Brentford will look to make amends for a 3-0 loss to Liverpool when they take on Manchester United in the Premier League round 17.
The Bees did well to beat Aston Villa in their last home fixture, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of CR7 and Co. Midfielder Frank Onyeka is on international duty, while all Dasilva, Fosu, Zanka, and Goode are out of contention with injuries for the home team.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa at the weekend, with Bruno Fernandes scoring a brace.
Man Utd are eager to return to winning ways, andseeing that Brentford have been struggling at the back of late, away victory should be considered. Both Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay are back from suspension, while Cristiano Ronaldo is a major doubt after suffering a hip injury.
Brentford 1 – 2 Manchester United
With no doubt, over the years Man United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
Also, the likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
