Could City’s Norwegian starlet make an impact against Brentford tonight?

Is tonight’s game against Brentford tailor-made for City’s Norwegian starlet Oscar Bobb to make an impact? Bobb hasn’t featured for City since their 1-nil FA Cup fourth-round tie win over Tottenham. He has been an unused substitute in every game since the win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. But could he be poised to make an impact tonight?

City’s Norwegian starlet has already made an impact during his first season with the Manchester City first team. He scored a crucial winner against Newcastle last month. It was a huge goal in the context of City’s season and showed when called upon by Pep Guardiola that the youngster can make an important impact for the champions.

Tonight’s game against Brentford could be another opportunity for Bobb to make his presence felt. Thomas Frank’s side are likely to employ a low block at the back in a bid to frustrate Pep Guardiola’s side. Oscar Bobb’s ability in tight spaces coupled with his ability to find a pass could be a key ingredient in unlocking the Bee’s defence. He does have the game that could see him make an impact if he is called upon by Pep Guardiola tonight. As shown by his winner against Newcastle at St. James Park last month Bobb is ready to alter a game if called upon.

Whether or not he starts tonight’s game or called upon as a substitute it’s clear that Oscar Bobb can alter a game if necessary. Tonight’s game may be the ideal setting for City’s Norwegian starlet to make a mark if he is called up at the Etihad Stadium.
