Manchester City will look to extend their lead at the top of the table and add to their winning run when they face Brentford in the Premier League tonight.
The Premier League leaders defeated Leicester 6-3 in a Boxing Day thriller last time out and victory at the Brentford Community Stadium would make it 10 wins a row for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Thomas Frank’s side, who saw two matches postponed this month due to Covid-19, are dealing with a lengthy injury list as they prepare to face City for the first time since 1997.
Here’s all you need to know before the match tonight.
