Foden's hat-trick against Brentford moves Manchester City into second place

On Monday night, Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden scored a hat-trick in a 3-1 win over Brentford.

The victory allowed City to take advantage of Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat against Arsenal and pull within two points of the leaders.

The triple champions were surprised when Neal Maupay latched onto Mark Flekken’s long goal-kick for a route-one opener after 21 minutes, and they found the Brentford goalkeeper in inspired form as they looked for an equalizer.

But just as Arsenal and Liverpool were beginning to let themselves hope, Brentford’s resistance was broken when Ethan Pinnock’s weak clearance allowed Foden a simple finish moments before the break.
