ℹ️ Team News: Brentford
The Brentford manager Thomas Frank has zero fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match thanks to a fully injury-free group ready to go. Matthew Cox cannot play in this game through suspension.
We are thinking that The Bees look set to use a 3-5-2 system for this game with David Raya, Mathias Joergensen, Ben Mee, Ethan Pinnock, Aaron Hickey, Mikkel Damsgaard, Vitaly Janelt, Frank Onyeka, Rico Henry, Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa.
📰 Team News: Manchester City
Owing to an otherwise available group of players, there is only a single fitness worry for the Manchester City gaffer Pep Guardiola to be concerned about. Nathan Aké (Hamstring Injury) misses out for this game. Benjamin Mendy is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
There’s a good chance that The Citizens appear most likely to make use of a 3-2-4-1 system using Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker, Nathan Ake, Aymeric Laporte, Kalvin Phillips, Rico Lewis, Riyad Mahrez, Cole Palmer, Phil Foden, Sergio Gomez and Julian Alvarez.
We believe that Brentford are dangerous enough to put a goal past this Manchester City side, but one goal possibly won’t be as many as they’ll concede.
We can see a close game with a 1-2 winning score for Manchester City by the conclusion of the game. It will be interesting to see how this one goes.
