John Stones missed the West Brom game through illness but should be in contention to start, although new signing Aymeric Laporte looked assured on his debut. "Of course he has to adapt because the Premier League is special in many senses".

The game wasn't without needle though, and days after the City boss complained about challenges on his players, both Fernandinho and Matt Phillips were lucky to escape red cards. It was the third fastest goal in Premier League history.

Luke Shaw's recent form has won him a more elevated position in the United squad, and he could return to the starting XI in place of Young, while Marcos Rojo and Victor Lindelof will be on standby for potential call-ups after the trouble United suffered at the heart of their defence at Wembley.

The Albion keeper was called into action againt soon after, punching clear Kyle Walker's swirling cross, as the home side penned their visitors into their own half.

Laporte said: "A lot has happened but it has all been very good and I've enjoyed it".

On the receiving end of that horror tackle late on in the game, which was the focal point of most post match punditry.

Came on a little earlier than he probably expected, but equipped himself well.

When De Bruyne did beat Foster he was foiled by the top of the crossbar but the Belgian got his reward after the break. "They were absolutely terrific".

'From now on Lukas will train with us for the season.

Across the city meanwhile Mourinho has hardly been a shrinking violet when it comes to spending money.

Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne, left, avoids a challenge from West Bromwich Albion's James McClean.

The hosts opened the scoring on 19 minutes when Kevin De Bruyne slid a beautiful reverse pass to Fernandinho who poked home from an angle.

"When you ask me what he (Sterling) can improve - that (finishing)!" said Guardiola, whose side remains in the hunt for an unprecedented quadruple of Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League titles in the one season. They have an opinion and I have another one, but they are the bosses and we have to accept that.

West Brom, meanwhile, blooded their high-profile January recruit Daniel Sturridge only as a late substitute and were left three points adrift at the bottom.

"The image speaks for itself". In the process, City went past 100 goals for the season in all competitions.

Receiving the ball from the kickoff, Jan Vertonghen took a touch and sent a long ball forward that Harry Kane flicked on.
