Man Utd enter this latest fixture winless in three and could potentially find themselves down in seventh, should West Ham capitalise on their game in hand against Arsenal on Sunday. It means there is still a blanket of uncertainty shrouding Old Trafford as to whether Erik ten Hag will be competing in Europe next term.

There are still many imponderables in the Premier League landscape this campaign as to which positions will actually guarantee Europe. With Leicester and West Ham still in the semi-finals of the Conference League and the Europa League respectively, there is an element of doubt about the current Premier League table.

Still, Man Utd will not want to worry about events elsewhere, instead focusing on their own game. A draw with Chelsea in midweek does, though, mean they can now only match their worst-ever points tally in Premier League history, but only if they win their final three games, adding extra pressure to Ralf Rangnick.

But the interim boss takes on a Brentford side very much on the up. Thomas Frank’s men are unbeaten in four and have lost just one of their last seven, claiming huge scalps against Chelsea and West Ham in that time and most recently drawing with Tottenham. This should be a fiercely competitive match-up.

Man Utd vs Brentford match stats

Cristiano Ronaldo has now been involved in 24 goals across his previous 18 Premier League games against promoted sides (18 goals, six assists), most recently securing a hat-trick in Man Utd’s 3-2 win against Norwich. In fact, he’s only ever failed to either score or assist a goal in just two of those 18 games —but one of was in the reverse fixture against Brentford.

As for the Bees, they have their own difference-maker. Ivan Toney’s goals have been worth nine points to Brentford in the Premier League this season, which places him second only to Ronaldo for more valuable strikes. Elsewhere, since his first Premier League start for Brentford in March, no player has created more chances for the club than Christian Eriksen (13). They are also unbeaten in all six games in which the Dane has started.
