Man City vs Brentford team news
Ederson, Ruben Dias and Bernardo Silva are all expected to return to the starting lineup, having been on the bench for the FA Cup win over Fulham on the weekend.
Gabriel Jesus missed that game after picking up a knock while on international duty with Brazil, and the striker is once again a doubt.
Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa were absent for Brentford against Everton after testing positive for Covid and it’s uncertain whether they will recover in time.
Christian Eriksen has started training with his new team, but Thomas Frank is not sure when the midfielder will be ready to make his debut.
“He has been running a lot, training a lot, so he has done quite a lot over the last few months so his foundation is fine, but another thing is to get up to match speed,” Frank said.
“It is hard to say when he is available – I hope weeks, a few weeks, but I don’t know.”
Man City vs Brentford prediction
Brentford have performed impressively against a number of big teams already this season, and City only narrowly beat them 1-0 back in December.
But Pep Guardiola’s side have been almost impossible to stop in recent weeks and look set to continue their march to the Premier League title with another comfortable victory.
Man City to win, 3-0.
