Brentford vs Manchester City Preview:

The Premier League champions travel to the Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday to play their final Premier League match of their campaign. The hosts Brentford came down from a 1-0 deficit to hammer Tottenham Hotspur’s Europe ambitions by winning 3-1. Ivan Toney’s eight-month ban potentially threatened Brentford’s attacking output, however, the form of Bryan Mbuemo and Wissa says otherwise. A top-half finish at least at 9th is confirmed for the Bees, however, Thomas Frank’s side still have a slight glimmer of hope for European football. If Aston Villa and Totten Hotspur both drop points on the final day and Brentford get 3, they’ll qualify for Europa Conference League qualification at 7th – who particularly have a better goal difference as compared to them as well. For this, the Bees will have to replicate their performance in the reverse fixture at the Etihad, where they emerged victorious by 2-1. Thomas Frank’s side have won 4 out of their last 5 matches – the only defeat in this spell coming against Liverpool at Anfield. They also have one of the best home records in the division, with only Arsenal and Newcastle having won at the Gtech Community Stadium – which bodes well ahead of welcoming the champions’ part bus.

Manchester City meanwhile looked hungover from their Premier League winning celebrations against Brighton, where De Zerbi’s men completely ran riot over the Cityzens. Enciso scored one of the goals of the season with a 30-yard – top corner strike after Phil Foden had opened the scoring for City. Treble-chasing Pep will have to get his side back on track after he jokingly claimed last weekend that his side had drunk all of the alcohol in Manchester, following their league coronation. Manchester City would likely put out a strong XI like they have historically done on the final day ahead of any cup competition final. With the FA Cup and the Champions League final approaching, Guardiola would want to have rhythm in his side, and a win against the Bees would be ideal for the same. The Cityzens have the 2nd best away record in the division, having taken 37 points from 18 matches, and will seek revenge for the defeat in the reverse fixture as they look to increase their unbeaten run in all competitions to 26.
