Brentford take on Manchester United this weekend, here we have how to watch, team news, head-to-head, odds, prediction and everything you need to know.

Both teams will be looking to get their first win of the season this Saturday, as both sides dropped points on the opening weekend. Manchester United suffered a bitter 2 – 1 defeat at Old Trafford to a brilliant Brighton Hove Albion side who simply outclassed them in their own backyard.

Brentford on the other hand will be somewhat optimistic after their opener, they drew 2 – 2 against a strong Leicester City side with goals from Ivan Toney and a fantastic strike from Joshua Dasilva.

We’re looking forward to this one – but who will come out on top? Here’s everything you need to know about Brentford vs Manchester United.

Thomas Frank will have some decisions to make following the draw against Leicester. Late goalscorer Joshua Dasilva came off the bench to score a stunning equaliser and he could definitely be in contention for a start against the Red Devils.

As for injuries and suspensions – they came out unscathed against the Foxes, so Frank pretty much has his whole squad at his disposal.

As for Manchester United, the striker position is still being debated thanks to Anthony Martial sustaining an injury just before the season started. He’s still out, so we may see Cristiano Ronaldo obtain a start after sitting on the bench to begin with against Brighton.

This upcoming match will be the 3rd between the two sides. United have won two, and Brentford have won zero. There has been one draw between the two sides historically.

Last three meetings in all competitions:

  • 2nd May 2022: Manchester United 3 – 0 Brentford
  • 19th January 2022: Brentford 1 – 3 Manchester United
  • 4th April 2021: Manchester United 2 – 2 Brentford

Odds

The betting markets have Manchester United as their favourites.

  1. Brentford to win: 11/4
  2. Draw: 12/5
  3. Manchester United to win: 19/20

Prediction

Despite their shocking start to the season, Manchester United should really bounce back to beat this Brentford side. It’ll be a tight, well-contested fixture – but we think ten Hag will nick it to obtain his first ever competitive win for the Red Devils.
