Pulis hails City’s squad depth

West Brom manager Tony Pulis rates that Manchester City’s squad depth gives them the advantage in Wednesday’s League Cup tie..

The Baggies face City in a third-round clash at the Hawthorns, where he will field a strong starting XI, but concedes that Pep Guardiola has more talent at his disposal.

“I don’t think we’ve got anything to lose,” Pulis said. “City are on fire at the moment and everybody will expect them to be close to winning the Premier League title..

“They are an exceptionally strong club in respect of depth, so it’s going to be a tough game, but an enjoyable one. They have players who can play at the top level..

“From one to 24, they are really top-class players. If [Guardiola] makes a few changes, the players coming in will still be exceptional players, so we’ll have to be right on it..

“But we’ll put out a strong team and we’re going to have a go at it and give it the best we’ve got.”.

City have a great recent record against West Brom and remain unbeaten after five Premier League games heading in the midweek cup tie.
