Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan injured again

Ilkay Gundogan suffered another injury scare after his return to the Manchester City starting line-up was cut short.

Those misses nearly cost the Citizens the game as the Baggies equalized in the second half after 71 minutes through Claudio Yacob who tapped in after a corner was not dealt with.

Sane, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Eliquim Mangala nearly put the game out of sight before the break but were let down by bad finishing or thwarted by the excellent Ben Foster.

Ilkay Gündoğan is hopeful of returning from his latest knee injury in just a week after he limped off in last night's Carabao Cup win over West Brom at The Hawthorns.

"I think the injury was not serious".

On the hour-mark, Sterling tested Foster again from the edge of the area only to see his shot stopped by the goalkeeper's feet. "He will have a scan, but the doctor told me it's a little [injury], and not a big issue".

Sane finally took charge on 77 minutes with an expertly-taken victor, only for West Brom to rattle the woodwork again in the dying seconds. Unfortunately, the action [tackle] was tough. I do not know the person, but I intend to give it red wine.

It's unclear exactly how much time Gundogan will miss, but according to Pollard, he only suffered minor damage, and he shouldn't be out for long.

No outfield West Brom player touched the ball until Hal Robson-Kanu kicked off, three minutes and 16 seconds into the game.

Tony Pulis will be disappointed with his side's inability to put away the numerous chances they got! "I thought we played really well in the second half".

Bet 365 are giving odds of 4/11 for Manchester City to win against West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday.
