Manchester City come into the game having won 10 games in a row as part of a 17-match unbeaten run in all competitions. A phenomenal run Pep and his team will look to continue.

The 19th placed Baggies have won just twice in the league this season, but have claimed victory in two of their previous four games in all competitions.

A fantastic match is in store for us as Pep will not underestimate this opponent in what should be a fascinating encounter. Pep v Big Sam Allardyce will be much fun. Which team will come out in front?
