Man City vs Brentford: Prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results, odds - preview

Manchester City will hope to lay down a challenge to Premier League leaders Arsenal as they face Brentford in their final match before the World Cup today.

Erling Haaland is pushing to start after overcoming injury, but even his remarkable goal return has not prevented the Gunners from setting the pace at the top of the table, where City could return for a few hours at least with a win here.

Arsenal face Wolves in the final game on Saturday but the day begins at the Etihad as City welcome Thomas Frank & Co. Will there be a title twist before the season resumes in late December?

Here’s everything you need to know about today’s game.
