West Brom vs Man City: Premier League preview

Another win would be their seventh on the trot in the top flight, but their away record has been spotty throughout the season.

Pep Guardiola has described Sam Allardyce as a “genius” in the lead up to the game – can ‘Big Sam’ claim another famous scalp on Tuesday?

West Brom vs Manchester City is scheduled for an 8.15pm GMT kick-off on Tuesday, January 26, 2021.

The match will be held behind closed doors at the Hawthorns.

TV channel: The match will be televised on BT Sport.

Live stream: BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the website or BT Sport app.

West Brom are boosted by the return of both Karlan Grant and Matty Phillips.

Striker Grant is yet to feature in 2021 after suffering a foot injury in late December. Phillips has missed the last three games after testing positive for Covid-19, with the winger’s his last appearance coming in the home defeat to Arsenal on January 2.

Robert Snodgrass is back in contention after sitting out the trip to West Ham. The two clubs had an agreement that the midfielder would not play in the game following his recent transfer from the Hammers.

Conor Townsend (knee) is back in training but not yet ready to return, while Grady Diangana (hamstring) is still out.

Manchester City are without Kevin De Bruyne (hamstring) and Sergio Aguero (coronavirus).

Right-back Kyle Walker is hoping to return after missing the FA Cup tie at Cheltenham after a blow to the hip. Centre-back Nathan Ake remains on the sidelines.

Prediction: West Brom 0-3 Man City

West Brom are a more solid outfit since Sam Allardyce’s arrival but Manchester City haven’t looked this threatening in about 18 months. Even without Kevin De Bruyne, this should be straightforward for Pep Guardiola.
