Man City vs West Brom – Dzeko to find the target

| 04.02.2011

Manchester City may be relying on Edin Dzeko to break his wait for a Premier League goal as they look to get their campaign back on track with a victory over West Brom.

First Goalscorer

Dzeko is 3/1 in the Premier League betting to open the scoring against West Brom, which would be his first league goal in his fourth start since arriving from Wolfsburg.

The Bosnian’s chances of finding the scoresheet are enhanced by the fact that the Baggies have found it exceedingly difficult to keep clean sheets as they have conceded in all of their last 22 Premier League games.

However, Manchester City may prefer it if Carlos Tevez added to his goal tally this season, as they have still never lost a Premier League game when he has found the target.

Tevez is 5/2 to strike first against West Brom, which would be his 16th goal of the season.

West Brom’s chances are set to be boosted by the news that their top scorer Peter Odemwingie should overcome an ankle injury to feature and he is 8/1 to break the deadlock.

Match Odds

Manchester City have already beaten West Brom in the league this season when they secured a 2-0 victory at the Hawthorns when the hosts failed to have a single shot on target.

Manchester City’s betting odds are 2/5 to witness success again, which would represent a first ever Premier League double over West Brom.

West Brom are 7/1 to beat Manchester City, with the draw priced at 7/2.

Backing the draw could also prove profitable as West Brom have avoided defeat in four of their last five away games with Manchester City.

A £25 stake on the scorecast of Manchester City beating West Brom 2-0 and Tevez scoring first would return £350. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
