Kevin De Bruyne was at his brilliant best for Man City’s second goal against Brentford as the Premier League champions now lead 2-1.
The Manchester club fell behind after 21 minutes when a long ball from Mark Flkken went all the way through to Neal Maupay to score but Pep Guardiola’s team equalised just before the halftime whistle when a cross from De Bruyne was not dealt with by Ethan Pinnock and that led to Phil Foden showing composure in the box before finishing to make it 1-1.
The Englishman also netted the second and although it was a tough header, the goal was made by De Bruyne who produced a sensational ball into the Brentford box.
