Manchester United vs Brentford match preview

After a pretty sobering defeat at the weekend, can Manchester United climb back into the top four?

On Sunday, the Red Devils were emphatically smashed 2-0 by Newcastle at St James’ Park, in a game that was far more one-sided than the scoreline would suggest.

This saw Erik ten Hag’s team slip down to fifth, having failed to win three consecutive league fixtures for the first time all season.

Of course, Man United could still win a cup treble, hoping to add the FA Cup and the Europa League to the Carabao Cup.

However, they do need to make sure of a top four finish, making a victory here of paramount importance.

Brentford have lost their last four visits to Old Trafford, dating back to 1937, but did famously smashed Man United 4-0 in the reverse fixture, with all the goals coming in the first 35 minutes.

The Bees played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Brighton on Saturday, taking the lead on three occasions, via Pontus Jansson, Ivan Toney and then Ethan Pinnock.

The visitors had just seven shots in Sussex compared to Brighton’s 33, so are grateful for the point they earned.

Thomas Frank’s side have now lost just one of their 16 Premier League fixtures so sit seventh, very much in the conversation to qualify for Europe for the very first time.

Can the Bees spring a major surprise at Old Trafford?

Manchester United team news

This’ll be the third match of Casemiro’s four-game ban, with the Brazilian next available for Thursday’s Europa League clash with Sevilla.

In his absence, compatriot Fred could return to midfield, with Erik ten Hag unlikely to continue with the Marcel Sabitzer-Scott McTominay axis

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been struggling with illness, so Diogo Dalot could keep his place at right-back.

After an anonymous performance from Antony at the weekend, Jadon Sancho will be hoping for a start.

Predicted XI: (4-3-3): de Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martínez, Shaw; McTominay, Fred, Fernandes; Sancho, Rashford, Weghorst.

Brentford team news

Thomas Frank switched to a back five for Saturday’s trip to Brighton, and could continue with that shape here.

Pontus Jansson was the man to benefit from this switch, scoring on his first start since 1 October after injury.

Vitaly Janelt is a doubt so, if Frank does want to bring in an extra midfield, it’s likely to be Josh Dasilva.

Talisman Ivan Toney, who’s now scored 18 goals this season, would miss Brentford’s next two games, against Newcastle and Wolves, if booked.

Predicted XI (5-3-2): Raya; Hickey, Pinnock, Jansson, Mee, Henry; Nørgaard, Dasilva, Jensen; Mbuemo, Toney.
