Premier League champions Man City return to league action as they welcome Brentford to the Etihad Stadium.

Two points behind surprise leaders Arsenal, City have been pretty consistent this season, winning 10 while losing just 1 of 13 matches played thus far.

In contrast, visiting Brentford are in the midst of a miserable run which included a shock League Cup exit to League two side Gillingham on Tuesday. The Bees now arrive in Manchester having won only 1 of their previous 9 matches.

Man City vs Brentford Betting Tips: Man City -2 AH

It´s hard to imagine anything other than a comfortable home victory here, with the Citizens absolutely dominant at the Etihad over the past twelve months. 

Indeed, since November 2021, City have picked up a remarkable 19 PL wins from 21 matches, with only Spurs leaving the Etihad with all 3 points over that period.

Winning each of their previous 11 home PL matches, Guardiola´s side have banged in a stunning 45 goals - that´s an average of over 4 goals per match. All 11 games saw at least over 2.5 goals scored.

With Brentford winning just 1 of their 8 most recent PL matches while leaking 9 goals in recent away defeats at Newcastle and Aston Villa, another heavy away loss seems likely for Thomas Franck´s side.

City won 2:0 when these sides last met at this venue, but following the return to fitness of Erling Haaland and considering both side's recent from, a more dominant and high-scoring victory seems inevitable, with City likely to cover the -2 AH selection.
