Premier League Shocker: MANCHESTER CITY 1-2 BRENTFORD

 MANCHESTER CITY 1-2 BRENTFORD: PEP GUARDIOLA'S SIDE LOSE TO BEES IN SHOCK PREMIER LEAGUE RESULT

Manchester City were beaten 2-1 by Brentford at the Etihad in the Premier League. Ivan Toney scored both goals as City signed off for the World Cup with a shock defeat. The results sees City stay in second place, two points adrift of Arsenal who play Wolves later on Saturday evening. Should Arsenal win, they will enter the World Cup break with a five-point gap at the top of the table.

Manchester City missed the chance to move to the Premier League summit as Pep Guardiola’s champions signed off ahead of the World Cup with a shock 2-1 loss against Brentford at Etihad Stadium.

The visitors made a bright start and deservedly took the lead on 16 minutes when Ivan Toney nodded home Ben Mee’s flick-on.

It was the Brentford forward’s 17th league goal of 2022 and a timely early reminder of his quality following his omission from England’s World Cup squad.


City improved as the half wore on and levelled seconds before the interval when Phil Foden lashed a rising shot beyond David Raya.

The home side dominated following the interval but found it difficult to break down a resilient visiting rearguard.

Toney looked like he had passed up the chance to secure a shock win when he could not squeeze a shot beyond Ederson but minutes later grabbed the winner.

The result sees City remain in second place, two points adrift of Arsenal who play Wolves later on Saturday evening.

Brentford are next in league action on Boxing Day when they entertain Tottenham. Man City return two days later at Leeds United.


PLAYER OF THE MATCH - BEN MEE (BRENTFORD)

It would be easy to pick Toney for his goal heroics. However, Mee was imperious at the back as the Bees did what so many could not, by keeping Erling Haaland quiet. Capped an excellent defensive display with an assist for Toney’s opener.
