Brentford will tonight look to hand Manchester United further cause for concern when they travel to Old Trafford in midweek.
A run of three Premier League games without a win have left the Red Devils’ position in the top four under threat, with Erik ten Hag admitting to key attitude issues in his squad after the defeat at Newcastle.
Brentford thumped United 4-0 in August and harbour genuine hopes of European football under Thomas Frank, although Brighton denied them a vital three points in the weekend as they stretched their unbeaten run to three games.

Manchester United vs Brentford prediction
The Red Devils have struggled of late and come up against a Bees team that really wallopped them earlier in the season.

United to win, 2-1.
