MOTM: Phil Foden.

Jérémy Doku is averaging more touches inside the opposition box per 90 and more take-ons completed per 90 than any other player in Europe’s big five leagues this season.

Brentford have dropped 26 points from leading positions in the Premier League this season, more than any other side and more than they gave away in their previous two campaigns combined (23).

Erling Haaland hasn’t scored a Premier League goal since November 2023, though he has been injured in this spell:

  • 4 games
  • 0 goals
  • 2 assists
  • 5 games missed through injury

Brentford have taken just three points from their last eight Premier League games (W1 L7), after picking up 13 from their previous eight (W4 D1 L3).

Mark Flekken’s 9 saves in the first half tonight is the most in a single half since records began in the Premier League. The most saves in an entire match so far this season is (10) James Trafford.

Brentford failed to keep a clean sheet for the 19th time in 22 league matches played this season. Manchester City are on a 5-match winning run, and have won 4 of the 8 league matches where they conceded the first goal.

Only 8 goalkeepers have made more saves in a single game than Mark Flekken (12) tonight. Only 2 goalkeepers, Paulo Gazzaniga (for Spurs vs. Liverpool in 2019) and Edwin van der Sar (for Fulham vs. Arsenal in 2003) have equalled his tally.

Erling Haaland has registered his first direct goal involvement since returning from injury. His last goal contribution came on December 3rd, when he assisted against Spurs in Manchester City’s 3-3 draw.

Mark Flekken is the first goalkeeper to provide an assist in the Premier League this season. Indeed, two of the last four instances of a keeper assisting in the competition have come against Manchester City (also Alisson for Liverpool in October 2022).
