Sports Mole looks ahead to the Premier League clash between Manchester City and West Bromwich Albion at the Etihad.

Manchester City will be looking for three points to secure second place in the Premier League on Tuesday night when West Bromwich Albion visit the Etihad Stadium.

Manager Roberto Mancini is likely to rotate his City side with Saturday's FA Cup final against Wigan Athletic looming large.

City were frustrated in a goalless draw with Swansea City last weekend but must keep focus with Chelsea four points back in third.

West Brom are searching for a point to confirm a top-10 finish in Steve Clarke's first year in charge at The Hawthorns.

The Baggies will be without suspended striker Marc Antoine-Fortune and come into the match on a run of just one win from their last six.
