Brentford vs Man City Match Preview and Predicted Lineups
The first-ever encounter between Brentford and Man City is expected to generate a lot of debate before, during and after the game.
How these teams will fare against each other will depend on form, organization and selected starting eleven on matchday. The visitors are currently top of the table with 47 points in 19 games and so, we expect Pep Guardiola to field his best side to end the year on a high. So, let’s see how Manchester City will likely lineup for this game.
Manchester City predicted lineup: Ederson, Jao Cancelo, Dias, Ake, Zinchenko, De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Foden, Grealish and Jesus.
On the flipside, Brentford has slipped in recent games after a fairy start to the 2022/22 campaign. The promoted side has been plagued with inconsistencies in recent games. However, a good scoring form on home soil, only failing to score in one of their last six matches should give head coach, Thomas Frank, some hope in this important match.
Brentford predicted lineup: Fernandez, Pinnock, Jansson, Sorensen, Thompson, Onyeka, Jensen, Baptiste, Canos, Toney and Wissa.
It’s been a great start to life in the Premier League for Brentford and their fans. There wouldn’t be a Christmas present much better than a home win over the Premier League champions and current leaders Manchester City.
