What will Ronaldo bring to his team as we confirmed team news, Brentford vs. Manchester United
Brentford vs. Manchester United 17:30
Mikkel Damsgaard, the new Brentford acquisition, is available, but head coach Thomas Frank has stated that the Denmark international is not yet ready to play.
Ethan Pinnock is out with a knee injury, and Kristoffer Ajer and Sergi Canos are also out with hamstring injuries.
Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag might start Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been working on his health following a shortened preseason.
Anthony Martial and Victor Lindelof are still absent.
I’d normally expect Manchester United to respond to what occurred against Brighton on Sunday.
But not this time, since United has problems everywhere. I’m not blaming Erik ten Hag for their current condition, but he ought to try to solve their difficulties.
I don’t think Lisandro Martinez and Harry Maguire can beat Ivan Toney at the back. Cristiano Ronaldo should return to lead the line up front, but how fit is he?
Brentford, like Brighton, are incredibly well-drilled, and until United click, they will struggle again.
Also, while United ultimately decided against signing Bologna striker Marko Arnautovic, they deserve to lose just for considering it.
Some may consider my prediction to be poor, but it is not quite as terrible as United being associated with Arnautovic in the first place.
Since defeating Manchester United twice in the 1936-37 season, Brentford has only won one point from six top-flight games (D1, L5).
United’s most recent defeat in this game was a 2-0 loss away in the fifth round of the FA Cup in February 1938.
The Bees have never lost their first home game in the Premier League, winning five, drawing one, and scoring at least twice in each of their previous six seasons.
In five of their last seven Premier League home matches in 2021-22, they preserved a clean sheet.
Brentford have collected 16 Premier League points from losing positions at the start of last season, trailing only Liverpool’s 21 and Tottenham’s 17.
Thomas Frank’s side have scored an unrivalled 68% of their Premier League goals in the second half (34 of 50) since the beginning of last season.
