West Brom and Man City will kick off their English Premier League campaigns when they clash on Monday night in West Brom.

The two teams have different aims heading into this season. Man City will be looking to improve on a campaign that saw them finish a full eight points behind Chelsea last season. Man City has one goal in mind this season, and that is to finish atop the English Premier League.

West Bromwich Albion, on the other hand, is looking to improve upon their 13th place finish last year and move more into the middle of the table. West Brom finished just 9 points out of relegation last season and they will definitely want to put more distance between themselves and the relegated teams.


Man City is the big favourite to win on Monday - here are the current betting odds:

West Brom, 5.50
Draw, 3.50
Man City, 1.70

According to these odds, West Brom has about a 18.18% chance of winning on Monday, while Man City is currently listed at about 59% to win.


Man City is one of the current favourites, along with Chelsea, Arsenal and Man Utd, to win the English Premier League this season. West Brom, on the other hand, is currently listed at 2,001.00 to win.

With Chelsea stumbling on Saturday, Man City could take a quick two point lead on their foes on Monday afternoon.
