[LIVE NOW] ‘Man City 0-1 Brentford’ Full HD Online Live Stream
The Blues find themselves two points behind the Gunners, but with the London club not in action until Saturday evening, City can move to the top of the league table – at least for a few hours.
Brentford have made a decent start to their domestic campaign, losing just four of their opening 14 Premier League matches. Despite this, several pundits are still backing City to come out on top when the two sides meet on Saturday.
“Tottenham boss Antonio Conte talked about how tired England striker Harry Kane was in midweek and there are some difficult decisions for managers to make about resting some players before the World Cup depending on their fitness.
“You have to remember though that there are points at stake here and people are under pressure. So, Pep Guardiola won’t be doing anyone else any favours – his priority is getting the win for Manchester City. City beat Fulham the hard way last week with 10 men and through a last-minute penalty, but I think things will be a lot more straightforward for them this time.
“Brentford don’t seem to be the same side when they are away from home – they still haven’t beaten anyone on the road this season, and that is not going to change here.”
“Brentford need to be careful, or they may well get dragged into the relegation zone. They’re playing well but they don’t seem to be winning Premier League matches. Manchester City do make mistakes, and you have to take advantage when they do.
