Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has named a Brentford player that may be dangerous on the pitch when the City take on the Bees in their next Premier League match on Monday.

Pep Guardiola names Man City player with De Bruyne:s quality

The Catalan was full of praise for Ivan Toney, described as an exceptional Brentford player who may hurt any opponent with his ability on the pitch.

The 27-year-old forward has struck in both of his appearances since completing an eight-month suspension. He scored the last goal of their 3-2 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in their last league match and scored the first goal in a 3-2 win against Nottingham Forest in his debut match after completing his suspension.

He also has a great record against Manchester City. Last season, he scored twice when the Bees won at the Etihad Stadium. Therefore, he was labelled an influential Brentford player that the Cityzens must be careful of on the pitch.

The City manager said: “He’s an exceptional player. Not just with the long balls, with keeping (the ball) and set-pieces, with the penalties as a guarantee.

“For many things, they can link with him and he’s an extraordinary player.

“I’m so happy he is back and hopefully that period is forgotten in his life and for his family. Exceptional players always are more than welcome in the Premier League,” Pep said.

Pep Guardiola expected the encounter with the Bees to be difficult, particularly with the quality of players and manager they have. It must also be noted that Brentford had a double victory against the Cityzens last campaign, beating the Premier League champions both home and away.

“We know in the past how difficult they have been. Even when we won it was always tight and we lost the two games we played last season,” Pep said.

“So we know the difficulty for the way they play, the standards that they have. They are clear and they believe it and they apply really well.

“It’s another game to face, a new challenge.”
