The first stage of the Premier League ends tonight with a match between West Bromwich Albion and Manchester City. The two teams will meet from 22:00 The Hawthorns stadium. “Citizens” want to begin the new season with a win, while local band would be satisfied with a draw.
West Bromwich ended the season earlier in force and managed to beat teams like Manchester United towards the end or Chelsea. WBA won six of seven friendlies played in the summer, but generally only modest teams met. Tony Pulis prepared by the group paid 12 million pounds to acquire Chester, Lambert McClean. Also Gnabry loan from Arsenal, while the list of departures do not find very important players.
Joleon Lescott is uncertain because of medical problems, but the home team’s coach hopes tonight will be based on its services. It is not known yet any McAuley’s situation, while Foster will definitely miss because of injury. There are big chances to see the work and new acquisitions made in the summer, but will stay on the sidelines Gnabry because his loan was made too late.
After the previous edition of the championship was ranked only second place Manchester City has proposed that in 2015/2016 to attack the champion title again. “Citizens” were certainly a lot that allows them to dream of this, and in summer they managed to acquire Sterling, Delph and Roberts. Players like Milner, Negredo, Richards, Nastasia Jovetic or have found other commitments and will not wear jersey this season in Manchester band. City had oscillated in friendlies and I can say that some parties had an extremely modest benefit.
Clichy and Delph will not perform tonight because of injury. Silva, Nasri and Aguero are fully recovering from medical issues covered in the summer, but most likely only Spaniard will play from the first minute.
