Manchester City play host to West Bromwich Albion at the Etihad Stadium for their English Premier League duel on Wednesday night.

Since their unbeaten run was halted by Liverpool, Pep Guardiola’s men have won their last three games in all competitions.

They continue to maintain their grip on the log with a 12-point lead over their closest rivals Manchester United.

They have won their last 13 outings with their visitors and will be looking to continue their dominace here. Bet9ja has quoted (1.15) for a comfortable win for them on their own turf.

The last time both sides played a stalemate was in 2011 and the same betting firm is offering (8.70) for the game to end that way.

West Brom have just recruited Daniel Sturridge from Liverpool and Ali Gabr from Zamalek in their quest to avoid relegation at the end of the season. The duo might be thrown into the thick of the action as they will be aiming to leave the blue half of Manchester with something positive.

However, for them to achieve this, they will have to keep City’s rampaging attack at bay as they have been tagged as massive underdogs at the odds of (15.00).

The Citizens have bagged 70 league goals this season, the highest from any team in the elite division. They will be expected to continue the scoring spree as bookies have put up (1.45) for over 2.5 goals to surface in the duel and (2.30) is available for both sides to find the net.

Manchester City have won their last 17 home games and punters can back them to win either half of the tie at the odds of (1.06) with Bet9ja.
