Manchester City’s coach Pep Guardiola made several important changes in his lineup for the next game of the Citizen in the Premier League against Ivan Toney's Brentford in the Etihad Stadium, especially important for the locals after having achieved only a point against Chelsea last weekend.

Manchester City to make this acquisition to continue their global domination

The Citizens, who lost the advantage they had against Liverpool and Arsenal, need now to add three points to their season in order to keep on fighting for the Premier League title, which they will do with a new attack set by their manager Pep Guardiola for the clash against the Bees.

The Catalan manager didn’t hesitate on insisting placing Julian Alvarez in his starting XI after defending the Argentine striker from the critics claiming that he had played a bad game against Chelsea, but he corrected some mistakes and added more ball control in the midfield with the presence of Bernardo and Foden playing alongside Rodri and Manuel Akanji.

On the contrary, the former FC Barcelona boss left two top stars on the bench following the Citizen’s catastrophic first half against Chelsea, and Oscar Bobb was included in a forward line that was led by Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland.

What players were benched by Guardiola against Brentford?

Guardiola opted for benching De Bruyne and Jeremy Doku for the game against Ivan Toney's side, while Jack Grealish and Josko Gvardiol were absent from the squad due to injury and their presence is uncertain for the Citizen’s away game of the weekend against Bournemouth.
