Ivan Toney has scored 2 goals in 2 games since his return

The dynamic striker Ivan Toney has established himself as a goal-scoring juggernaut. Brentford’s seasons have benefited greatly from his skill in front of goal. Toney is a fine player for the Bees at the highest levels of football because of his deadly finishing touch, commanding physical presence and adaptability.

Julian Alvarez: Manchester City

Julian Álvarez has a solid reputation for being quick, accurate with his finishing and versatile in attacking positions. He has been pivotal for Man City since Haaland’s injury last year. In the last game as well, he scored a brace in first half. He is an invaluable member of Manchester City due to his remarkable talent and ability to score major goals.

Match facts

  • In the EPL last season, Brentford were the only team to defeat Manchester City twice, one of just four teams to defeat them overall.
  • Brentford have lost six of their past seven Premier League matches but Ivan Toney has scored in each of his last four Premier League home appearances. 
  • The goal for the Bees is to become the first team since Liverpool in 2015 and 2016 to defeat City three times in a row.

Injury and team news

Brentford faces injury concerns with Schade, Hickey, Mbeumo, and Henry sidelined. The return dates for Schade and Hickey are unknown; Mbeumo is anticipated to return in March, and Henry plans to return at the end of the season.
