Manchester United v Brentford Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 3pm UK Time, Saturday 7th October 2023

 

Manchester United are reeling following some shocking performances and they will be desperate to avoid defeat when Brentford visit Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Manchester United appear to be a team in crisis right now, the Old Trafford outfit losing each of their last two Premier League games on home soil and failing to collect a single point from their opening two Champions League outings against Bayern Munich and Galatasaray. A catalogue of errors contributed to the defeat to the Turkish side and with a mere 9 points collected from a possible 21 in the Premier League, Eric ten Hag’s side find themselves languishing in 10th position in the league table.

Clearly the ongoing injury crisis and off-field issues have played a big part in United’s current downfall but some blame can certainly be laid squarely at the feet of the manager with regard to questionable recruitment and defensive disasters. Five of Man United’s last seven games across competitions have ended in defeat and should they fail to take anything from the weekend visit of Brentford, they would become the first Red Devils side to lose three successive Premier League matches in front of their own home fans.

Brentford will be doing their utmost to condemn United to a third successive home defeat in the league although the visitors have failed to win any of their last five Premier League outings, losing three times during this time. As things stand the Bees sit in 14th position in the division and while they beat Manchester United 4-0 last summer, the Red Devils have triumphed in each of their last two meetings with the West London side.

Even the most optimistic home fans will head to Old Trafford with much trepidation on Saturday afternoon and this is entirely understandable for obvious reasons, however while we envisage Brentford ending their goalscoring drought here, Thomas Frank’s defensive is rather suspect and we’ll be siding with the hosts to edge their way to a nervy three points.
