The December schedule is in full swing as clubs up and down the Premier League prepare for a season of joy, anxiety and unpredictability. It’s the most wonderful time of the year for football fans with games coming at us from every single direction, and that theme is going to continue later this week with one of the featured games pitting an exciting Brentford side against a revived Manchester United.

Brentford

Brentford started off the new campaign like a house on fire and while they did hit something of a blip in the last couple of months, they’ve managed to bounce back and fire themselves into the top half once again. They’re already starting to resemble a side that isn’t going to worry about a relegation scrap and with this being their first Premier League campaign ever, we’d say that’s quite the accomplishment.

Team News

Pinnock has tested positive for COVID-19 with Toney also being unavailable for this game. Canos is available in the wake of his recent ban with the following players injured: Zanka, Ajer, Raya, Fosu-Henry, Jeanvier and Dasilva.

Manchester United

The days of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are long gone and in their place, we have Ralf Rangnick. He’s only at Old Trafford on an interim basis in an attempt to steady the ship, but it’s not hard to see the impact he’s already been able to have. Nobody is going to expect the world from Manchester United this season but between cup competitions, Europe and a top four push, there’s a lot of intrigue still at play.

Team News

Lindelof likely won’t be risked after complaining of chest pains against Norwich. Matic, Mata, Wan-Bissaka, Varane and Cavani are fitness doubts with Pogba and Martial officially ruled out.

Factors to Consideran

  • Brentford are 10th in the Premier League whereas Man United are 5th.
  • Brentford have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six games.
  • Man United have won four and drawn two of their last six games.
  • Brentford have scored nine goals and conceded 10 in their last six games.
  • Man United have scored nine goals and conceded four in their last six games.

Conclusion

The lively Brentford home crowd is going to cause United some substantial problems but with Rangnick at the helm, we don’t think it’ll intimidate them so much that they can’t get the job done. This is a strong United side that is starting to, slowly but surely, learn how to defend, and they’re also starting to find more confidence in how they go forward. In the end, we expect a narrow 2-1 win for the visitors.

Prediction: Man United win
