Man City vs Brentford Premier League Match Result February 2024

Erling Haaland put any doubts about his scoring ability to rest by scoring Manchester City's lone goal in a 1-0 triumph over Brentford, propelling them into second place in the Premier League standings, just one point behind leaders Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola's side, undefeated in their last 10 league games and now level in matches played with title contenders Liverpool and Arsenal, sit on 56 points, narrowly ahead of Arsenal by one point. Brentford, meanwhile, find themselves five points clear of the relegation zone in 14th position.

Haaland, who had shown signs of frustration three days earlier by pushing a camera after missing a career-high nine shots in a 1-1 draw with Chelsea, showcased his resurgence by increasing his league goal tally to 17.

The Norwegian sensation broke the deadlock in the 71st minute, racing onto a superb through ball from Julian Alvarez before calmly slotting it past a slipping Kristoffer Ajer and goalkeeper Mark Flekken. Haaland has now scored against every Premier League opponent he has encountered, with Luton Town yet to face him.
