Leap of faith

Now Foden pings in a corner which is met by Laporte's header but the visitors manage to clear their lines.

Better from City.

8'

Action stations

City comes again and a teasing Haaland cross is just too high for Gundogan.

The way this game has started you feel a goal can';t be too far away.

It has been manic!

8'

Close

Now City break at pace.

Bees keeper Raya races out to intercept from Haaland and the ball lands at Gundogan's feet 30 yards.

The crowd urge Gundo to go for the goal but he gets his execution wrong.

Blimey, what a start!

7'

Special tribute

6'

Ederson again

Another brilliant Ederson save, this time to deny Toney after the striker had been set up by Mbeumo's inside pass.

City on the back foot at the moment

4'

Head boy

The Bees look to mount another attack before Laporte heads a Roerslev cross clear.

Time to refocus lads.

4'

Save

Out of nowhere Brentford break at pace and Ederson races out to block a goal bound shot from Onyeka who got behind Stones

Big wake up call; for City that.

Forward march

John Stones against lines up at right back with Laporte and Akanji in central defence.

City already dominating possession and territory.
