Manchester City disposed of Brentford 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night in the Premier League.
Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne scored either side of halftime to put Man City on course for a comfortable win, extending Pep Guardiola's side's advantage over Liverpool to 12 points.
Man City took the lead just before the break when Riyad Mahrez converted a penalty after Mads Roerslev fouled Raheem Sterling in the area.
After a rebound from a Sterling attempt fell to him in the 69th minute, De Bruyne doubled the hosts' lead.
The rest of the game was a breeze for City, who might have easily extended their unbeaten run to 14 league games and extended their lead over second-placed Liverpool.
