Will it be another famous night under the lights at the Brentford Community Stadium?

This is the Bees’ first top-flight campaign for 74 years so to sit 14th, nine points clear of danger, at the half-way mark is more than satisfactory.

So far, Thomas Frank’s side have won three home games, first beating Arsenal to start the season and then overcoming Everton last month.

Their last home fixture 19 days ago, produced another night that no one in attendance will ever forget.

Despite falling behind to Watford, they eventually restored parity when Pontus Jansson bundled the ball over the line six minutes from time.

Then, in the sixth minute of added additional time, Saman Ghoddos was brought down and Bryan Mbeumo dispatched the subsequent spot-kick.

A Friday night to remember in West London as the roof came off the Premier League’s newest venue.

After that, Brentford had two games postponed, against Manchester United and Southampton, and have since returned with back-to-back loses.

Last Wednesday, they were dumped out the Carabao Cup at the quarter-final stage, going down 2-0 to neighbours Chelsea.

Then, on Boxing Day, they were beaten by the same scoreline by Brighton & Hove Albion, conceding two quick-fire first half goals in Sussex.

So, Frank’s team have only won two of their last ten league fixtures, but will satisfied with their current points tally of 20.

Now, they are looking to repeat what they achieved on both 25 December and then again two days later, back in 1937.

In the midst of time, they beat the reigning champions of England twice in three days, 2-0 away and then 2-1 at home, who were Manchester City.

Also, Brentford haven’t lost their last fixture of a calendar year since a 2-0 defeat to Colchester United in a League One game on New Years’ Eve 2005.

Extending that particular record will be a big ask so can Brentford spring a surprise?

Will Manchester City’s winning run continue?

Relentless Manchester City meanwhile are looking to continue their winning run.

On Boxing Day, the Citizens looked on course for another record-breaking victory when they went 4-0 up against Leicester after just 27 minutes.

Kevin De Bruyne and İlkay Gündoğan were both on target while Riyāḍ Maḥrez and Raheem Sterling also converted penalties.

However, by the 65th minute, the atmosphere at the Etihad had completely changed with the Foxes, out of nowhere, pulling it back to 4-3.

Nevertheless, an Aymeric Laporte header restored the two-goal cushion before Sterling bagged his second, wrapping up an extraordinary 6-3 success.

So, Pep Guardiola’s side remain six points clear of Liverpool and Chelsea, having won nine league games on the bounce.

In 2021, the champions have now scored 112 league goals and can break the English-top flight record in this, their last game of the calendar year.

Only Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers, both in 1960 peculiarly, have scored more, with 114 and 113 respectively.

Will the league-leaders win again?

Thomas Frank is missing some key players at the moment so his squad is very thin as a result.

This includes in goal where David Raya is a long-term absentee with fellow Spaniard Álvaro Fernández continuing to deputise.

At the back, they’re still without Kristoffer Ajer and Mathias Jørgensen but Ethan Pinnock is back after a spell on the sidelines.

So, the Jamaican international will continue in an unchanged back three, also comprised of Mads Bech Sørensen and captain Pontus Jansson.

At left-wing-back, Rico Henry is injured, meaning Dominic Thompson will continue to fill-in.

In the middle, Christian Nørgaard is suspended after receiving his fifth booking of the campaign at Brighton on Boxing Day.

So, Frank Onyeka is likely to come in alongside Shandon Baptiste and Mathias Jensen.

In attack, Ivan Toney will be their main goal threat; he returned on Sunday having missed their previous two fixtures due to Covid-19.

Can Toney fire the Bees to a memorable victory?

Pep Guardiola, in contrast, has a whole host of world class players to choose from so could rotate his starting XI.

Ederson will be hoping for a clean sheet here after conceding 3+ in a Premier League game for the first time since 27 September 2020 on Sunday.

At the back, Kyle Walker hasn’t been seen since being sent off against RB Leipzig, albeit this is due to an injury.

So, João Cancelo and Oleksandr Zinchenko will continue at full-back.

Rúben Dias and Aymeric Laporte are the first-choice centre-backs, although one of, or both, Nathan Aké or John Stones could be rotated in.

Rodri missed the weekend’s match due to a fitness concern so isn’t likely to be risked here either.

Fernandinho could therefore continue as the single-pivot with İlkay Gündoğan and Kevin De Bruyne, who both scored against Leicester, further forward.

Jack Grealish and Phil Foden were reprimanded last week after both turned up for training late following a big night out.

The pair were on the bench against Leicester and that’s likely to be the case here again.

So, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Riyāḍ Maḥrez could continue to make up the front three, with Gabriel Jesus the man missing out.

Maḥrez will join up with Algeria on 3 January as they look to retain their Africa Cup of Nations title, commencing against Sierra Leone eight days later.

Sterling meanwhile will be looking to score in five successive Premier League matches for the very first time.

18 year old Kayky was on the bench on Sunday and could make his debut for the club after arriving from Fluminense.

Will Manchester City just be too good again?
