Brentford vs Man City Tips
Thomas Frank will be disappointed leaving Brighton suffering a 2-0 loss at the weekend, now seeing them taste defeat in four of their last eight Premier League matches. The Bee’s talisman, Ivan Toney, returned against Brighton and is a big bonus being back in the starting XI. Strike partner Bryan Mbeumo is a doubt, along with Rico Henry, both due to Injury. Norgaard will see this one out from the stands as he faces a one match ban.
A boxing day thriller saw Manchester City take all three points against Leicester in a 6-3 goal fest. Peps men have now scored seventeen times in their last three matches and will be looking to continue that vein of form on Wednesday night. Both Bernardo Silva and Ruben Dias are one booking away from serving a one match ban and therefore may not be risked here as they face Arsenal next match day.
Brentford vs Man City Odds
A builder that looks rock solid here could be the way to get the league leaders on side. The Citizens have won the first half in eight of their last nine Premier League matches, whilst scoring over one goal in all of those eight. They have also hit over three corners every single game this season, meaning this bet builder would have landed in eight of their last nine league matches. Even with some rotation expected, I expect a comfortable win here for Pep and his men who have won eleven of their last twelve in all competitions.
It could be a very long night for these Brentford players against a team as dominant as Man City, their relentless pressure and quality on the ball often leaves so many players chasing shadows for ninety minutes.
Christian Norgaard misses out here due to suspension meaning Onyeka is likely to start in central midfield. Onyeka has made the most fouls per ninenty for Brentford this season at a touch over three per game. With the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan in those central areas, its hard to not see him making any fouls. David Coote takes the whistle who has been loving the cards of late, dishing twenty-one yellows in his last four matches!
A combination of both of my selections produces a double figure longshot. Expecting a dominant performance from City and in such a free-scoring flow of late, there is a good chance they can win both halves. Increasing the corners helps to boost that price, with Man City still managing to register over five corners in all of their last fifteen matches.
The loss of Norgaard in central midfield, their highest tackler this season, will leave Onyeka with big boots to fill. City are going to have a huge amount of the ball here and it wouldn't surprise me to see frustration kick in giving Brentford's highest fouler a good chance of going into the book also.
