Man City vs Brentford: The Match between Man City and Brentford is taking place on February 10 at 1:30 AM Nepali time.
When Brentford visits the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening, Manchester City will be looking to get back on track in the Premier League.
The incumbent champions advanced in the FA Cup with a 4-1 win against Fulham at the weekend, but the Bees were defeated by Everton by the same scoreline.
Riyad Mahrez returned from the Africa Cup of Nations with a bang, despite Algeria’s continental heartbreak. The former Leicester City striker was in fine form to assist Pep Guardiola’s side in the convincing defeat of Fulham in the FA Cup.
Following goals from Ilkay Gundogan and John Stones in the first half, Mahrez scored twice after the break, forcing Man City to come from behind on their own ground after Liverpool target Fabio Carvalho broke the deadlock after just four minutes.
Visiting Peterborough United will face Man City in the fifth round as they attempt to keep their historic treble chances alive, albeit a 1-1 draw against Southampton before the international break has made the title battle more competitive.
Guardiola’s team currently leads Liverpool by nine points at the top of the league, but the Reds do have a game in hand on the reigning champions, so a couple of poor performances for Man City in the coming weeks may throw the title race wide open.
City, on the other hand, will not expect to falter at the Etihad, since their 4-1 win over Fulham was their ninth home win in a row in all competitions, including six Premier League victories in a row.
Brentford’s impressive start to their first-ever Premier League season has since been overshadowed by a run of red, and their fortunes did not improve in the FA Cup against a Frank Lampard-managed Everton side.
Brentford was eliminated in the fourth round with a whimper, thanks to goals from Yerry Mina, Mason Holgate, Richarlison, and Andros Townsend. The focus now shifts to trying to break a concerning losing streak in the Premier League before the possibility of a relegation dogfight arises.
Brentford’s 4-1 loss against Everton was their fifth in a row in all competitions, and they’ve also lost each of their past four in the Premier League, leaving Thomas Frank’s team in 14th place in the table, eight points clear of the dotted line. Man City vs Brentford
Brentford’s away performances have been incredibly difficult to come by in recent months, with the Bees now winless in seven Premier League away games, losing five of them while allowing a massive 19 goals.
When Man City visited the Brentford Community Stadium in December, they only managed a 1-0 victory, but the visiting fans may be fearful of their team being sliced open at will by the merciless leaders in midweek. Man City vs Brentford
