Brentford Double Chance (Win or Draw)

Reason for tip

United have lost five of their last seven Premier League games and they’ve only won twice on the road in the league in 2022. The Red Devils still have huge problems after losing to Brighton on the opening day, so Brentford should avoid defeat.

Brentford vs Manchester United Predictions

  • United have lost five of their last seven Premier League games
  • The Red Devils won only six of their 19 away trips last term
  • The visitors have won twice in the league on the road in 2022

New low for United

United’s new era got off to the worst possible start, with Erik ten Hag losing his opening game at home to Brighton. With issues around Cristiano Ronaldo rumbling on and a real lack of signings, the mood around United isn’t great.

The Red Devils have lost five of their last seven Premier League games (W1 D1), so it’s odd to see them priced up as odds-on favourites for this clash. Even more so on the road, where they ended last season on a six-match away losing run.

More questions than answers for United

The Red Devils are in need of huge changes, but the moves they’ve made haven’t addressed their key issues. They still have a weak midfield, while Ronaldo’s situation has left ten Hag in a tricky spot. They look lightweight up front, but the Dutchman had to turn to Ronaldo in an attempt to salvage the game against Brighton.

It’s hard to see how United turn things around with this current squad, as ten Hag tries to implement his style of play. He’s also trying to lift a side who were terrible away from home last season, with the Red Devils failing to win 13 of their 19 away games.

More trouble for United

Even if United get their act together, that’s no guarantee of a victory. Since the start of last season, only Liverpool (21) and Tottenham (17) have picked up more points from losing positions in the Premier League than Brentford (16), after the Bees’ impressive weekend comeback against Leicester.

The hosts also lost only once in their opening seven games last season, so they should continue their strong start. Given that United have won just twice on the road in the league in 2022, I’m siding against them here.

Brentford double chance looks like great value given the issues at Old Trafford right now. Meanwhile, United drew 1-1 in four of their five away draws last season and they look defensively vulnerable, so back another score draw for the Bees on Saturday.
