Man United star left out of the starting XI again for Brentford clash

Man United star left out of the starting XI again for Brentford clash

Manchester United need a win

Having taken one point from a possible six in their last two Premier League games, Manchester United and Ralf Rangnick desperately need a win as they travel to the Community Stadium to take on Brentford this evening.

After a 1-0 defeat to Wolves at Old Trafford, the Red Devils looked to have turned things around, racing into a 2-0 lead against Aston Villa after 70 minutes. However, the introduction of former Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho changed the course of the game, and left Rangnick and co. hanging on for a point by the end, with the Brazilian providing a goal and assist on his return to Premier League action.

And now, United have been dealt a blow on the personnel front.

Early team news

As per Peter Graves of Sky Sports, some early team news for Wednesday has been forthcoming, concerning club captain Harry Maguire.

Graves reports that the England defender is set to remain on the bench this evening due to a rib injury:

“Understand Harry Maguire will be on the bench again for #mufc at Brentford tonight. He’s had a rib injury and isn’t deemed fit enough to start. Will fulfil his role as captain off the field and be a big voice in the dressing room.”

This means that Victor Lindelof is likely to once more partner Raphael Varane, with Eric Bailly still on international duty with the Ivory Coast.

Will they be able to keep Brentford quiet?
