Erik ten Hag started his Manchester United career in the worst possible way with a defeat at home to Brighton.
The Red Devils’ confidence will be on the floor and a trip to west London to face Brentford is far from ideal.
The Bees were strong at home last season and they will be hoping to capitalise on a fragile Man United team.
Ivan Toney scored a very well-taken goal last weekend against Leicester City to open his account for the season.
Now, having seen United’s defence against Brighton, he will be fired up to score again this Saturday.
Match preview: Brentford vs Manchester United
Brentford produced an impressive turnaround at the King Power Stadium last weekend to kick start their campaign.
The Bees went 2-0 down but stunned the Foxes with second-half goals from Ivan Toney and Josh Dasilva.
Thomas Frank’s side have enjoyed a strong transfer window by signing Keane Lewis-Potter, Ben Mee, Aaron Hickey and Thomas Strakosha.
Now, they have managed to complete the most impressive signing of the lot by bringing in Mikkel Damsgaard from Sampdoria.
The west London club will be hoping the 23-year-old can help fill the gap left following the departure of Christian Eriksen.
Meanwhile, in the opposite dugout, Erik ten Hag has big pressure on him already following an opening day defeat at Brighton.
The Seagulls won 2-1 at Old Trafford in what was a humiliating start to life at United for the Dutch coach.
The Red Devils looked well off the pace last weekend and were having to play without a recosgnied striker.
The frustrated figure of Cristiano Ronaldo was started on the bench, but given how poor they looked, it is likely the 37-year-old will start in west London.
