Team Analysis
In the last round of the league, Manchester City secured a 3-1 victory over Burnley led by former captain Kompany, but Pep Guardiola was not particularly satisfied with the result. According to the meticulous tactical master, the team’s victory relied on the “individual abilities of the players” rather than controlling the game. Now, with Haaland returning from injury and De Bruyne back in top form, can Manchester City, in its “full form,” play the football that Pep desires? In the last round, Manchester City welcomed Haaland back, but unfortunately, the “Pudding Duo” did not share the field simultaneously. Guardiola chose to replace De Bruyne with Haaland, leaving many fans feeling regretful.

Fortunately, Haaland’s feeling on the field after returning from injury was still good. Although he did not score, his tactical focal point role was still very evident. With Haaland’s return, Manchester City no longer has to worry about the lack of attacking power. Additionally, after Haaland’s return, Ake also returned to training ahead of this round, completely clearing Manchester City’s injury list. It can be anticipated that with the return of key players, Guardiola will likely revert to his favored three-defender formation, allowing Cancelo, the flank dynamo, to attack freely. Moreover, with Haaland leading the attack, there is no longer a concern about the quality of crosses from Cancelo, as no one can outshine Haaland in finishing.

Odds Analysis
As for Brentford, they currently have 22 points, ranking 15th, just 4 points ahead of the relegation zone. Frank’s team has achieved two victories after entering January, coincidentally both with a 3-2 scoreline. Despite losing to Tottenham in the last round, they scored two goals against the North London powerhouse, showing enough resilience. Facing the mighty Citizens this time, can this little bee pose a threat to Manchester City? Brentford, after welcoming Coach Tony back, has also shaken off the previous forward struggles. In the two games since Tony’s return, Brentford defeated Nottingham Forest and nearly caused an upset against Tottenham. In these two games, Tony scored 2 goals, activating the previously dormant Mbeumo. With both forward players finding the net, Frank doesn’t need to worry too much about Vissa’s participation in the Africa Cup of Nations and Mbuemo’s injury.
