West Brom v Manchester City tips – will Baggies upset Citizens?

It appears that Kevin de Bruyne will be the final summer signing at the Etihad Stadium, with Manuel Pellegrini hoping that his squad improve on last season to reclaim their Premier League title.

Fabian Delph and Raheem Sterling have already been acquired this summer, with the latter becoming the club’s record signing and it’s no surprise to see Manchester City at odds-on for Monday night’s clash.

Should City be as short as 4/6 for this game? Pellegrini’s team won ten of their nineteen matches on the road last term, with Sergio Aguero likely to be on the bench for a match against a Baggies side who snapped up James Chester and Rickie Lambert this summer.

The fact that City have conceded so many goals during pre-season means they are not a backable prospect for this opener, with Real Madrid beating them 4-1 and then Stuttgart winning 4-2.

"I think what happened against Madrid and Stuttgart rang one or two alarm bells and maybe showed we have to change something," Eliaquim Mangala told City's official website.

"We can't play the way we did in those two games against West Brom or we'll get punished”.

West Brom are 5/1 with Ladbrokes to pull off a shock win and they will regard it a good time to be facing a Manchester City side, especially with news that Aguero, Samir Nasri and David Silva have been struck down by a sickness bug.

The draw is generally available at 3/1, with the Baggies likely to offer a robust defence at The Hawthorns.
