Pep Guardiola's men are in free-scoring form and our tipster thinks that the men from Manchester will win another goal-laden game on Wednesday night

West Bromwich Albion will be acutely aware of the astonishing attacking threat posed by Manchester City ahead of Wednesday's League Cup tie at the Hawthorns.

Pep Guardiola's charges have been in fantastic form in the final third, scoring a phenomenal 15 goals in their last three matches and, after smashing six past Watford at Vicarage Road, the men from Manchester will fancy their chances of getting amongst the goals again here.

City are 2/7 (1.29) favourites with dabblebet to move into the fourth round of the League Cup inside 90 minutes, while the same firm go 9/2 (5.50) that the match remains deadlocked at the end of normal time.

West Brom have had a steady start to the season, with the Baggies beaten in just one of their six competitive matches this term and conceding more than once in just one of those games; Tony Pulis' side can be backed at 10/1 (11.0) with dabblebet to send City crashing out of the Cup at the Hawthorns by claiming a famous victory here.

West Brom, who played out a goalless draw with West Ham United at the weekend, will hope that their impressive defensive discipline stands them in good stead against Guardiola's men and dabblebet offer 17/2 (9.50) that the free-scoring visitors draw a blank against the Baggies, while the same firm offer a chunky 16/1 (17.0) that Pulis' men win without conceding.

Much has been made of the quality in attack that Guardiola has at his disposal, but it is worth noting that City have kept three consecutive clean sheets since the international break; dabblebet go 5/6 (1.83) that the Citizens make it four in a row here, while the same firm go 19/20 (1.95) that City again come out on top without concededing.

Manchester City boast a magnificent record in this fixture, winning 13 of the last 14 matches between these two teams, with the other match during that run ending in a draw - although West Brom were winners when these two teams last locked horns in the League Cup and there is every chance of an entertaining tussle between the teams at the Hawthorns on this occasion,

Notably, each of the last eight matches between these two teams has produced at least three goals; even with both teams likely to ring the changes, dabblebet go just 8/15 (1.53) that the trend continues in this tussle.

Better value, though, could lie in backing Guardiola's men to win a match in which at least three goals are scored; the selection would have seen punters profit from all but one of City's last 12 wins against the Baggies and, as such, dabblebet's 3/4 (1.75) quote could prove to be a solid selection for punters.
