Line-ups – Man City
Erling Haaland (£12.2m) starts the game. To the dismay of managers, the striker failed to start in Gameweek 15. Many within the community will be resting their captaincy hopes on the forward. Kevin De Bruyne (£12.6m) also starts the game. The Belgian will be hoping to continue his relentless FPL output.
Forward Ivan Toney (£7.4m) will be looking to make Gareth Southgate regret his decision to leave him out of the World Cup squad. The striker sits as the third highest scoring player in his position. Midfielder Yoane Wissa (£5.4m) makes the substitute bench after picking up a double-digit haul of 12 points in Gameweek 15.
- After a long ball out from the Brentford goalkeeper, centre back Ben Mee (£4.6m) rose high to nod the ball towards the six-yard box. That ball was headed into the goal by striker Ivan Toney. This put the visitors 1-0 up.
- Kevin De Bruyne stepped up to take the corner which was headed out by defender Manuel Akanji (£5m) and met with a stunning half volley by midfielder Phil Foden (£8.3m) to make it 1-1 just before half time.
