Good evening and welcome to live coverage of Brentford’s final game of 2021, as they welcome Manchester City to TW8.
The Bees arrive back on home soil for their first league game since December 10. Since then, defeats against Chelsea and Brighton have occurred, the latter of which was away at the AMEX on Boxing Day ending in a 2-0 loss.
Their opponents have only won their past 11 league games in a row, and it will take some stopping Pep Guardiola’s side if Thomas Frank are to take anything from this game.
Brentford also have a very depleted squad, with the likes of Kristoffer Ajer, David Raya, Charlie Goode, Zanka, Christian Norgaard, Vitaly Janelt and Bryan Mbeumo all missing through injury, COVID and suspension.
Football.London Brentford reporter Uzzi Majid will be providing key updates as they come in.
