Manchester City’s players beat Brentford 1-0 in round 20. Premier League circuit.
The reigning champions have thus further escaped Chelsea in the table, who are now eight points adrift.
The only goal of the match came from Phil Foden in the 16th minute.
He put the ball nicely into the net after Kevin De Bruyne’s shot.
City failed to secure victory in time, in the final through Laporte scored with a header, but it was canceled out after reviewing VAR technology.
Brentford couldn’t create a real chance for a goal, and in fact he missed the best in the early stages of the game when Visa threatened.
Franco’s players can be pleased with how they stand in the table, as they enter the new year with 20 points and are nine points clear of the danger zone, with Burnley having a few games less.
City next play Arsenal on 1 January, while Brentford will welcome Aston Villa a day later.
