The right-back missed the win over Cheltenham Town after picking up an injury against Aston Villa, but Pep Guardiola was hopeful it would not keep him out long term, whilst it remains to be seen where Ake is up to in his recovery.

Pep Guardiola preview

“I know how good Sam Allardyce teams are on set-pieces.

"They will have worked this week on that to see how they can hurt us, but we have to discover the weak points they may have and impose our game.

“Today our training session was very good. I am optimistic to take a bus tomorrow to West Bromwich and do a good game.”

Form guide

City come into the game having won 10 games in a row as part of a 17-match unbeaten run in all competitions.

We have avoided defeat against West Brom in our last 18 meetings, 16 of which we have won.

The 19th placed Baggies have won just twice in the league this season, but have claimed victory in two of their previous four games in all competitions. Their last outing ended in a 2-1 defeat away at West Ham United.

Last meeting

Our previous meeting was only six weeks ago, when we were held to a 1-1 draw by the Baggies, who were then managed by Slaven Bilic.

City took the lead when Ilkay Gundogan converted Raheem Sterling’s cut-back, but West Brom hit back before half-time via Semi Ajayi, whose volley on the turn deflected off Ruben Dias to wrong foot Ederson.

Sam Johnstone made two point-blank saves to deny Gundogan and Sterling in the dying minutes as Guardiola's side were forced to settle for a frustrating point.
