After Liverpool slipped up against Leicester, Manchester City can extend their lead over the Reds to nine points when they face Brentford tonight.

Liverpool lost 1-0 at Leicester and City are looking to end 2021 with their 10th straight Premier League win.

Brentford are out to claim another big scalp, having already beaten Arsenal 2-0 and held Liverpool to a 3-3 draw at home this season.

City, however, are on a nine-game winning streak in the league and have scored 17 goals in their previous three matches.

A 6-3 win over Leicester last time out came despite almost letting a four-goal lead slip, whereas Brentford fell to a 2-0 defeat at Brighton that could not be rescued with a late rally.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Brentford vs Man City is scheduled for an 8.15pm GMT kick-off on Wednesday, December 29, 2021.

Brentford Community Stadium will host the first Premier League meeting between the two teams.
