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



| Last Updated:


Jarred Gillett will take charge of Manchester City’s Premier League meeting with Brentford on Monday evening.

Manchester City travel to the capital looking to extend their unbeaten run to 12 matches in all competitions, and with the chance to potentially pounce on the result of Liverpool’s visit to Arsenal, as the Premier League title race continues to heat up.

Julian Alvarez scored twice during Wednesday’s win over Burnley at the Etihad Stadium, as Kevin De Bruyne made his first start since August and Erling Haaland marked his return from a foot injury.

Pep Guardiola’s side suffered two defeats to Brentford last season however, with a 2-1 loss at the Etihad and a 1-0 defeat in May at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Brentford are currently just four points clear of the relegation zone and suffered a 3-2 loss to Tottenham in midweek, despite taking a 1-0 lead in north London.

Ivan Toney, who scored twice against City last season, has recently returned from an eight-month footballing ban, and will likely start against the Sky Blues on Monday.
