Premiership – West Brom v Manchester City Betting Preview

West Bromwich Albion finished in a rather respectable 13th place last season and ended the campaign a solid 9 points above the relegation zone which gives them a solid platform to work with for the 2015-2016 season and I think they can break into the top half of the table if they can hold onto their prized asset Saido Berahino who is wanted by a few clubs that can offer him European football and help his career really take off and fulfill his potential.

Manchester City finished last season’s campaign as runners up and were disappointed not to retain their title but have failed to noticeably strengthen in the summer transfer window which is still open for a number of weeks. Two promising young English talents joined the squad by the names of Fabian Delph and Raheem Sterling but neither of those players are going to turn city back into a championship winning side. I expect the home team to prevail victorious in this affair.

West Bromwich Albion Team News

Ben Foster is the only player absent for the visitors and will not return until at least October from his ACL knee injury which needs plenty of time to heal due to the nature of the injury.

Manchester City Team News

Recent signing Fabian Delph will miss the start of the season due to a hamstring injury whilst Gael Clichy is being closely monitored as he carries a foot injury. Silva, Aguero and Nasri should be recovered from their illness and Yaya Toure is expected to start despite a recent head injury.

West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester City Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the 121 games these two teams have played against each other over the years, there was a total of  402 goals, which gives us an average goals per game statistic of 3.32.

Both teams are going to be a bit slow out the blocks as it is the first game of the season but I fully expect to see over 2.5 goals in this match.

West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester City Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

It is very good to see the new season arrive so quickly after it ended in May. The first Monday Night  game will come from the Hawthornes Stadium live on Sky Sports 1HD and will feature two clubs with opposing agendas this season, City will be fighting for the title whereas West Brom will be fighting for a mid-table finish.

With Chelsea and Arsenal failing to win in the opening weekend of fixtures and Manchester United winning by a singular goal against Spurs it means that Manuel Pellegrini’s side have the chance to go top of the table if they can net a few goals which we all know they’re more than capable of.

Time for my predictions now and it has not been difficult to choose a winner here, so I have opted to go for a score/win double of Aguero and City.

My saver is going to be Aguero to find the net at least twice within the 90 minutes.
