Brentford vs Man Utd Prediction: Premier League Match

English Premier League action returns to our screens this weekend following the interruption of the international break, and it’s not a moment too soon in the eyes of fans. Saturday brings an eight-game card, which begins in the early afternoon with an eye-catching match from St James Park, where Newcastle United hosts West Ham United in what’s sure to be a classic. Top of the bill is set for a 20:00 GMT start in London as Brentford host Manchester United in a game broadcast live to a global television audience.

Saturday will be the second time the Bees and United have met this season, and fans hope for more of the same after a three-goal thriller back in October. Man Utd won that game at Old Trafford thanks to a deadly double from Scotsman Scott McTominay, with the beaten team keeping things interesting with a strike from Mathias Jensen on 26 minutes. The rivals will pick up where they left off, but which team will grab all three points?

Bees in danger

Life is proving difficult for Brentford in the top flight of English professional football, and the club is in danger of being sucked into an ugly relegation fight. Brentford could drop back into the Championship come the end of the season, but the Bees are determined to keep fighting and win the points needed to put space between themselves and the bottom three. Ahead of Saturday’s return to action, Brentford are five points ahead of Nottingham Forest in 18th, meaning a tense finish is likely.

Brentford prepares for this game on the back of a woeful run of form in the EPL. They’ve won just one point from their last six games, following five defeats and a draw. They headed into the international break with a disappointing 2-1 loss away to Burnley, and they will know what’s at stake on Saturday and in the coming weeks. Brentford must make their stadium a fortress if they are to climb the ladder towards safety.

United target a double

Manchester United returned from the international break sitting sixth in the Premier League. Their stats for the campaign show 15 wins, two draws, and 11 defeats, with 39 goals scored and 39 conceded. When we examine those numbers more closely, we notice United is the lowest scorer among the top 13 teams in the EPL, and their defence isn’t too great either. The club must ensure they turn chances into goals if they are to trouble the prize places.

The visitors suffered back-to-back Premier League losses but went into the break with a much-needed win over Everton in the league and Liverpool in the FA Cup. They beat the Toffees 2-0 at Old Trafford in an expected win but surprised many when beating Liverpool 4-3 in a thriller from the FA Cup. Confidence is returning to the camp as the visitors arrive in Brentford looking to continue their winning ways.

Brentford vs Man Utd prediction

Brentford has the home advantage for this game and will be roared on by a capacity crowd when Man Utd visits. The hosts also know their opponents have lost two of their last three Premier League games, and that’s likely to offer confidence as they head into Saturday evening’s late kick-off. Will Brentford take advantage?

Man United impressed when they beat Liverpool by the odd goal in that seven-goal thriller to keep their dreams of winning the FA Cup alive. Those inside the away dressing room know the size of the task ahead of Saturday evening, but they also know a win would push them closer to the major European places. If United is at its best, it should be good enough to win.
