Manchester City   beat Brentford

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.

For his club, the Algerian international has now scored in seven consecutive games.

From a tight angle, De Bruyne slotted past Brentford goalkeeper David Raya.

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.

Brentford's woes continued as they suffered their fifth consecutive league defeat, bringing them closer to the relegation zone.

Pep Guardiola, City's coach, remarked, "That was a tough game." "They defend with a high press, then a deep, compact defence.
