Manchester United are looking to reel in the likes of Tottenham and embroil themselves in the battle for Champions League football next season. Brentford, however, need even more breathing room between them and the drop zone.

Brentford currently sit 15th in the Premier League after 29 games. The Bees have seven wins, five draws and 17 losses, leaving them on 26 points, five points above the relegation zone.

The Bees have been consistent in front of goal this season, scoring 41 goals in 29 games, giving them an average of 1.41 goals a game. However, Brentford have struggled defensively, conceding 54 goals and keeping just four clean sheets.

Manchester United, on the other hand, currently sit sixth in the Premier League. In 28 games, The Red Devils have 15 wins, two draws and 11 losses which leaves them on 47 points, six points behind fifth-place Tottenham and nine points behind Aston Villa in the last Champions League spot.

The Red Devils have struggled in front of goal this season. In 28 games, United have scored just 39 goals, giving them an average of just 1.39 goals a game. United have been much better defensively, conceding just 39 goals and keeping eight clean sheets.

Brentford and Manchester United have met just 18 times in their histories, the first meeting coming back in the FA Cup in 1928. United have the better record in the fixture with ten wins in comparison to Brentford’s six wins, the other two games ending in a draw.

The Bees’ only win in this fixture since 1938 came back in 2022, the impressive 4 - 0 win over a struggling United. This fixture usually promises goals with four of the last five games having at least three goals a game.

Form Guide

In their last five games in all competitions, Brentford have one draw and four losses.

The visit from Manchester City saw Erling Haaland score the only goal of the game in the 71st minute to give City the 1 - 0 win, with Brentford only able to register 30% of the possession and two shots on target.

The visit to East London saw The Bees 2 - 0 down in under ten minutes, with both goals coming from Jarrod Bowen. Neal Maupay did get Brentford on the scoresheet just five minutes later but in the second half Bowen secured his hat-trick and was joined on the scoresheet by Emerson Palmieri. Yoane Wissa did score late on for Brentford, but West Ham held on for the 4 - 2 win.

Another London derby saw The Bees host Chelsea. Nicolas Jackson gave The Blues the 1 - 0 lead at halftime, but goals from Mads Roerslev and Wissa gave Brentford the 2 - 1 lead with 20 minutes to go. However, Axel Disasi popped up with a goal in the 83rd minute to force a 2 - 2 draw.

Brentford played yet another London team, this time travelling to North London to take on Arsenal. Declan Rice opened the scoring for Arsenal but Wissa drew The Bees level in the added time of the first half. With just four minutes to go Kai Havertz found the back of the net to give The Gunners the 2 - 1 win.

The last time out for Brentford was against Burnley. Reguilon was shown a red in the eighth minute and Jacob Bruun Larsen converted the subsequent penalty. David Fofana doubled Burnley’s lead and despite the late goal from Kristoffer Ajer, Burnley held on for the 2 - 1 win.

In their last five games in all competitions, Manchester United have three wins and two losses.

After a goalless first half, Calvin Bassey opened the scoring for Fulham but Harry Maguire equalised for United with just one minute of normal time to go. However, Alex Iwobi popped up with a goal in the 97th minute to give Fulham the 2 - 1 win.

In the Fifth Round of the FA Cup, Manchester United took on fellow Premier League side Nottingham Forest. Casemiro scored the only goal of the game in the 89th minute to give United the 1 - 0 win.

The next time out was a Manchester derby against City. Marcus Rashford gave United the lead in the eighth minute but a brace from Phil Foden and a goal from Haaland in the second half gave City the 3 - 1 win.

United bounced back against Everton. Penalties from Bruno Fernandes and Rashford gave United the 2 - 0 win, despite The Toffees having eight more shots than The Red Devils.

The most recent outing for United was a seven goal thriller against Liverpool in the FA Cup Quarter Final. Scott McTominay opened the scoring early, but Alexis Mac Allister and Mo Salah both scored to give Liverpool the lead before halftime. Antony scored with just three minutes of normal time to go to send the tie to extra time. Harvey Elliot drew first blood in extra time but goals from Rashford and Amad gave United the 4 - 3 wins, with Amad sent off after scoring the winner.

FlashPicks Prediction

Despite the international break, United will be in good momentum after their win over Liverpool. Brentford are also in a patch of torrid form and are there for the taking for United. Brentford 1-2 Manchester United
