Manchester City v Brentford: Match Preview & Odds

Manchester City play their game in hand in the Premier League this week as Brentford visit the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday evening. Man City lost ground in the title race at the weekend as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Chelsea. Three points on Tuesday would move Pep Guardiola’s side to within a point of leaders, Liverpool and here at we’re right on top of the fixture with the latest team news, match odds and free bet offers from our betting partners at Ladbrokes.


Manchester City’s 1-1 draw against Chelsea on Sunday ended a run of 11 consecutive wins in all competitions but has seen them extend their unbeaten run to 15 matches. Pep Guardiola’s side now have 53 points from 24 matches and remain unbeaten in all competitions at the Etihad Stadium this season.

Manchester City v Brentford: head-to-head

The reverse fixture at the Gtech Community Stadium was played just two weeks ago with Manchester City claiming a 3-1 win thanks to a Phil Foden hat-trick. Brentford completed a league double over Manchester City last season, including a 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium.

Betting tips

As well as firing a hat-trick when the two sides met earlier this month, Phil Foden was also on target in the corresponding fixture last season. Foden to score any time is priced at 13/8.

Foden’s Manchester City teammate, Erling Haaland missed a host of chances in the draw at Chelsea and we cannot see the Norwegian being quite so wasteful on Tuesday. Haaland has to be backed at 4/9 to score at any time. Alternatively, Haaland is priced at 11/5 to score first or 23/10 to score two or more.

Ivan Toney scored both goals in Brentford’s 2-1 win here last season and the 27-year-old remains Brentford’s main goal threat. Toney has scored four goals in five matches since returning from suspension and is a huge 14/5 to score at any time on Tuesday.

There has only been one clean sheet in Manchester City’s last five Premier League games whilst there has been just one clean sheet in the last ten matches involving Brentford in all competitions. Both teams to score or over 2.5 match goals are both worth real consideration at 20/21 or 4/11 respectively.

Manchester City: 2/11
