Brentford – Momentum with Bees after King Power fightback?

Thomas Frank’s side sent the crowd inside the Brentford Community Stadium into a frenzy when winning beating Arsenal 2-0 in their opening home game of the 2021-22 Premier League season. As fate would have it, they open their accounts at their West London residence against another of English football’s fabled clubs, a Manchester United which swatted the Bees home and away on their return to the top-flight.

Last season, Brentford slumped to eight defeats in their 12 encounters versus the top-six in the table (W2 D2). Buoyed by last week’s fightback at Leicester, though, in which Josh Dasilva’s silky finish rescued a 2-2 draw having been 2-0 down at the King Power, there should be a buzz about the Bees as they target a famous win. Three wins in their last five home league games suggests they shouldn’t be underestimated.

Key Stat: Ivan Toney, scorer of their first in Matchday 1’s 2-2 draw away to Leicester City, has had a hand in 18 Premier League goals (13 goals, 5 assists) for Brentford, seven more than any of his team-mates has managed since the start of last season.

Manchester United – Fan discontent already evident?

The afternoon begun with optimism and a rousing reception for Erik ten Haag and his players, a few of which were making their club debuts. It ended with a chorus of boos ringing loud around Old Trafford following a dismal 2-1 loss to Brighton which only served to underscore the size of the rebuild on the Dutchman’s hands. Next up is a trip to Brentford, which should be of some comfort to supporters and players alike.

The Red Devils proved too hot for the Bees last season, scoring six across a pair of league meetings. Including a 3-1 scoreline in the capital. That latter success, though, stands as their sole victory in seven top-flight games (W1 D1). However if the players thought being away from a baying Old Trafford crowd was a positive, think again: Man Utd are on a six-game losing streak away from home in the Premier League.

Key Stat: Last season, Manchester United scored no more than once in 12 of 19 Premier League away games. They wrapped up 2021-22 by losing their final six away games, scoring only twice but conceding 13.

Brentford Vs Manchester United Betting Advice

Patience among the Manchester United faithful has run thin, and to a large extent it is understandable. The sight of Brentford, a side they defeated home and away in 2021-22, should be of some relief then. However, last week’s performance was rancid enough to dissuade a fair chunk of would-be backers this weekend. This before even taking into account their woes away from home in the latter stage of last season.


Brentford Vs Manchester United – Key Facts:

  • After losing home and away to Manchester United last season, Brentford are now winless in their past six top-flight encounters with the Red Devils (D1 L5).
  • However, the sides come into this latest duel in contrasting forms. Whereas Brentford boast three wins from their last five at home (D1 L1), Manchester United have lost each of their last six Premier League games away from home.
  • Only Tottenham (21) and Liverpool (17) have earned more points from losing positions since the start of last season than Brentford (16), who came from 2-0 down to draw their opening game of the season away to Leicester City.


Man Utd are on their longest losing away run since 1981, losing six on the spin at Arsenal, Brighton, Crystal Palace, Everton, Liverpool and Man City. The presumed return of Ronaldo to the XI will be a boost, however, don’t expect Thomas Frank’s men to roll out the red carpet. Brentford displayed their fighting qualities on the opening weekend, and have now lost just three of their 12 previous Premier League games (W7 D9).
