Brentford host Manchester City in the Premier League on Wednesday night in the first meeting between the clubs this millennium.

City are one of only two Premier League teams that have not yet had a match postponed this season, plowing through the festive calendar with an attacking ruthlessness that has seen them rattle in 17 goals in their last three matches.

Brentford have only scored 21 Premier League goals all season. The Bees had 12 days between games in mid-December, but the City visit will be a third game in seven days for a side full of injuries and absences.

Bryan Mbeumo limped off during the first half of Brentford’s 2-0 loss to Brighton on Monday, joining a number of players already living in Bee’s treatment room.

First goalkeeper David Raya and the club’s record arrival Kristoffer Ajer will have their long-term absence extended for at least one more match. Mads Roerslev may very well be available after recovering from Covid-19 but will probably not be involved from the start while Vitaly Janelt recently tested positive, which excludes him completely.

Rico Henry missed his first league game of the season on Sunday with a tight hoarding that will put him out in the middle of the week. Defense colleague Charlie Goode is also hampered by a strain in the same area.

Christian Norgaard’s suspension on a yellow card match is the cherry on top of an unfortunate cake.

Despite their uninterrupted workload, City have largely been spared from a host of injuries. Although Rodri represents the biggest loss from the base in midfield.

John Stones and Kyle Walker also missed Sunday’s 6-3 win over Leicester City but the squad is deep enough for Aymeric Laporte and Joao Cancelo respectively to fill in.

You can read Man City’s expected line-up here.

The last of Brentford and Manchester City’s 13 meetings came in 1997, an FA Cup match that Wednesday’s visitors won. The last time the pair met in a league match was George VI, King of England – Brentford claimed the booty at that time in March 1951.

Their last summit also took place around the Christmas weekend when the duo went out on Christmas Day 1937 and again 48 hours later – Brentford won both.

Thomas Frank’s brave promotion winner bled Liverpool’s nose and created far better chances than Chelsea in their previous meetings with the division’s elite, but welcomes the table tops far from full strength.

Brentford’s 48-year-old coach briefly laid out the likely playing field for Wednesday.

“Play against teams that are better than you, you have to defend very well and nail that low block. Then you have to counter,” Frank explained before summarizing with a totally subversive conclusion.

“We usually do well in the low block but we meet the best team in the world against the low block.”

While Brentford will hardly wave the white flag, City enter the competition as favorites – as they would against most teams on the continent, let alone the division’s lowest wage cost.

Prediction: Brentford 0-2 Man City
