EPL MATCHDAY 24 PREVIEW: Manchester City vs Brentford

4 more matches are set to go down today as we progress in Matchday 24 of the EPL.

Manchester City host Brentford, Crystal Palace pay a visit to Norwich City, Tottenham Hotspur welcome Southampton, and Leeds United journey to Vila park to take on Aston Villa.

Some pretty interesting games, but our pick for today will be the game involving the Citizens and the Bees.

2 teams with an opposite run of games.

While one will be seeking to maintain its own, the other will be looking to put an end to its.

What are the possibilities of them achieving these?

Let’s get our answers as we head straight to the preview of the game.

EPL (MANCHESTER CITY):

Impressive Run Of EPL Games: Certainly not going unnoticed.

Pep Guardiola’s men are currently unbeaten in their last 13 EPL games.

Out of the 13, they’ve only drawn 1 which was the last game against Southampton.

We all know this is the City you don’t want to go around messing with especially when you’re not in good form.

Let’s not also forget that the Citizens will be looking to get back to winning ways.

A huge problem for the Bees, isn’t it?

EPL Title Grip: Another huge motivation Pep Guardiola and his men will want to feed on.

Sitting 9 points at the top of the table having played a game more than 2nd placed Liverpool, you can bet the Citizens will want to keep that distance knowing fully well that’s their only sure pass to claiming the trophy.

And how best can they achieve the above if not by getting a win today.

Home Advantage: One more fact in favor of Pep Guardiola’s men.

Having amassed a whopping 28 points out of a possible 33, you will want to agree with me that the Etihad Stadium is more of a fortress for the Citizens.

We’ve seen teams come here and fail, even European Champions, Chelsea, could do nothing about this.

Don’t you think, the Citizens claiming a win here is close to assured?

Well, think about the facts above as we look at facts pertaining to Brentford.

EPL (BRENTFORD):

Poor Run Of EPL Games: In all honesty, getting a fact that favors the Bees currently seems very hard.

However, I believe this should.

Yes, I know you’re surprised by my above statement. Why don’t we check it out together?

Thomas Frank’s men are currently on 4 matches losing streak in the EPL, and 5 in all competitions.

However, there’s this saying that goes thus “Whoever is down fears no fall”.

With Brentford having nothing to lose if they lose, and all to gain if they win, don’t you think that’s enough motivation to come out and get a win today?

You can bet even the mighty Pep Guardiola knows what is at stake and will be on his toes presently.

CONCLUSION:

From the facts gathered above, placing your bet on Manchester City looks nothing short of safe.

However, not even the strongest of Cities will take lightly an angry swarm of determined Bees, else they will get stung badly.

Hmm, are you going all in for the Citizens, or you are open to surprises as well?

Let’s get your predictions and opinions in the comment section.

Don’t also forget, the 2nd World Club Cup Semifinal between Chelsea and Al Hilal takes place today by 5 PM.

Let’s enjoy the show, shall we?
