Premier League history could be made during Brentford vs Man City which has never happened before

Premier League history could be made during Brentford vs Man City which has never happened before

City and Brentford could make history.

A Premier League record could be broken on Monday night if Manchester City and Brentford have their shooting boots on.

City travel down to London to face Brentford looking to strengthen their position in the title race.

Arsenal's 3-1 win against Liverpool on Sunday helped City's cause, meaning Pep Guardiola's side will go a point clear at the top of the Premier League table if they win their two games in hand.

Brentford will be looking for a positive result to move themselves further away from the relegation zone, but both sides could end up entering the record books.

If four goals are scored at the Gtech Community Stadium, then a new record will be set for the most goals scored in a single Premier League game week.

Leandro Trossard's late strike against Liverpool on Sunday was the 41st of the weekend after nine matches.

The current record - set in September 2020 - stands at 44 goals in 10 games. That tally was equalled at the start of May last season.

Four goals are needed to create history, and given the recent form of the two teams, there's a great chance it'll happen.

Four of City's last five Premier League matches have involved four or more goals, while the reigning champions are the division's second highest scorers with 51 goals in 21 games.

Haaland has returned from injury (

Guardiola's side will be boosted by the recent returns from injury of Erling Haaland and Jeremy Doku, the former having scored 14 goals in 16 league outings this term.

Brentford have been far less prolific in front of goal this season, finding the back of the net on 31 occasions, but they have been involved in a few goal-fests recently.

The Bees have been involved in three consecutive five-goal thrillers, with a 3-2 win against Nottingham Forest sandwiched between defeats to Wolves in the FA Cup and Tottenham in the league by the same scoreline.

While the match itself is unlikely to go down as a classic, it could produce a piece of trivia that will feature on pub quizzes for years to come.
