Preview

City cruised into a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup with a comfortable 4-1 win over Fulham at the Etihad Stadium.

Notably, a super fast brace from Riyad Mahrez on his first appearance since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations secured a comfortable victory over the Cottagers.

For Brentford, they lost in the cup vs a new Everton side, 4-1. Don’t let that fool you, they still pose a threat with their fast players and anything can happen here. It should be a fun tactical match up between Pep and Thomas Frank.

Which team will come out in front?

Team News

Pep Guardiola’s side have Gabriel Jesus and Cole Palmer out. Zinchenko is questionable.

For Brentford, Jeanvier, Jorgensen, Fosu and Wissa are out.

Prediction

Manchester City 2-1 Brentford
