The Manchester United team will challenge the Brentford team in a Matchday 8 Premier League in Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester on Saturday, October 07, 2023. For streaming coverage of Man Utd vs Brentford, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Man United will host Brentford at their headquarters Old Trafford in the 8th week of the Premier League on Saturday, 7/10/2023 ET. This is an important match for both teams, who are experiencing a lot of difficulties in terms of performance and team strength.
Man United is in a serious crisis situation, which even their striker Rasmus Hojlund cannot deny. The Danish player scored two goals against Galatasaray in the Champions League last Tuesday night, but could not save Man Utd from a 2-3 defeat in a match with 10 players. This is Man Utd’s second defeat in a row at Old Trafford, after previously being defeated by Crystal Palace in Week 7 of the Premier League.
Man United is currently at the bottom of the Champions League standings and is ranked 10th in the Premier League after only achieving 4 wins and having to suffer 6 defeats in the last 10 matches. Coach Erik ten Hag and his players are under immense pressure and if they do not achieve victory in this match, they may face unexpected consequences.
ManU continues to be hit by injuries, when Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Tyrell Malacia, Sergio Reguilon, Lisandro Martinez cannot take the field. New player Sofyan Amrabat is likely to continue to be trusted in the left back position. Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes also cannot play because he has to serve a suspension after receiving a red card in the match against Galatasaray.
Brentford also did not have a better performance than MUFC. In the last match, Brentford was held to a 1-1 draw by Nottingham despite having taken the lead and playing with more players. Brentford have endured a terrible September, when they didn’t win at all and were knocked out of the Premier League Cup by Arsenal. The visitors now have to travel to Old Trafford while they have not tasted victory in 5 consecutive matches in the Premier League, a result that has seen them drop to 14th in the standings.
Brentford also experienced problems in terms of team strength. Mikel Damsgaard is the latest to be ruled out with a knee injury. It is difficult for Rico Henry to hope to return to play this season while Ivan Toney is still serving his suspension. Apart from that, Kevin Schade, Shandon Baptiste, Ben Mee, Josh Dasilva are also recovering.
MUFC fans may be very worried when they come to Old Trafford this time, but this match will be an opportunity for MUFC to bounce back, because Brentford is also suffering and short of players.
