Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Manchester City will try to overtake Arsenal in top position when they welcome Brentford to their Etihad Stadium on Saturday. Pep Guardiola’s troops did well to survive Fulham at the weekend, with Erling Haaland scoring the winner from the penalty spot, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to defend the trophy. Haaland is widely expected to return to the starting XI, while Kyle Walker should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Bees, on the other hand, welcome key attacker Ivan Toney back from suspension, but the 26-year-old is unlikely to help the capital club avoid defeat at Etihad Stadium as Man City are a real force to be reckoned with at home. All Jansson, Hickey, and Baptiste are out of contention with injuries for the visiting side, while Yoane Wissa should drop to the bench.
