And the final whistle goes to bring surely the best Premier League match of the weekend to an end. Thank you for tuning into today's commentary and don't forget to follow all the reaction next. Cheers.
GOAL STURRIDGE! City finally put the game to bed with Ireland teeing up the sub to kill off the game with an easy finish.
SUB Petrov comes on and Robinho comes off for City to the approval of the Eastlands faithful
SUBS: Simpson and Valero come on for Dorrans and Koren
SUB Caicedo departs for the young Sturridge.
GOAL ELANO The Brazilian makes no mistake and City have the lead again.
PENALTY Elano is sent tumbling from Olsson's challenge and West Brom shoot themselves in the foot yet again.
HALF-TIME 2-1 to City The ref brings a brilliant first-half to an end. Robinho netted his first goal of the year, before City doubled their lead through Onuoha albeit in dubious fashion after Caicedo appeared to have blocked off Carson. West Brom had the better of the chances and they got a deserved goal when Brunt hit home Fortune's knock. What do you think to the opening period, send your views to firstname.lastname@example.org.
BOOKINGCarson is booked for is complaints about the goal
GOAL CITY DOUBLE THEIR LEAD The corner comes in from Elano and Onuoha heads it in. Caicedo looked to have blocked Carson after the first header went into the skies. But the ref saw no problem and the goal stands.
GOAL ROBINHO West Brom give the ball away on the half-way line and Ireland has it in the middle. He brings the ball forward gets his head up and delivers a wicked ball into the box, and Robinho drifts into the box and connects beautifully on the volley to give City the lead.
The sound of the Stone Roses blasts around Eastlands, before a U2 classic "Beautiful Day" gets me looking forward to today's game. Gareth from Wales emails in fancying Robinho to score his 1st goal since December and City to win comfortably 4-1. Gareth can get odds of 80/1 with Skybet if he fancies putting money on his prediction and so can you.
