City take on West Brom today away at The Hawthorns. In the corresponding fixture last season, City drew 0-0 on Boxing Day, the first time that City failed to score in a game last season. Roberto Mancini will be hoping for the three points this time around as City look to build on the momentum gathered before the international break.
The major absentee today will be David Silva who picked up a hamstring injury on international duty with Spain. Jack Rodwell also picked up the same injury whilst on England duty and joins Javi Garcia and Maicon on the sidelines.
