Team news

West Brom
West Brom were dealt a blow this week with the news of Craig Dawson's injury.

The versatile defender will be out for around two months with the thigh and knee injuries he suffered in the defeat to Southampton. Allan Nyom is likely to be recalled in Dawson's absence against the Premier League leaders.

Jonny Evans, a transfer target for City this summer, and Gareth Barry, a former City player, are both expected to be available despite being forced off at St Mary's with injuries, while Hal Robson-Kanu is back in training after his muscle problem.




Man.City
Pep Guardiola will likely change most of his starting XI as they bid for an eighth successive League win at West Brom.

City made nine changes against Wolves in midweek, with only Sergio Aguero and Bernardo Silva retaining their places, so the likes of goalkeeper Ederson, centre-back Nicolas Otamendi and David Silva should be among those coming in.

Guardiola expects Vincent Kompany (calf) to be back in training within the next week or so, while left-back Benjamin Mendy (knee) is a long-term absentee.

Predicted line-ups

West Brom starting XI: Foster; Dawson, Evans, Hegazi, Gibbs; Rodriguez, Krychowiak, Livermore, Garry, Chadli; Rondon



Man City starting XI: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Silva; Sterling, Aguero, Sane
