A City side with Aguero, Jesus and Sterling suddenly looked human in the Cup in midweek. Are they about to have their first setback?
Let’s make it clear from the start, we’re not saying this will happen, but the crucial point is that no Tony Pulis side should ever be 35/1 to win 1-0 at home. So let’s take that huge slice of value with BetVictor.
West Brom are actually unbeaten at home (W1 D3) and they give everyone a game. Even on the road at Arsenal the 2-0 defeat scoreline tells nothing of the hard luck story which denied them a notable result.
City have obviously been imperious but we’ve seen amazing starts to the season before, not least from them, and they rarely continue indefinitely. A bad result can come out of nowhere. See Chelsea at Selhurst Park for a recent example or Man Utd at Huddersfield only last weekend.
If the Baggies are to spring a shock it’s even less likely to be a high scoring thriller so let’s double down on their traditionally favourite victory scoreline.
