Manchester City were coming off a 2-1 home win over Leicester City last Saturday. Manchester City moved up to third in the Premier League with a comfortable 3-1 win over West Brom on an emotional night at the Etihad Stadium.
The Citizens were looking to extend their current unbeaten run to five matches, while West Brom were looking for their first victory since March 18th.
Pep Guardiola‘s side knew a victory on Tuesday would see them inch closer to a spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League competition, and were favorites to win against a struggling West Brom side.
Goals from Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne and Yaya Toure saw City cruise to victory in Pablo Zabaleta’s final home appearance for the club.
West Brom were outplayed but claimed a late consolation through substitute Hal Robson-Kanu.
The result tightened City’s grip on a top-four position but Arsenal’s victory over Sunderland meant their close battle with the Gunners and Liverpool for Champions League spots would go to the final day.
