Manchester City have registered a decisive 3-1 victory at home against West Bromwich, to climb back to 3rd place in the English premier League with one match to go.

It took the hosts 27 minutes to open the scoring when Gabriel Jesus tapped in Kevin De Bruyne's cut-back, before Jesus turned provider to set-up De Bruyne, who lashed the ball into the bottom corner to make it 2-0.

Yaya Toure extended the Sky Blues’ advantage after the interval as he placed the ball past the keeper following a one-two with Sergio Aguero. But, West Brom surprised their hosts when Thomas Robson-Kanu scored a late consolation for his side.

A victory at Watford in their final match of the season on Sunday, will mean that Man City finish above Liverpool and Arsenal in 3rd place, and qualify for the Champions League, alongside champions Chelsea and 2nd placed Tottenham.
