Manchester City vs Brentford 12.11.2022
Manchester City needed a late injury-time penalty to overcome Fulham 2-1 as they continue playing cat and mouse with Arsenal in this thrilling EPL title fight. Pep as expected was quite pleased with the performance of his team as they fought for the win with 10 men for an hour following the dismissal of Cancelo in the 26th minute. They had no problems in midweek, however, as they comfortably beat Chelsea 2-0 in the 3rd round of the EFL Cup.
Brentford are in a bit of a slump. They were left licking their wounds in their EFL Cup match in midweek as they lost on penalties to lower division outfit, Gillingham. They have now failed to win any of their last seven matches across all competitions (4D, 3L) and that drought could very well extend here when they come up against the juggernaut from the blue half of Manchester. It doesn’t help coach Thomas Frank that his injury list is starting to pile and his top striker is under an FA betting investigation.
City have been a different animal at home. They have absolutely beaten everyone to a pulp at the Etihad winning the last 17 straight matches across all competitions. We fancy them to go on the rampage here especially now that Haaland is back and we are backing them to score at least three goals here.
