Manchester United vs Brentford Predictions

  • Manchester United have conceded 18 goals in ten games this season.
  • Brentford have drawn five of their nine matches this term.
  • The Bees have only kept one clean sheet in nine games.

Red Devils’ woes continue

Manchester United’s season went from bad to worse in midweek as they fell to a shock defeat at home to Galatasaray, despite twice leading the match and the visiting Turks missing a penalty.

That result leaves them with four wins and six defeats from ten competitive games this term and they could come under pressure when they face Brentford on Saturday, although the Bees aren’t in the best of form themselves.

Bees struggling for form

Thomas Frank’s side drew 1-1 with Nottingham Forest on Sunday to make it seven competitive games without a win in regulation time and they have only won once this season.

Brentford have, however, scored in seven of their nine outings this term and have more than enough attacking talent to put a torrid Manchester United defence under pressure.

Defensive issues could make for high-scoring affair

The Red Devils actually looked promising going forward against Galatasaray but were undone by some calamitous defending. Injuries to key defenders haven’t helped matters, but schoolboy defensive errors and a few howlers by Andre Onana mean they have conceded 18 goals in ten assignments this season.

Considering Brentford have only kept one clean sheet this term, backing both teams to score looks an excellent choice and I also expect the spoils to be shared. The visitors have drawn five of their nine games this season and a third 2-2 draw could be on the cards.

Rasmus Hojlund looks a good choice in the anytime goalscorer market after a string of impressive performances. He was Manchester United’s best player by far on Wednesday and backed it up with a couple of goals, meaning he has scored three in five starts for his new club.
