Brentford are aiming to do the double over Manchester City as both teams square off in their final Premier League fixture of the season. There is little at stake here and with the pressure off, an open, end-to-end encounter could be on the cards on Sunday.
Brentford are coming off an impressive 3-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in their previous Premier League fixture. They fought back from a goal down with Bryan Mbeumo netting a brace while Yoane Wissa added the third.
That result is an extension of Brentford’s recent good form as they have won four of their last five Premier League matches. Sitting two points off the Europa Conference League places, Sunday’s clash is not exactly a dead rubber as they could sneak in a European qualification if results go their way.
While Brentford have undoubtedly been in good form lately, their defence remains suspect, particularly at the Gtech Community Stadium. Thomas Frank’s men have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven home matches.
Manchester City travel to Brentford off the back of a 1-1 draw with Brighton in a rescheduled Premier League fixture on Wednesday. Phil Foden struck the opener midway through the first half but they were pegged back seven minutes before the break.
