The Big One: Brentford vs Manchester United Preview


Brentford is looking to complete their first league double in 86 years against the Red Devils after beating Manchester United 4-0 in London in August. Brentford hasn’t won at home and away in the league since 1936-37. Not only that, but Brentford is also hoping to do a double over Manchester in the 2022-23 season. After beating Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium. Before the 2022 World Cup break, they could become the first London club to win away at both Manchester clubs in the same season since Arsenal in 1990-91.

What can we expect from the match between Brentford and Manchester United

The Opta supercomputer fancies Manchester United to get some revenge on Brentford following the early season thrashing by the Bees in west London, giving Ten Hag’s team a 45.8% chance of victory. United (84.1%) has the 3rd highest success rate in the league this season, after Arsenal and City, according to the supercomputer’s estimates. Brentford are currently seventh in the Premier League table. But their chances in the final four and Champions League are slim with a supercomputer rating of just 0.3%.

Recent form of both the teams

It’s been a poor recent run of form in front of goal for Ten Hag’s Red Devils – Manchester United have failed to score in three consecutive Premier League games for a seventh time. And for the first time since February 2020. In their three most recent matches versus Newcastle United, Southampton and Liverpool, they attempted 24 shots totalling 2.11 expected goals, without success. Never have they gone four without a goal in the competition. Last time doing so in the league overall in April 1989.

Brentford have proven a stiff test for the majority of sides in the Premier League this season. They have lost just one of their last 16 Premier League games, going down 1-0 at Everton last month. Only Arsenal, Manchester City and Newcastle have lost fewer games than the Bees this season (five). Though Thomas Frank’s side have drawn more Premier League games than anyone else this term (13).
