Man City v West Brom preview

BY foxsports • May 6, 2013

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini may opt to shuffle his pack for Tuesday's Premier League clash with West Brom at the Etihad Stadium.

Mancini, whose side face Wigan in the FA Cup final four days after the Albion match, rested striker Carlos Tevez by dropping him to the bench for Saturday's 0-0 league draw at Swansea, while midfielder Yaya Toure was withdrawn at half-time in that game as a precaution.

Someone certain not to feature is Scott Sinclair, following confirmation at the weekend that the winger was being treated in hospital for a blood clot on his shoulder.

West Brom head coach Steve Clarke could name an unchanged squad for his side's trip to the North West.

Chris Brunt (knee) and Goran Popov (calf) are unlikely to be back in time for the clash, while Marc-Antoine Fortune is once again suspended.

James Morrison may move up from the bench to the starting XI after recovering from a groin strain and unpopular forward Peter Odemwingie is still waiting for his first action since March 30.
