Man City subs (9): TBC

Thomas Frank’s injury picture remains unchanged from their 4-1 Premier League loss at home to Liverpool last weekend and he could stick with an unchanged team.

Man City vs Brentford prediction

Guardiola will be frustrated over dropping points at home to Chelsea and his side need a reaction to maintain momentum in the Premier League title race.

Brentford have picked up two wins in their last five league outings but they have not won away from home in all competitions since October.

Prediction: Man City 3-1 Brentford
