Third travels to face sixth at the Hawthorns as the Premier League swings back into action this weekend.
City journey to the midlands protecting an unbeaten record but will face a stiff test against a WBA side that has started strongly under their new boss Steve Clarke.
Nevertheless, the Blues are odds-on 3/4 with betting partner Paddy Power to claim all three points Albion are at 7/2 with the draw chalked up at 11/4.
Roberto Mancini’s side has been buoyed recently by the return to action of Sergio Aguero – he scored against Sunderland as a substitute - and he proved his form with a goal in Argentina’s 3-0 win over Uruguay last Friday.
Aguero and Carlos Tevez are both 4/1 in Paddy Power’s online betting to score the first goal and both are evens to be on the ‘anytime’ goal scorers’ list.
The Baggies held Mancini’s side to a 0-0 draw at the Hawthorns last season but the Champions ran out 2-0 winners the year before with Mario Balotelli scoring twice in a six-minute spell in the first half.
Balotelli’s double strike came in the 20th and 26th minute and he’s 13/2 in the ‘Two goals or more market’ to repeat the feat on Saturday. He, too, was on target for his country in midweek and is 9/2 to score the game’s opening goal.
The joint leading-scorer at Euro 2012 is 3/1 in the Insurebet First goal scorer market while City’s first goal to come in the 11th-20th minute is 7/2, it is 11/4 that exactly two goals are scored in the contest.
Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko, another to grab a goal on international duty, completes the in-form quartet of hitmen at Mancini’s disposal and is 11/2 to score first for Manchester City this weekend against West Brom and 6/4 to score at ‘anytime’ in Paddy Power’s list.
City kept a first clean sheet of the season in their pre-break win over Sunderland and to win to nil is 2/1 with Paddy Power.
