Manchester City kept pace with league leaders, Liverpool after a 1-0 triumph over Brentford at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday, February 20.


The Cityzens were made to wait as Erling Haaland broke the deadlock in the 71st minute to hand Pep Guardiola’s side all three points against Bees.


After a frustrating display against Chelsea, the Danish striker was back on the scoresheet as he capitalised on a mistake from Krisstofer Ajer, who slipped at the vital moment, allowing him through on goal.


The victory took City above Arsenal into second spot and one point behind the leaders who they are yet to play at Anfield on March 10.


For Brentford, with six points from their last 11 games, they are only five points off the relegation zone and still searching for the sustained improvement that will get them away from trouble.
