Brentford vs Man United live stream, prediction, head to head, results, Team News.
The 17:30 BST kickoff represents an opportunity to respond positively to the opening-weekend loss to Brighton & Hove Albion, but the Bees will be buoyant after coming back from two goals down to draw at Leicester City, and running out in front of their home support in the top-flight again after comfortably avoiding relegation in their debut Premier League season.
The introduction of Christian Eriksen was a major factor in their surge towards safety, but he will be playing for United this time due to his summer transfer to Old Trafford on a free transfer.
The Denmark international made his debut in a ‘false-nine’ position, but the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo has been able to increase his training this week suggests that last season’s leading scorer may be nearing full fitness.
Ronaldo came off the bench against Brighton, and on Friday, Erik ten Hag will provide an update on the centre forward to determine if he is in contention to start.
Anthony Martial was, of course, unavailable due to injury, but there is optimism that he will be able to return soon after his impressive preseason performance.
Facundo Pellistri reported injuring his ankle during the match against Atletico Madrid, while other squad members, including Brandon Williams and Phil Jones, were unable to participate in Tour 2022 due to fitness issues.
Victor Lindelof was not included in the matchday squad last weekend, and Raphael Varane, who has been undergoing an individual training programme, was on the bench against Brighton.

The odds for Brentford vs Man United is as follows: Brentford winning is 25% Man United winning is 48 % draw is 27%
We say: Brentford 1-2 Manchester United
Man United is currently a very difficult team to back, but we have a feeling about the Red Devils. The players should be motivated to bounce back from a disappointing loss against Brighton, and although Brentford are capable of causing plenty of problems, we believe that the visitors will have just enough quality to prevail.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Dalot, Maguire, L Martinez, Shaw; Eriksen, Fred, Fernandes; Sancho, Ronaldo, Rashford
