Match Preview: Manchester United vs. Brentford

Manchester United host Brentford on Monday night in the final Premier League game at Old Trafford this season.

This will be the first time Brentford have visited Old Trafford in a competitive game since 1975, when goals from Lou Macari and Sammy Mcllroy gave the Reds victory in the second round of the League Cup.

United haven’t lost any of our last seven Premier League games at the Theatre of Dreams and we drew 1-1 at Old Trafford against Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea on Thursday night.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored seven goals in his last three league games at home, and will be looking to add to his already impressive tally of 23 in all competitions for the season.

Brentford come into the game in a fine run of form, and are unbeaten in their last four games. During that run, the Bees have conceded only two goals and scored eight.

The West London side sit in 12th place on 40 points and have had an impressive first year back in the top-flight since 1947. The Bees have won two out of their last three away games, including a 4-1 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge at the start of April, and played out a 0-0 stalemate with Tottenham last time out.

Manchester United Team News:

Ralf Rangnick is hopeful that Fred will make his return to the side after being forced off in the defeat at Goodison Park earlier this month, while Jadon Sancho is unlikely to play as he has tonsillitis.

Edinson Cavani, Harry Maguire and Jesse Lingard all missed our draw with Chelsea but could play a part against the Bees on Monday. However Cavani – who only returned to training on Friday – may only be fit enough for an appearance from the bench.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Dalot, Lindelof, Varane, Telles; Matic, McTominay; Rashford, Fernandes, Elanga; Ronaldo
