Man Utd predicted XI vs Brentford- Team news as Elanga details 'double SIUUU' with Ronaldo

Published: 19:31, 1 May 2022 | Updated: 22:55, 2 May 2022

Manchester United play host to Brentford in the Premier League on Monday night looking to consolidate their position in the top six (8pm kick-off, UK time).

As things stand Ralf Rangnick’s men occupy sixth with three games to go, but West Ham are hot on their heels, just three points adrift with a superior goal difference. So, the onus is very much on the Red Devils to avoid a slip-up against a Brentford side who are unbeaten in four having taken down Chelsea, the Hammers and claimed a point off Tottenham in that run. It’s a potentially awkward match-up in this crucial juncture of the season.

Man Utd team news vs Brentford: Sancho could miss rest of season

  • Ins: Jesse Lingard
  • Outs: Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba, Harry Maguire, Jadon Sancho
  • Doubts: Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Fred

Rangnick will have to make do without Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba and Harry Maguire through injury for Monday’s visit of Brentford, as well as Jadon Sancho, who is currently struggling with tonsillitis — and could potentially miss the rest of the campaign. Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Fred both face late fitness tests, while Jesse Lingard is expected to return for Monday.

In other news, Anthony Elanga has recently explained his ‘double SIUUU’ celebration with Cristiano Ronaldo following the Portuguese’s opening goal against Norwich last month, saying it was a “special” moment, even if he didn’t execute the trademark move properly.

He told Man Utd’s official website: “That was an exciting time, the double SIUUU!

“I didn’t expect it. He said: ‘Let’s do it’. I said: ‘Fair enough’ but, if you see in the video, I didn’t really get into the air properly! But I managed to do it anyway and it was a special moment.

“He is someone I look up to and speak to and ask for advice and stuff. He is a special player to work with.”

On his recent link-up with Ronaldo, he added: “We spoke about it the day before actually. How we were going to work in terms of pressing.

“If you get an opportunity, to look up. If he gets an opportunity, to look up for me, as I’ll be in the box or he will be in the box.”
