Brentford striker Ivan Toney has seen the funny side of their defeat by Manchester City in the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola’s side sealed a 1-0 victory at the Bees thanks to a Phil Foden goal in the 16th minute.
City were understandably on top against the side promoted from the Championship only last season and Toney has compared the match to year 11 students taking the ball off a younger age group in the school playground.

‘Not the best kick about year 11s Stole our ball,’ Toney wrote on Twitter.
‘But we go again next year. Fans were behind us right till the end.
‘Happy new year everyone stay safe. @BrentfordFC.’
City are now nine points ahead of Liverpool and eight points clear of Chelsea at the top
The win saw City move eight points clear at the top of the Premier League after title rivals Chelsea and Liverpool conceded more ground in the race this week.
City boss Guardiola insisted the title race is far from over after his side tightened their grip on top spot at Brentford, however.
‘There are 54 points to play for and so many more tough teams to play so when you put it in that perspective eight points is ridiculous,’ he said on Wednesday night.
‘We were 4-0 up and in 20 minutes it was 4-3 three, four days ago [against Leicester] so all of you, thank you for your nice words because we win but I’m not going to believe any of the words you are going to say about you think it is already done.’
