Kick Off!

And so it begins!

Starting XI

City have brought in Ederson, Cancelo, Stones, Akanji De Bruyne, Silva, Foden and the main man, Erling Haaland, for today’s clash at the Etihad – which is the Norwegian striker’s first start in the Premier League since October 22.

As for Brentford, the Bees haven’t won any of their last four matches but remain nicely placed in the league table, sitting in eleventh.

Last weekend the London club had their own last-minute drama as they were denied a win over Nottingham Forest due to an own goal. That will be seen as a blow by manager Thomas Frank but could make a big statement by getting a result today at the Etihad. The Danish coach has made three changes from the Forest draw with Zanka, Onyeka and the Bees’ top scorer, Ivan Toney, returning for the away side.
