(live @ Sky Calcio 11)
City of Manchester Stadium
• If City fail to win they will have gone four league matches without a victory - their worst run since October/November 2009, when they drew seven successive matches - a run that eventually led to Mark Hughes' sacking.
• West Brom have lost all three away games against the teams in the current top four of the Premier League and taken one point from six matches overall.
Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli begins a three-match ban following his sending off in the 1-0 defeat at Arsenal. The City boss revealed Yaya Toure is unlikely to play, having been withdrawn after just 17 minutes of the Emirates clash. But there is better news on David Silva, who was forced to sit out last weekend's trip to Emirates Stadium, and Mancini expects the Spaniard to face the Baggies. There could also be changes at the back, with Aleksandar Kolarov and Micah Richards in line for starts at full-back having been benched at Arsenal.
West Brom have received a double injury blow ahead of tomorrow's trip to Manchester City. Chris Brunt and Liam Ridgewell both struggled with knee problems in Saturday's 3-0 win over Blackburn and have been ruled out. Paul Scharner and Nicky Shorey will be in contention to replace the duo. Jerome Thomas will also miss his second successive game as he continues to recover from a knee injury.
