  • Rasmus Hojlund has scored in each of his past six Premier League games.

Brentford’s struggles against the top six to continue?

After a topsy turvy campaign, things seem to be looking up for Manchester United.

With nine wins from their last 12 matches across all competitions, including a 4-3 extra-time victory over rivals Liverpool to set up an FA Cup semi-final against Coventry, Erik ten Hag’s side are starting to put things together as we come into the business end of the season. Since they have been able to field Rasmus Hojlund, Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho in the same XI, the goals have started to flow and results have followed.

Currently sitting sixth, nine points behind Aston Villa with a game in hand, work still needs to be done if they are going to secure a guaranteed Champions League spot for next season, starting with a victory over struggling Brentford.

After an impressive 2022/23 campaign, the Bees have struggled so far this season and are only five points clear of the relegation places after Nottingham Forest’s four point deduction. In 2024, they have picked up just two victories across all competitions and are currently on a six game run without a win, losing five of them.

Even worse for Thomas Frank is their poor record against the bigger sides so far this campaign, picking up just one point from their 10 matches against the current top six in the division, with that coming on the opening day of the season against Tottenham.

Brentford vs Man Utd match tip

Rasmus Hojlund to score anytime @ 29/20 with Midnite 

Rasmus Hojlund made his return from injury at the weekend, starting Manchester United’s FA Cup win over Liverpool. Although he didn’t score in the 71 minutes that he was on the pitch, it was a good chance for Hojlund to experience some match time before the international break. The return of the Premier League will also see Hojlund looking to continue his fine scoring form in the competition. After failing to net in any of his first 14 Premier League games, Hojlund has now scored in each of his past six in the competition, bagging seven goals during that run.

Man Utd are favourites for this game, but it’s closer than some might expect. The Red Devils have been good on the road of late, with a 3-1 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad ending a six-game winning run away from home across all competitions. Brentford have also lost seven of their past nine Premier League games, though five of those defeats did come away from home.
