West Brom v Manchester City live stream, BT Sport, Tuesday 26 January, 8.15pm GMT
Manchester City will move to the top of the Premier League table for the first time this season if they beat West Brom on Tuesday.
City (opens in new tab) are currently two points behind league leaders Manchester United (opens in new tab), but their arch-rivals do not play their next game until Thursday. That gives Pep Guardiola’s side the chance to climb to the summit of the standings as they seek their 11th consecutive victory in all competitions. City have amassed 18 points from the last 18 available and are in ominous form at present, with just two goals conceded in their last 10 league matches.
Indeed, if City were vulnerable defensively at times last term, the same cannot be said this time around. No team in the division has conceded as few goals as Guardiola’s side, whose backline has been breached on only 13 occasions. With Liverpool (opens in new tab) going through a sticky patch, City are now the bookmakers’ favourites to finish on top of the pile.
West Brom (opens in new tab) were the last team to take points off City in the Premier League, drawing 1-1 at the Etihad Stadium in the middle of December. Despite that commendable result Slaven Bilic was sacked the next day, with Sam Allardyce installed in his stead. The veteran relegation-battler has a huge job on his hands to pull the Baggies clear of danger, with West Brom currently six points adrift of safety.
City will have to make do without Kevin De Bruyne, who has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a muscular injury. Kyle Walker could return to the team after missing the FA Cup victory over Cheltenham with a knock, but Nathan Ake and Sergio Aguero are still out.
West Brom will be unable to call upon the services Grady Diangana and Conor Townsend, who are both out injured, but Robert Snodgrass and Matt Phillips are in line to return to the starting XI.
Kick-off is at 8.15pm GMT and the game is being shown on BT Sport 2 in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a West Brom v Manchester City live stream live stream from outside your country
If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below).
All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
