Premier League – Brentford-Manchester City 1-3: Foden show, Guardiola is -2 behind Liverpool

Another victory, another comeback victory. Manchester City makes no mistake, they continue their 2024 of only successes and are getting closer than ever to the top of the Premier League. The bête noire Brentford, winning twice out of two last season, is finally tamed: it ends 3-1 for Pep Guardiola’s team, who sweeps away the usual ghosts in red and white stripes (initial advantage for Maupay) with a spectacular hat-trick from Phil Foden. For the fourth time in a row, City wins away in the Premier League by recovering from a disadvantage. But above all, this evening’s success is a success, which definitively and officially brings Haaland and his teammates back to a position of favoritism in the standings: Arsenal tied to second place, Liverpool at the top just two points away. All with one game less. Rivals be warned.

The social moment

‘What a player’: Alan Shearer also praises Phil Foden.

The best

Phil FODEN. His hat-trick avoids trouble and allows City to send Maupay’s lead back to the sender. Fundamental.

The worst

Ethan PINNOCK. He provides Foden with the assist for the equalizer, his opponent loses his lead on the occasion of the second goal and even on the occasion of the trio he is mocked by the duet with Haaland. Bad evening.
