Manchester City return to Premier League action this week as they welcome Thomas Frank’s Brentford to the Etihad.
Phil Foden’s strike inside 20 minutes proved to be the difference in the reverse fixture as last season’s Championship play-off winner’s look to bounce back from a dismal 4-1 FA Cup defeat to Everton.
The Blues won by the same scoreline as they shook off an early scare to dispatch Marco Silva’s Fulham side in the fourth round last weekend.
Fabio Carvalho started City but Ilkay Gundogan was on hand to restore parity minutes later before John Stones and a Riyad Mahrez double saw off the challenge of the free-scoring Cottagers.
As Pep Guardiola’s men focus diverts back onto Premier League matters, despite their seemingly perilous position at the summit, Liverpool remain close with a game in hand nine points off.
