Manchester City vs West Brom Confirmed lineups – Citizen ace benched for last Etihad game

Manchester City take on West Brom at the Etihad stadium focused on booking a top-four spot.

City are currently third and will need to avoid defeat with fourth-place Liverpool and fifth-place Arsenal breathing down their necks.

Citizens veteran Pablo Zabaleta has been benched in his last game for the club at the Etihad.

Zabaleta will be a free agent at the end of the season as City have not offered him a contract extension.

Aleksandar Kolarov will start instead with Fernandinho on the other flank.

Vincent Company will start his seventh consecutive game in central defence alongside Otamendi.

Germany international of Turkish origin Ilkay Gundogan is out injured.

England international Raheed Sterling has been dropped for Sergio Aguero who missed the weekend game against Leicester City.

Star striker Jesus has kept his place upfront.
