Team News and Predicted Lineups for Man City vs Brentford


Erling Haaland remains an injury doubt for Manchester City’s home game against Brentford, in their last game before the Premier League pause for the World Cup.

Haaland missed City’s win over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, with Pep Guardiola revealing he was still not over his foot injury, forcing him to miss two games.

Haaland had returned to score the winner against Fulham in City’s previous game, while the Premier League champions kept pace with Arsenal and extended their winning run at home.

Brentford, meanwhile, are winless in five and have scored nine goals in their last three games away from home. Thomas Frank’s team was knocked out of the Caraboa Cup by Gillingham on Tuesday.
