Manchester City and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

City are unbeaten in their last 15 matches, winning 13, and should be too strong for a Brentford side who have lost seven of their 11 Premier League away games this term. However, the Bees netted in the reverse fixture and scored twice against Spurs and once against Liverpool in recent defeats, suggesting they may breach the champions, who have recently conceded to Burnley and Copenhagen.

Manchester City 3-1

Reason for tip

Three of Manchester City’s last five matches have finished 3-1, including the reverse fixture, and it could pay to back that scoreline on Tuesday. The hosts have looked rampant since the returns of Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne and should have no issues in scoring a few at the Etihad Stadium.

Phil Foden To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Phil Foden netted a hat-trick in the reverse fixture and will be looking to punish the Bees once more. He is looking lively having registered 18 shots in his last four matches and could find the net on Tuesday.

Manchester City vs Brentford Predictions

  • Manchester City are unbeaten in their last 47 midweek Premier League home games, winning 41
  • Brentford have lost seven of their 11 Premier League away games this term
  • Both teams have scored in nine of the Bees’ last ten matches and four of City’s last five

City to bounce back to winning ways

Manchester City were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Chelsea on Saturday but have a good opportunity to bounce back against an out-of-form Brentford on Tuesday and get their title charge back on track.

The Bees have lost three of their last four matches, conceding at least three goals in each of those defeats, and have managed just two wins in their last ten Premier League games, suggesting they are set to struggle against the champions who are unbeaten in their last 15 matches in a run that has included 13 victories.

City are beginning to look ruthless again, in no small part thanks to the returns of Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne from injury, and should be too strong for Brentford.

Bees can sting hosts in defeat

However, the Bees could at least land a blow on Tuesday as City’s defence has looked shaky all season and the champions have managed one clean sheet in their last five matches, conceding to relative minnows Copenhagen and struggling Burnley in that run.

Pep Guardiola’s side looked vulnerable on the counter in their draw with Chelsea on Saturday as the Blues looked like scoring almost every time they nicked the ball back from their possession-dominant hosts and Brentford, with a dangerous front two of Ivan Toney and an in-form Neal Maupay, could look to deploy similar tactics on Tuesday.

The Bees netted in the reverse fixture and managed nine shots – a solid level of output against such a strong side – and could breach the champions once again.

Citizens can get title charge back on track

Although, Brentford will likely need more than a goal if they are to contain their rampant hosts.

City have scored 26 goals in their ten matches since winning the Club World Cup and, looking to bounce back after their frustrating draw, look sure to put at least a couple past the Bees.

Brentford have lost seven of their 11 league away games this term, failed to keep a clean sheet in all but one of their last 14 Premier League matches and conceded four to Liverpool on Saturday, looking vulnerable throughout, suggesting they will struggle in Manchester on Tuesday.
