Bony took seven shots and scored his first Manchester City goal during their 3-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.

West Brom went down to 10 men just 90 seconds into the match, and City followed with an all-out blitz, with Bony actually finishing with fewer shots than Sergio Aguero (9) and David Silva (10). Bony looked very comfortable in attack with Aguero, and certainly seemed to do enough to keep his spot in the starting lineup.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bony is in the starting lineup for Saturday's match against West Brom.

Bony will partner up front with Sergio Aguero in just his second start since moving over from Swansea. In his single previous start, which came March 4 against Leicester, he finished with six shots, though only one on goal. He continues to look for his first score in blue.

Bony took one shot, which was on goal, during his Manchester City debut Saturday against Newcastle.

Bony came off the bench in his first match for City, with Edin Dzeko starting up front alongside Sergio Aguero. Given the hefty fee paid by the Citizens to bring him aboard from Swansea, it wouldn't be surprising if he earned a starting job sooner rather than later.

Bony is available off the bench for Saturday's match against Newcastle.

Bony is still expected to feature, and he could be the easy replacement for Sergio Aguero, who will start despite dealing with a back injury recently.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday that Bony is in the squad for Saturday's match against Newcastle, but he would not reveal whether he would start.

There are a couple factors working in Bony's favor to start, as Sergio Aguero has been battling some back soreness recently, which could mean he is rested ahead of Tuesday's Champions League match against Barcelona. Bony certainly has plenty of upside either way, but starter's minutes would surely make him an attractive fantasy option.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday that Bony will not play Wednesday against Stoke City, as it will be too soon since his return from the Africa Cup of Nations, ESPN FC reports.

Bony will have to wait until Feb. 21 against Newcastle to make his Manchester City debut.

Bony officially signed with Manchester City on Wednesday after transferring from Swansea City.

Bony, who is away with the Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup of Nations, has been magnificent for Swansea this season, but it is unclear exactly where he fits in with Man City. Sergio Aguero will certainly start when he's fit, leaving Bony to battle with Stevan Jovetic and Edin Dzeko for playing time.

Manchester City have agreed a £25 million transfer fee for Bony, which can rise to £28 million, and he will sign a four-and-a-half year, £100,000 per week contract, The Guardian reports.

Bony is currently with the Ivory Coast for the Africa Cup of Nations, but he'll then join a crowded strike force in Manchester led by Sergio Aguero, Stevan Jovetic and Edin Dzeko, each of whom have dealt with injuries this season.
