Bad day in office for Man City as they lose to Brentford

Brentford completed a stunning victory over Manchester City in their final game before the World Cup.

Ivan Toney scored injury-time winner after being snubbed by England for the World Cup as the PSL champions got stunned at the Etihad.

The deadly Ivan Toney scored twice, including an injury-time winner, to give Brentford a memorable 2-1 victory at Manchester City.

It has been decades since the Bees beat City away from home but they started brilliantly with two great chances inside the opening 10 minutes for Frank Onyeka and Ivan Toney.

The breakthrough came through a long free kick as Ben Mee won the initial ball and nodded it up to Toney in the box where Brentford’s captain headed the Bees in front.

The visitors then sat back and looked to defend their lead up to the break but Man City burst into life. They dominated possession and built momentum on the edge of the Brentford penalty area. Kevin De Bruyne then swung a corner into the path of Phil Foden who smashed City back level just before half-time.

An injury to Aymeric Laporte early in the second half meant that 10 minutes of stoppage time were added on at the end as City pushed for a late winner. Brentford kept the faith though and committed men up the pitch during a rapid counter-attack that saw Josh Dasilva feed Toney the ball and the striker calmly turned it home for a historic win.
