            Manchester United vs. Brentford Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Manchester United are looking to put a torrid period behind them as they face Brentford at Old Trafford in the Premier League this weekend.

            Manchester United currently sit 10th in the Premier League with three wins and four losses from their first seven games of the season.

            It's a dismal time to be a Manchester United fan at the minute with the club in disarray both on and off the pitch; results have been borderline embarrassing while off-field antics have been even more humiliating for the club from the Mason Greenwood saga in the summer to the Antony and Jason Sancho incidents more recently.

            They're coming into this game in poor form overall having lost three of their last five games in all competitions including their last two on the bounce.

            Their most recent game saw them fall to a 2-3 loss at home to Turkish side Galatasaray in a chaotic game that highlighted United's lack of cohesion and direction as a unit.

            After falling 0-1 behind, a brace from Rasmus Højlund had Ten Hag's side in the driver's seat but after Højlund's second the Turkish side equalised immediately before Casemiro was sent off for a foul that gave Galatasaray a penalty that Mauro Icardi missed before making amends with a winner just a few minutes later.

            The game was a damning indictment of United's current predicament and it came after a dour performance that saw them lose 0-1 at home to Crystal Palace last weekend.

            As such, the pressure has piled up palpably on Erik ten Hag and comes into this game desperately needing three points.

            Brentford currently sit 14th in the Premier League with one win, four draws and two losses from their first seven games of the season.

            It's been a somewhat underwhelming start to the league season for a Brentford side that people have come to expect a lot from following their impressive showings both last season and the one prior.

            However they've been short of their usual quality thus far and they come into this game amidst a poor run of form, winless in their last five games in all competitions having lost three of their last four.

            Their most recent outing saw them held to a 1-1 draw away at Nottingham Forest in a game that saw their opponents reduced to ten men with the scores at 0-0 before Christian Nørgaard gave them the lead immediately following the red card.

            Brentford's inability to see out a game in which they had a man advantage will without doubt have irritated Thomas Frank and they now comes into this game needing a result more much than they would have had they taken three points last weekend.

            Despite their own poor form they'll still feel confident about their own chances considering United's vulnerability but they're going to have to improve on their recent performances.

            For our Man Utd vs. Brentford prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.

            Man Utd Team News

            Lisandro Martínez is set for another spell on the sidelines after aggravating the foot injury that kept him out at the back end of last season as the Argentine joins Tyrell Malacia, Luke Shaw, Amad Diallo, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Jadon Sancho, Sergio Reguilon on the treatment table.

            Antony could feature from the start after coming off the bench against Galatasaray while Jonny Evans may also parter Raphäel Varane at the heart of the defence.

            Brentford Team News

            Rico Henry, Josh Dasilva, Shandon Baptiste, Kevin Schade, Ben Mee and Mikkel Damsgaard will all play no part in this game in what is an unfortunately absentee list for the Bees.

            With so many big names injured Thomas Frank cannot afford many major changes to his starting lineup but he could grant a start to on loan striker Neal Maupay.
