Manchester City vs Brentford in the Premier League on Feb 9. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Manchester City vs Brentford in the Premier League on Feb 9. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

After being held away at Southampton, the Manchester City juggernaut has seemingly missed a gear and now Pep Guardiola will be ready to crack the whip, as his players look to keep Liverpool in the distance.

While as far as Brentord are concerned, their concerns may well be relegation if current form does not improve and with a wretched run of results as of late, they could be in for another one at the Etihad.

Manchester City To Win To Nil

With Manchester City in the mood to take out earlier frustrations, they will look to make light work of their Brentford opposition and although the visitors have held their own in the division, they are likely to struggle at the Etihad.

Which means City will look to go up through the gears early on and if they can deliver maximum points as expected, it will silence any talk of them hitting a rut in terms of domestic form.

Therefore, with City being dominant at both ends of the field, a home win and them also keeping a clean sheet will be the order of the day and if you also think that will be the case, you can back this at odds of 37/50.

Manchester City Form, squad news, opinion

After cultivating a 12-match winning streak in the Premier League, Manchester City found out once again that 13 is an unlucky number and after being held by Southampton before the winter break, their perfect chain of results stops at a dozen.

Which means Pep Guardiola’s men have at least shown one sign of weakness in recent times and although they are still clear at the top of the Premier League table, the title race is not quite won yet.

A point that Guardiola himself was quick to reiterate after City’s draw with Southampton and although some will suggest that the pressure is starting to get to the Spaniard, his crankiness was more a by-product of his desire to win at all costs.

Something that City have done in spades recently and with a nine-point margin at the top of the table - even with Liverpool currently possessing a game in hand, there is still plenty of breathing room at the summit.

With that said, City will not be looking to rest on their laurels anytime soon and by the same token, the man in charge will not let his players enter cruise control. Which means, it could be a difficult evening for Brentford.

In terms of injuries and suspensions going into the visit of Brentford, City will be able to call upon the services of Riyad Mahrez once again and his inclusion in the matchday squad will be a huge boost to Pep Guardiola’s title push.

Brentford Form, squad news, opinion

Although “Drone Stops Play” was one of the stranger headlines of this or any other Premier League season, it should not mask the fact that Brentford slipped to another defeat and all of a sudden, the Bees have lost a considerable amount of buzz.

After riding the wave of promotion in the first third of the campaign, the second is showing to be much more of a struggle and it is the early accrual of points which is keeping them above water at the moment.

However, Brentford cannot swim against the tide forever and with Thomas Frank recently putting pen to paper on a new contract, the Dane will have to start earning that extension to his employment.

It might be a leap to suggest that Brentford find themselves in a relegation battle, but if their current trajectory continues, they will soon be dragged into a rather unwanted position in the table.

At the same time, a trip to the Etihad is not going to define their season by any stretch and with it being something of a free hit, it may offer Brentford the chance to play the kind of football that they have been known for in recent years.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Manchester City, Frank Onyeka will be available after AFCON duty. While at the time of writing there are still injury doubts attached to both Josh Dasilva and David Raya.

History

There is very little in the way of history between these two clubs and with just 14 meetings between the pair, it is more of a rivalry which is only just writing a new chapter this season.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Manchester City have won on 8 occasions, Brentford 5 and there has been 1 draw.

About the Venue

Sometimes accused of being a bit too quiet, the Etihad does its best to ignore that label and with their supporters being treated to world-class footballers each fortnight, this will be another occasion where the City faithful can cheer on their favourites.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

With Manchester City having plenty of time to lick their wounds, they will return from the winter break in the mood to not just go again but win again and with the title race just increasing in interest slightly, they will look to quash any Liverpool resurgence.

Which means Brentford will likely be caught in the crossfire on their return to Premier League action and although Thomas Frank’s side will always give everything in terms of effort, effort alone will not be enough at the Etihad.
