Man City recently came from a win against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup, getting their 16th home game victory. As for Brentford, they are having a hard time this season, and are just thankful to have a break to compose themselves. Nine of the 15 matches played by these two teams were won by Man City, while five of there were won by Brentford. Last season, Man City recorded two victories against Brentford. However, they never won three consecutive matches against Brentford in the contest. As for the visitors, they are one of the only four teams who have not scored victory on the road.

Home matches are the favorites of Man City as they are currently unbeaten in their turf for 16 consecutive games already since April. From then, they were able to score 61 goals, which means they have no problem in their attacks. In the Premier League, this will be their fourth successive home match, which may be their advantage. On their last eight matches here, they won seven of those, but they are still in need of more points if they are aiming to get the top spot. Currently, they are two points behind the top team, so they need maximum points if they want to steal the top spot.

Good news for Man City as Kalvin Phillips returned for his squad, as he was out for them since September. However, Kyle Walker remains unavailable for Man City, but his recovery is getting near. Joao Cancelo also returns for the hosts after serving his one-game suspension.

This squad on the other hand just came from a devastating exit in the EFL Cup, most especially that it happened on their home. On their last nine matches, this team disappointingly won only once. Now, due to their continuous disappointments in the contest, they dropped in the 11th spot, with only three wins across their names. As the top flight will have a break for six weeks, they are hoping to at least head into the break with a victory. Moreover, this team also wants to finally get their first road win against Man City. However, it is not easy for them as they will be against the defending champions.

Vitaly Janelt, who encounters some muscle issues, and Shandon Baptiste, who has adductor issues are both doubtful in this game. Thomas Strakosha, Aaron Hickey, Kristoffer Ajer, and Charlie Goode, are all nursing their injuries and will not be in action in this match. Their captain, Pontus Jansson is also ruled out in this game, following his thigh complains.
