  6. Attack versus defence

    West Brom 0-2 Manchester City

    It is attack versus defence at the Hawthorns. The graphics show the average touch position for each of the players. It is no surprise that Manchester City are 2-0 up. West Brom fans are even chanting "we've got the ball". David Silva flies into a tackle. That was meaty. I didn't think the diminutive Spaniard did things like that. A boomer of a tackle on Craig Dawson.

  7. 'Not even two keepers would have saved that'

    West Brom 0-2 Manchester City

    Martin Keown

    Former Arsenal defender and MOTD2 pundit

    Sometimes you turn round to your keeper and say, "any danger of you making a save?"

    But there's no way any keeper, not even two keepers would save that.

    It's a beautiful strike by Aguero.

  8. 'Aguero always hits the target'

    West Brom 0-1 Man City

    Mark Lawrenson

    Former Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    You always feel when Aguero gets in that position at the very least he hits the target.

    City were playing at full pace there which completely unhinged West Brom. Three or four passes and they were through.

  9. 'West Brom fans must be realistic'

    West Brom v Manchester City (15:00)

    Danny Mills

    Ex-England defender on Final Score

    West Brom fans need to be a little realistic.

    Tony Pulis will keep them in the Premier League.

    Will it be great to watch every week? No.

    He does need to make it more attractive to watch, but the results have to come first.

  10. Team news

    West Brom v Man City (15:00 BST)

    West Brom make two changes to the side that lost 2-1 to Liverpool last Saturday. Jonny Evans returns from a one-match ban to replace the suspended Claudio Yacob in defensive midfield, while Chris Brunt makes his first start since recovering from a knee ligament injury, replacing Matt Phillips.

    Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and David Silva among those to return, but Vincent Kompany - replaced in midweek because he was "tired" - is on the bench, as is Kevin De Bruyne.
