It took a while, but West Brom boss Alan Pardew appears to finally be making some positive waves at the Hawthorns. When he took over, the team were in real peril after Tony Pulis left the club; relegation for the first time in nine years was looking all but a certainty. His early record was not great and he could not get a first win for the team since August for quite some time, but since they beat Brighton earlier this month, the outlook has been considerably more positive in the Midlands.
BETWAY HAVE YOU COVERED
But they face a task no one has managed at all this season in any competition. On Wednesday, Pardew’s men will attempt to beat Manchester City at the Etihad. Do that, and they will climb out of the bottom three. But City are so formidable at home, as they are anywhere, and it is very tough to see them pulling it off.
Pep Guardiola’s side have all but won the Premier League title, no matter what he says, and that is because they have been so strong all season. Even when faced with adversity, as they have been at times this month, drawing at Crystal Palace and losing at Liverpool, they have not been too shaken. On Tuesday, they reached their first final under Guardiola, beating Bristol City in the Carabao Cup.
