GALLERY: Mahrez and De Bruyne sting the Bees

The best images from City’s hard-fought Premier League win over Brentford…

Goals from Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne were enough to earn City a 2-0 win at the Etihad Stadium, moving us 12 points clear at the top of the table.

Pep Guardiola’s men dominated possession from the get-go, but the Bees’ disciplined defensive shape meant genuine sights of goal were at a premium.


However, the pressure eventually told on the stroke of half-time when Raheem Sterling was bundled down inside the area by Mads Roerslev, with Riyad Mahrez making no mistake from the spot.

And number two followed with 20 to play as Kevin De Bruyne tapped home after Sterling had pounced on a loose pass from Brentford stopper David Raya.

It was just rewards for another hugely impressive display from City, who extended our unbeaten run to 11 matches in all competitions in the process.
