How to watch Man Utd v Brentford | Get 12 months of MUTV for price of six


Our visitors caught the eye last season as Thomas Frank’s young, energetic side achieved promotion by virtue of winning the Championship play-offs, beating Swansea City 2-0 at Wembley in May.

Brentford will therefore play in the top flight for the first time since 1947, when their five-season spell in the First Division – their only stint at the top level – was brought to an end.

The Bees moved into their new home, the Brentford Community Stadium, at the beginning of the 2020/21 campaign, after 116 years at Griffin Park.

That venue in West London hosted the last league meeting between United and Brentford – a goalless draw towards the end of the 1946/47 campaign – but the sides most recently faced each other in a 1975 League Cup tie at Old Trafford, with goals from Lou Macari and Sammy McIlroy giving us victory.
