Manchester City’s title-hopes hang in the balance today when they host West Bromwich Albion at the Etihad Stadium at 2:45pm on NBCSN or online via Live Extra.
City’s chase for the title hit two bumps last week when they lost 3-2 to Liverpool and drew 2-2 with Sunderland. Those results have left the 3rd place Citizens in a tough situation, having to win their remaining five matches while hoping Liverpool drop points.
It won’t come easy for the Baggies as West Brom have issues of their own as they sit 17th place just three ahead of relegation strugglers Cardiff City and Fulham.
