Man City vs Brentford team news
Erling Haaland remains a doubt despite playing half an hour and scoring against Fulham last weekend. If he is not a starter, Julián Álvarez will.
Phil Foden continues to be rejected for a starting spot and will be desperate to get involved early on before the World Cup. Joao Cancelo is available again after serving a one-match ban midweek. Kyle Walker remains out of the game.
Brentford continues to juggle a long list of injuries. Vitaly Janelt could return, otherwise Kristoffer Ajer, Pontus Jansson, Thomas Strakosha and Aaron Hickey will be out until after the World Cup.
Prediction Man City vs Brentford
Manchester City should have no problem sacking Brentford, just like they did in both meetings last season. Brentford are struggling to keep a clean sheet, and there is no tougher place to go than the Etihad.
