First Goalscorer Kevin De Bruyne 13/2 with William Hill

A midweek League Cup victory over Chelsea saw City stretch to four straight victories in all competitions. In the Premier League, they needed a late penalty from Erling Haaland to defeat Fulham having played around 65 minutes with ten men following the dismissal of Joao Cancelo.

The defending champions are two points behind Arsenal and will go top (temporarily) here with a victory. Their home form has been excellent this campaign with seven played and seven won six of these going over 3.5 goals.

Brentford were also in midweek action and they found themselves going out of the League Cup to Gillingham on penalties. It continues a poor run of form that has seen them go winless in five and just one victory in nine.

The Bees are down to 11th in the table and will be looking for a morale boosing result ahead of the break. On the road, they have struggled this campaign playing seven league games losing four of them and failing to win any.

Manchester City vs Brentford: Match Stats

Six of seven at the Etihad in the Premier League this season have seen Man City win and gone over 3.5 goals. City are capable of grabbing four goals themselves while Brentford are also capable of netting. Backing a home victory and this fixture to have over 3.5 goals looks the play.

With fitness doubts over Erling Haaland then some of the player markets look tricky to predict. One price that caught the eye is the 5/2 on Manuel Akanji to register 1+ shot on target. The City defender hit three shots against Fulham and while only one of those hit the target it would be enough to have collected.
