Hello, and welcome to Sports Mole’s live coverage of the match in the Premier League between Manchester City and West Bromwich Albion.
With two games still remaining, City know that they will qualify for next season’s Champions League if they can register four points from fixtures against West Brom and Watford.
As for the Baggies, head coach Tony Pulis is eager to end a winless streak which has led to the club being in danger of slipping into the bottom half of the table, despite occupying eighth place for a number of months.
They will drop down to ninth should they suffer a defeat by two or more goals at the Etihad Stadium.
Heading into their final two league fixtures of the season, Man City would have been hoping to still be in contention for the Premier League title but although they have never really been able to challenge Chelsea, their remaining 180 minutes of action is still hugely significant to the club. They require four points to guarantee Champions League football for next season and with Liverpool and Arsenal only possessing home fixtures until the end of the campaign, they cannot afford to slip up against West Brom.
David Moyes makes two enforced changes tonight; Jason Denayer and striker Victor Anichebe limped off in the first half of the lousy defeat to Swansea City on Saturday and are ruled out tonight with Lee Cattermole & Bryan Oviedo coming in for the pair.
The final home match of the season for Manchester City could be a title celebration, but the team hasn’t won a trophy in Pep Guardiola’s first year and the biggest glory possible is a place in the Champions League.
This hasn’t been the season we were expecting, but this has been a huge learning curve for Guardiola and he’ll probably overhaul his squad with key signings in multiple positions.
If he wants that overhaul, though, Pep needs his team to finish in a Champions League place, and a win against West Bromwich Albion today will go a long way in achieving that goal.
Gabriel Jesus has been in red hot form since his debut, scoring 5 goals with just 7 shots on target in the Premier League, and the young Brazilian superstar will be looking to make an impact in a key match once again.
This is a game City must win, and this is a game you must watch. Please, do not miss it.
