Pep Guardiola’s side are in ominous form heading into their visit to west London and will have been further buoyed by Arsenal's win over Liverpool on Sunday.
They have won their last four top-flight games in convincing fashion and have been boosted by the respective returns of Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland.
While Brentford beat City home and away last year, they have tasted victory just once in their last six games and have it all to do this evening.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Brentford vs Man City is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off tonight on Monday February 5, 2024.
The Gtech Community Stadium in west London will host the contest

Brentford vs Man City prediction
It would be a major surprise to see City slip up here given their recent form. The return of Haaland and De Bruyne's ever-improving fitness only makes the champions even more fearsome.
With Ivan Toney back, the Bees are capable of scoring against any side - especially a City team who have a knack of conceding - but they will have to be at their best at the back to stand any chance of avoiding defeat.
Man City to win, 3-1.
