Pulis counts the cost

Tony Pulis is expecting a very difficult match on Tuesday when his West Brom side visit Manchester City.

Albion were beaten 1-0 by champions Chelsea at The Hawthorns last Friday and are struggling with injuries heading into the match at the Etihad Stadium.

Matt Phillips will miss the match as he is still suffering with the hamstring injury he picked up in training last month while Gareth McAuley sustained a problem in the second half of Friday's defeat.

Hal Robson-Kanu may also have to sit out the match because of a hamstring injury.

"Matty won't be fit," confirmed Pulis. "I don't think Gareth will be fit either because of the injury he picked up against Chelsea.

"We are hoping that he will be fine for the game at Swansea on Sunday. We will have to wait and see with Hal and make a last-minute decision.

"We are heading to Manchester City, who are one of the best sides in the league, off the back of playing the best team in the league on Friday night. We know that it’s going to 'e very tough physically."

The Baggies are still eighth in the Premier League table despite failing to win any of their last seven matches since beating Arsenal in mid-March.

West Brom are 18/1 to draw 1-1 with Manchester City who are 1/500 to finish in the top four this season. City are 1/7 to win Tuesday's encounter.
