Manchester City vs Brentford

, KO: 19:30 Feb 20, 2024, Etihad Stadium
Brentford

After stumbling last weekend, Manchester United will be looking to set things back on track as they host Brentford in a midweek Premier League fixture. With Brentford looking out of sorts at the moment, the Champions will fancy their chances of claiming the upper hand on Tuesday.

Manchester City are coming off a 1-1 draw with Chelsea in their previous Premier League fixture. They fell behind just before the break and trailed for much of the encounter before Rodri struck the equaliser seven minutes from time.

While manager Pep Guardiola will be disappointed with the dropped points, the good news is that Manchester City are still on a 15 match unbeaten run. However, they have now dropped to third on the standings, four points behind leaders Liverpool.

With Manchester City claiming 13 wins from their 15-match unbeaten run, they will be confident of setting things back on track on Tuesday. They had also claimed five straight home wins across all competitions prior to last weekend’s stalemate with Chelsea.

Brentford were far from their best on Saturday as they were hammered 4-1 at home by Liverpool. They fell three goals down before Ivan Toney scored a consolation midway through the second half.

That result is consistent with Brentford's recent form as they have lost three of their last four matches. Thomas Frank’s men have been steadily sliding down the table and while the manager will be confident of avoiding a relegation scrap, they are only six points above the bottom three.

Brentford also found things difficult on their recent travels, suffering six defeats in their last seven away matches. However, they claimed a 2-0 victory at Wolverhampton Wanderers in their previous fixture on the road.

How the bookies view it

Manchester City are considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at 1/5 with 888Sport. A victory for Brentford is valued at 14/1 by Unibet while a draw is set at odds of 6/1 by BetVictor.

Head to head

Manchester City have a 6-4 advantage with one draw from 11 previous matches against Brentford. The Citizens claimed a 3-1 victory in the reverse fixture earlier this month, although Brentford picked up a 2-1 win on their last visit to Etihad Stadium.

Players to watch

Erling Haaland was guilty of missing chances last weekend and with the striker keen to set things right on Tuesday, could be backed at 8/15 by Betfred to find the net. Phil Foden has found the net five times in the last five meetings with Brentford and is priced at 21/10 by Paddy Power to maintain his scoring run.

Ivan Toney has impressed since returning to the Brentford team, scoring four goals in five appearances. The striker also netted a brace on the last visit to Etihad Stadium and is priced at 7/2 by Paddy Power to find the net on Tuesday.

Anything else catch the eye?
