Confirmed Match Officials: Manchester City vs Brentford (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Darren England will take charge of Manchester City’s Premier League clash with Brentford on Tuesday evening.

Manchester City will be looking to bounce back from Saturday’s frustrating draw with Chelsea and move to within one point of league leaders Liverpool with a win over Brentford at the Etihad Stadium in midweek.

Rodri cancelled out Raheem Sterling’s first-half goal for Chelsea last weekend, as City lost ground to both Liverpool and Arsenal in the Premier League title race with a 1-1 draw against Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Brentford were battered 4-1 at home to Liverpool on Saturday, with Thomas Frank’s side only six points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Manchester City.

The Sky Blues beat the Bees in the reverse fixture recently, coming from behind to win 1-3 at the Gtech Community Stadium courtesy of Phil Foden’s sublime hat-trick.

Manchester City did lose to Brentford at the Etihad Stadium last season though, with an Ivan Toney brace inflicting a surprise defeat in November 2022.
