Brentford vs Man City - Premier League: TV channel, team news, lineups and prediction

  • Brentford host Man City on Monday night
  • The Bees did the double over the treble winners last season
  • No team has beaten City in three consecutive games since 2016


Brentford welcome reigning Premier League champions Manchester City to their slice of Hounslow on Monday night.

The Bees are embroiled in a desperately difficult run of fixtures. A spirited 3-2 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night was the first of six games against five of the division's current top six in little more than a month, including two meetings with City in as many weeks.

Thomas Frank's side limp into this ominous stretch in wretched form. Brentford's only respite in a sequence of six losses from seven league games was a 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest inspired by Ivan Toney's long-awaited return.

City, by comparison, are cranking into the relentless fifth gear that has taken them to the last three league titles. Since a shock 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace in mid-December, City have won their subsequent eight matches across all competitions.

Here's everything you need to know about Monday's intriguing matchup.

Brentford vs Man City score prediction

Brentford were the only team to defeat Guardiola's treble winners home and away last term. Yet, despite their recent success in this fixture, Frank was adamant that any game against City must be considered "the biggest challenge in the world".

Going to Brentford is not particularly straightforward. After escaping with a narrow 1-0 win in November, Arsenal manager (and former City assistant) Mikel Arteta insisted: "You can't have a fluent game here," praising the hosts' unrivalled capacity to disrupt.

Nevertheless, boasting a fully fit squad and ample preparation time, City should banish the memories of last season's losses with a win on Monday.

Prediction: Brentford 1-3 Man City
