Man City vs Brentford team news
Erling Haaland remains a doubt despite playing half an hour and scoring against Fulham last weekend. If he doesn’t start, Julian Alvarez will.
Phil Foden continues to be snubbed for a starting spot and will be desperate to be involved from the start ahead of the World Cup. Joao Cancelo is available again after serving a one-game ban midweek. Kyle Walker remains on the sidelines.
Brentford continues to juggle a long injury list. Vitaly Janelt could return otherwise Kristoffer Ajer, Pontus Jansson, Thomas Strakosha and Aaron Hickey are out until after the World Cup.
Man City vs Brentford Prediction
Manchester City should have no trouble seeing Brentford, much like they did in the two fixtures last season. Brentford struggles to keep their sheets clean, and there’s no tougher place to go than the Etihad.
Man City win, 3-0.
