Brentford

Brentford experienced a disappointing EFL Cup exit to League Two team Gillingham on Tuesday night after giving up a 96th-minute equalizer to draw 2-2 away at Nottingham Forest in the Premier League last weekend. They have only won one of their past nine games overall - drop to 11th place in the league standings.

Prediction

Last season, Man City dominated both meetings with Brentford and came away with all three points. This weekend at the Etihad, the Citizens will be heavy favorites to repeat that feat.


Pick: Manchester City -2

Total:Over 3 Goals
