Man City was looking close to scoring on many occasions. Brentford was also close to scoring on their few chances at the start of the game. As always, Man City dominated possession and didn't let Brentford near the ball. Brentford was still able to shut down any attacks as they defended well in their box. Brentford threatened with counter-attacks and would get a corner often.

Brentford keeper Mark Flekken had the best first half in his career as he assisted Neal Maupay for the opener for Brentford. Brentford took the lead in the 21st minute after Flekken kicked the ball on a goal kick. The ball went past everyone, and Ivan Toney pretended to go for the ball. Toney doesn't touch it, and it falls to Maupay, which sets him up for a one-on-one with Ederson. Maupay makes no mistake, and he sends the ball into the bottom left corner of the net. Maupay makes it 1-0 to Brentford against Man City.
