Brentford vs Man United: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results – preview


anchester United face Brentford for the first time in almost half a century on Wednesday night.

West London welcomes the Red Devils for a top-flight game with the Bees revelling in their Premier League debut and able to enter the top-half with a victory.

Liverpool, Arsenal and West Ham have all stumbled against Thomas Frank’s side this season while United have been prone to slip-ups themselves.

A 2-2 draw at Aston Villa on Saturday left United five points off fourth place, albeit with two games in hand.

Originally due to be played over a month ago, the initial meeting was postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the visitors’ squad.
