West Brom are traditionally known as one of the biggest yo-yo clubs in English football, but last season they secured their place in the Premier League for a fifth straight year. However, for long periods it had looked as if they would be heading for the Championship after a dismal start that saw them win just four games before Christmas. Having claimed the Premier League title in the 2013-14 season, Manchester City were expected to compete for honours again last term and they were level with Chelsea at the top of the table after beating Sunderland on New Year's Day. However, a run of four games in the league without a win followed and defeats to Burnley and Liverpool in March saw them slip out of the running altogether. They eventually recovered to win their final six games of the season and finish in second place, but the same will not be tolerated by the club's owners again. The pressure is now firmly on manager Manuel Pellegrini to win silverware this season, but the Chilean has been given a boost after signing a contract extension earlier today. Away win.
