There is one simple scenario. If West Bromwich Albion manage to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford this afternoon Manchester City will, without kicking a ball be crowned 2017/18 Premier League champions.

What will you be doing during the match?

West Brom are fighting for their Premier League survival, (currently at the foot of the table) so, I would expect them to move ‘heaven and earth’ to get something from the game. Wouldn’t you?

Being realistic though, I really can’t see the Baggies getting anything, but hey, you never know.

On a personal note – I would rather wait until Saturday, at the Etihad until we get our hands on our second piece of silverware of the season. That’s if we beat another relegation threatened, Swansea City.

I don’t want to count my chickens just yet, but, did you know?

United v WBA – head-to-head (courtesy of the BBC).

West Brom have won three of the nine Premier League matches against Manchester United since Sir Alex Ferguson retired as United manager (D2, L4).

Of those three Baggies wins, two came at Old Trafford: 2-1 in September 2013 and 1-0 in May 2015.

United are looking to complete the league double over the Baggies for the first time since the 2011-12 season.

City stats, courtesy of Opta.

City need three wins from five to break the 95 point record, held by Chelsea (2004/05).

City need five wins from five to break 100 points, which has never been done before.

City need 11 goals to break the 103 goal record, held by Chelsea (2009/10).

I for one will be keeping half an eye on today’s Old Trafford proceedings. Just in case.

Come on CITY!
