Manchester United vs Brentford odds
*Odds correct as of 14:15 on October 5
Erik ten Hag will be hoping his Manchester United side can get back on track after an incredibly poor start to the season. The Red Devils have picked up just nine points from their opening seven matches and have suffered five defeats in the last seven matches, so a win is a must here. This is Manchester United’s worst-ever start to a Premier League season after seven games, last enduring an even worse start to a top-flight campaign in 1989-90 (7 points after 7 games).
After going 21 Premier League games at home unbeaten, Manchester United have now lost each of their last two league games at Old Trafford to Brighton and Crystal Palace, losing back-to-back Premier League home games for the first time since November 2021 under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Brentford, meanwhile, have also had an equally poor start to the campaign, winning just one of their seven matches (D4, L2). losing three and drawing two of their last five matches across all competitions. The Bees have won just one of the five Premier League games in which they’ve taken the lead this season (D4), drawing each of their last three such matches. Indeed, no side has dropped more points from winning positions in the Premier League this term than the Bees (8).
