Reason for Brentford vs Manchester United Predictions
Brentford welcomes Manchester United to the Brentford Community Stadium for this encounter. The hosts are in 14th position with 23 points while the visitors are in 7th position with 32 points. Brentford suffered a 3-0 loss away to Liverpool in their last match, which means they have lost four of their previous five league matches, with the one win coming against Aston Villa. It has been seldom in recent times that Brentford has shown defensive steel. The reality is that Brentford has seen their defense breached in 6 of their previous six games, leaking 12 goals on the way. Coming into this contest, Brentford is unbeaten in their last two league matches at home. Vitaly Janelt plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Bryan Mbeumo plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable, he deserves to play in a better team. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Josh Dasilva (Hip Injury) and David Raya (Knee Injury) are not available for Brentford coach Thomas Frank. Frank Onyeka will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Manchester will be disappointed with their 2-2 draw in the last match, having had a two-goal advantage with 13 minutes to play. This result saw them lose ground on the teams in the European qualification places. They now find themselves in the seventh position, two points behind 5th placed Arsenal, and five points behind 4th placed West Ham. They do, however, have two games in hand over West Ham. Ralf Rangnick’s Manchester United have managed to stick the ball in the net eight times throughout their latest six matches. The total of goals that have been scored against them during the equivalent period adds up to 5. Coming into this contest, Manchester United has not been beaten in their last two league matches away from home. Jadon Sancho is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Scott McTominay found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Manchester United manager Ralph Rangnik has more accessibility issues. Paul Pogba (tendon injury), Harry McGuire (chest injury), and Tahit Chong (groin surgery) will not perform.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Brentford is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Manchester United should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
