  • Competition: Premier League
  • Date: 5th February 2024
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
  • Venue: Gtech Community Stadium

Manchester City will be looking to keep their hopes of defending their Premier League title alive when they travel to the Gtech Community Stadium to face Brentford on Monday.

The hosts ended the 2023 calendar year on a low, having failed to win their final five league games, but the return of Ivan Toney over ten days ago has been a huge boost. Thomas Frank's side came from behind to beat Nottm Forest a fortnight ago and almost snatched a point away at Spurs. With the Bees also having a good record against City - two wins from the last two encounters - they will fancy their chances of taking something from Monday's game.

Manchester City meanwhile are known for starting campaigns slowly and getting stronger as time passes. The Citizens are currently five points behind Liverpool with one game in hand, but their recent form has been good. With eight wins from their last eight games and the fact that both Kevin De Bruyne and Haaland could start in a league game for the first time in around six months, Manchester City go into this game as favourites.

Brentford vs Manchester City Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

Brentford's games have been characterized by plenty of entertainment in recent weeks. Only two of the Bees' last ten games in all competitions have seen fewer than 2.5 goals scored, and both teams have scored in each of their last six games.

Speaking of goals, Manchester City can not only score them but are capable of doing so in large numbers. No team has scored more goals than Pep's side in the Premier League this season and the Citizens scored at least twice in ten of their last eleven outings.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
  • Brentford vs Manchester City prediction: 1-2

As far as Manchester City are concerned, there are no injuries or suspensions except Manuel Akanji. Erling Haaland featured after his injury lay-off as a substitute against Burnley, while John Stones played 90 minutes.

Pep will have a difficult decision to make in the final third on Monday after Julián Álvarez's brace last time out, but Rico Lewis is set to make way for Kyle Walker in defence.
