Erling Haaland won a great ball off Brentford's Reguilon at the start of the game. Haaland took a shot on target early in the first few minutes, but his shot went straight at Flekken. Flekken would become a key player for Brentford as he made crazy saves to deny Man City. City played in Brentford’s half as they tried to get the opener in the first ten minutes. Phil Foden took a shot from outside the box, but a Brentford defender blocked the attempt heading towards the net.

Brentford had a clear chance to score early in the first half. The clearest chance was for Onyeka, who ran with pace with the ball. Wissa gave him a great ball, but Kyle Walker was catching him up. Under pressure, he took a tame shot straight at Ederson, and the Brazilian made an easy save. Brentford was close again a few minutes later when the Bees had a free kick. Ivan Toney took the free kick, and the ball just went over the bar.
