Brentford vs Man City

Man City defeated Brentford 1-0 at the Newcastle

Phil Foden marked his return to the Manchester City side by scoring the only goal as Pep Guardiola's men opened up an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League with a 1-0 win at Brentford.

Phil Foden struck the crucial blow on 16 minutes as he met Kevin De Bruyne's cross to tuck home from close range and survive a VAR review for offside.

Since his Premier League debut for Man City in September 2015, Kevin De Bruyne has provided 78 assists in the competition

Manchester City have won each of their last 10 Premier League games - the fourth time they've had a run of 10+ consecutive league wins under Pep Guardiola

No manager other than Pep Guardiola in the Premier League history has had more than two separate runs of 10+ wins.

Brentford have lost five home Premier League games this season; only Norwich (7) and Watford (6) have suffered more defeats on home soil 

Man City have won 20 of their last 23 away Premier League outings (D1 L2), including each of their last six in a row

The result means Brentford remain in 14th position on 20 points from their 18 games, while City head to Arsenal
