Man City West Brom Odds : Mancini aims for improvement without Balotelli at Etihad
Manchester City will look to get their season back on track when they take on West Brom at the Ethiad Stadium on Wednesday night, as Roy Hodgeson’s men look an attractive proposition for punters at 12/1 considering the implosion currently taking place at the Etihad.
City’s title hopes looked all but over after they suffered a 1-0 defeat at Arsenal on Sunday. With Manchester United winning against QPR earlier that day, Roberto Mancini’s men knew they had to pick up all three points at the Emirates. However, they now find themselves eight points behind United.
Mancini’s side didn’t look anywhere near at their best at the weekend and Mario Balotelli’s sending off in injury time really did rub salt in their wounds.
The Citizens have now not won in three Premier League games, their worst run of the season. It appears as though they are our of sorts at the wrong time of the season.
City will feel as if they have to win every game from now until the end of the campaign and hope that Sir Alex Ferguson’s men slip up. If Mancini’s men do slip up in the next few games the title could be mathematically over by the time the two sides meet on April 30th.

As for West Brom, they all but secured their Premier League survival for another year with a very impressive 3-0 win at home to Blackburn on Saturday.
Although The Baggies look almost certain to staying up they will want to go past the 40 point mark, something they could do with a positive result at the Ethiad.
Roy Hodgson’s side have been very impressive on the road this season, picking up 21 points, compared to their 18 at the Hawthorns. This should give them confidence going into Wednesday night’s encounter.
It should be a great game at The Ethiad Stadium, with West Brom aiming for a top ten finish and Man City wanting to keep their season alive.
It all gets underway from 7.45pm on Wednesday.
