West Brom vs Man City

Man City simply love to play West Brom. It is easy to see why as they have 14 wins and a draw against them. They have also won all of the last 11 meetings. A win for City will also give them the best-ever start for any team in EPL history after 10 matches.

Sergio Aguero will relish the prospect of becoming the club's all-time leading scorer as he has a fine record against West Brom, having grabbed seven goals and four assists in ten previous turnouts.

Craig Dawson will sit out for two months with a knee injury, as is City captain Vincent Kompany, who is ten days away from full fitness.
