Manchester City may currently sit second in the Premier League table, but that status may not last for too much longer. Man City heads to Brentford FC Monday night with a fully fit squad, so you know what means.
City are about to go back to the imperial dominance form that we’ve come to know in recent years. Erling Haaland is back, and he’ll start banging in the goals, at will, soon enough.

Liverpool and Arsenal really need to look out, because for my money, City is still the title front-runner. Winners of the last two and four of the last five, the league title is still there’s to lose.
Look out rest of the league…starting with the Bees (who have certainly lost their string this season) of Brentford on Monday Night Football.
