Sergio Aguero: Set to start up front for Man City

Monday, April 21

Manchester City v West Brom (2000)

Playmaker David Silva is a doubt for City due to an ankle problem as is winger Jesus Navas, while Monday's game will come too soon for midfielder Yaya Toure to return after his leg injury. Defender Matija Nastasic, out of action since February because of a knee complaint, remains unavailable.

Defender Jonas Olsson and midfielder James Morrison are doubts for the Baggies after missing training this week with respective Achilles and ankle problems. On-loan winger Scott Sinclair will definitely sit the match out as it is against his parent club.

Last season: Man City 1 West Brom 0, West Brom 1 Man City 2

Last five league matches: Man City W D W L D; West Brom W L D W D

Top scorers (all competitions): Sergio Aguero (Man City) 26; Saido Berahino (West Brom) 8

Referee: Phil Dowd (Staffordshire).

Our verdict: Manchester City 2 West Brom 0
