Football Whispers Predictions for Man City vs Brentford

Manchester City's final game before the break for the World Cup arrives at home against Brentford in the Premier League. Erling Haaland should make his return to the starting eleven after featuring on the bench in City's midweek League Cup win over Chelsea and with Norway not making it to Qatar, Haaland will be giving it his all on Saturday and we know what that usually means.

Man City & Over 3.5 Goals

Man City have won four of their last six meetings with Brentford and we're backing the hoss to secure all 3pts this weekend as well. However, a simple bet on City to win won't yield you much of a return so we have added over 3.5 goals into the mix as well. City have claimed two 3-1 victories in their last six matches, while Brentford have seen two of their last three outings in the Premier League produce exactly 4-goals.

Erling Haaland to Score First

Haaland is a shoo-in for the Golden Boot award in the Premier League this season, providing he avoids a long-term injury, and we're backing the young Norwegian star to add to his 18 Premier League goals on Saturday against Brentford. Haaland has netted 9-goals in his last 9 games in all competitions for Man City and now that he is back from injury, we're backing the lanky speedster to score the first goal of the game against the Bees.

Man City vs Brentford – Key Stats & Figures

Man City backed to beat Brentford

Man City only just managed to beat Fulham at the Etihad last time out, needing a last-gasp penalty from Haaland to save the day. Alvarez, who started ahead of Haaland, opened the scoring for City in the 16th-minute and most thought it would be plain sailing for the hosts from that point on. However, Cancelo got himself sent-off and gave away a penalty in the process which Pereira scored to make it 1-1 in the 28th-minute. The second half proved to be tight and tense and eventually, Guardiola was forced to bring Haaland off the bench in an attempt to win the game, and it worked. City were awarded a spot kick of their own deep into stoppage-time which Haaland converted to secure all 3pts.

Man City Predicted lineup – Ederson, Laporte, Aké, Stones, Dias, Gündoğan, De Bruyne, Foden, Silva, Rodri & Haaland

Brentford were away at Nottingham Forest for their last league game, falling behind in the 20th-minute but managed to equalise before the break through a Mbeumo penalty. Brentford pushed forward in search of a potential winning goal and appeared to have scored it in the 75th-minute via Wisssa but the hosts equalised via an own goal from Jorgensen to make the final scoreline 2-2.

Brentford Predicted lineup – Raya, Mee, Henry, Rasmussen, Pinnock, Dasilva, Jensen, Janelt, Wissa, Mbeumo & Toney
