Manchester City vs Brentford – Saturday 12:30pm
TV: BT Sport 1

Brentford (+2)

City look perplexed, and there’s a real sense now that they’re just trying to get to the World Cup without extending themselves.

What’s happening to Brentford when they’re beaten well is that they’re conceding goals in quick succession and their heads drop. This has happened in games that you’d expect them to take points in.

Playing City is a very different level of preparation and that drop in focus won’t happen.

Under 3.5 Goals

For all that City will keep the ball, they play very differently with Erling Haaland and Alvarez.

Shifting between the two takes a bit of time, as we’ve seen in their previous Premier League game. It should result in them looking rather lethargic in the final third as Haaland’s runs are totally different Alavarez’s, such is Pep’s love affair with switching build-up play on a near-weekly basis.

In terms of sustainable goalscoring metrics, penalties don’t count – and even with City’s games having just eight goals in the last four games, three of them have been from the spot.

Five open play goals in four games.

Ivan Toney to Score Anytime

Not enough people speak about this fella’s ability in front of goal. In just 100 games for the club, he netted 50 league goals. This is happening for a club that primarily play on the break and source a lot of their goals from set pieces.

At no other time this year will you get a goalscorer of his prowess to simply net.

Take these opportunities.

Erling Haaland to Have Three or More Shots on Target

Because why wouldn’t we?

City are more forceful when he’s playing, and given he came on his last game and he’s not going to the World Cup, you can be pretty sure he’ll be starting here, too.
