Man City have scored 26 goals fewer than they had after 35 games last season.
City have kept a clean sheet in six of their last eight home games.
Carlos Tevez has scored in three of City’s last four games on home soil.
The Baggies have won just one of their last six league matches.
West Brom have only won three of their last 11 games on their travels; however, two of those wins have come in their last five outings.
Despite losing to Wigan at the weekend, this is already West Brom’s most successful Premier League season ever.
Shane Long has scored in his last two matches; one more goal would be his ninth in the league and make this his most successful Premier League season.
