Entertaining City, West Bromwich Coach Hopes to Earn One Point

The sharpness of City's attacking line will be West Bromwich Albion's biggest threat.

MANCHESTER - Manchester City will visit West Bromwich Albion (WBA) headquarters at The Hawthorns Stadium in Week 20 of the English Premier League, Wednesday (27/1) early morning WIB. The sharpness of City's attack line will be the biggest threat to the home team.

Moreover, the Baggies' defensive performance was so bad. Sam Allardyce's squad has become the team with the worst defense on the league stage this season after conceding 43 goals in 19 matches. In fact, in the last four matches on the Premier League stage, the Baggies' goal conceded 13 goals.

The fragility of this defense also has an impact on the WBA's performance trend. Last season's Championship Division runner-up swallowed three defeats from the last four matches.

Two weeks ago, they won when they humiliated Wolverhampton Wanderers, the Baggies failed to take advantage of this momentum in their next match. WBA actually gave up 1-2 at the hands of West Ham United, in the middle of last week. In the end, the Baggies still haven't moved from the relegation zone and slumped to second from bottom with a collection of 11 points from 19 matches.

"Our next match will be very difficult, against one of the best teams in the country, Manchester City. They are in a trend of good performance. However, if we can pick one point like when we visited their headquarters, then it will be a big asset for the rest of our journey this season, '' Allarydce said as reported by the Birmingham Mail , Monday (25/1).

WBA was able to surprise City when they visited the Etihad Stadium at the first meeting of the season, mid-December. At that time, the WBA, which was still coached by Slaven Bilic, drew City 1-1.

However, at that point, City had just come out of a bad period at the start of the season and still hadn't found their best form. Now, conditions are a little different, City are much better, while WBA has not shown any significant progress since Allardyce was appointed.
