The Man City vs Brentford live stream sees second-place Man City host underdogs Brentford at the Etihad, with the visitors winless in four games — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
After being reduced to ten men, Man City needed a last-minute penalty, and the return of Erling Haaland, to beat Fulham last week. Given Brentford’s recent form, Pep Guardiola will be confident his side will do better this time out, even after exerting themselves against Chelsea on Wednesday. Man City have bounced back from their only defeat this season (against Liverpool at Anfield) with three straight league wins and despite Arsenal sitting top, they remain many people’s team to beat this season. Despite his red card, star fullback Joao Cancelo will return after serving his suspension against Chelsea in midweek an important detail with Kyle Walker still out injured. Man City players will be keen to sign off before the World Cup with a win.
Thomas Frank will be determined to end a run of four games without a victory, but this might perhaps not be the fixture to arrest that slump with Man City undefeated at home since February. Having said that, the Bees are currently 11th — six points from the drop zone and will no doubt be happy with the league table heading into the World Cup break, even if they don’t win at the Etihad. Brentford will garner some hope from the return of leading goalscorer Ivan Toney who was suspended last time out, but just as the squad gains a body it loses another with defender Kristoffer Ajer now injured until after Christmas. Last season, Brentford lost twice to Pep's Man City, failing to score home or away but desperate to end this half of a disjointed season on a high note, they will give it all they’ve got.
With both teams involved in added time goals last weekend, this will a game where every minute counts as both aim to welcome in the World Cup in style. The Man City vs Brentford live stream will be worth savoring.
