Bet on West Brom vs Man City – Mancini feeling the pressure

| 07.11.2010

The nine men of West Bromwich Albion may have lost to Blackpool last Monday, but Roberto Di Matteo’s side continue to sit sixth in the Premier League.

Manchester City are in somewhat of a slump after losing their last three matches, and Roberto Mancini is coming under plenty of pressure after reports of unrest in the Manchester City camp.

Match Odds

Carlos Tevez is the heartbeat of the Manchester City side and despite the millions that the club has spent they have missed his presence in the last two games.

Mancini is hopeful Tevez will return for Sunday’s clash and if he is to feature, the 11/10 available for Man City to beat West Brom would look a little more enticing.

The last time Man City lost three Premier League matches in a row, was in November 2008 and a draw, priced at 23/10, would mean that run continues.

However, West Brom have won their last four matches at home against Man City, and Di Matteo’s side have taken the Premier League by storm, beating Arsenal and drawing at Old Trafford, and West Brom are 5/2 to beat Man City.

Total Goals

The Baggies are unbeaten at home in five games, but in their last four games at home have conceded exactly one goal and may have to score twice to win.

But despite their spending power, Man City’s attackers, barring Carlos Tevez, have failed to hit top form this season, scoring just 13 goals in their 10 games.

With West Brom managing just eight goals at the Hawthorns, the 5/6 for under 2.5 goals looks appealing and a 1-1 draw is priced at 11/2.

The Baggies have conceded a goal in the first 15 minutes of their last three games and Di Matteo’s side are 7/1 to come from behind and draw.

If Carlos Tevez is to start, he’s 4/5 to score any time. See the full West Brom vs Manchester City match betting odds market here.
