Brentford predicted lineup vs Manchester United - Premier League

30 April 2022 03:00

Brentford will look to collect another impressive scalp from their good run of form as they travel to face Manchester United on Monday.

Last weekend's draw with Tottenham followed consecutive wins over Chelsea, West Ham and Watford, with Brentford seemingly hell-bent on making a massive impact on the outcome of the table at both ends.

Another positive result against United could end the Red Devils' European hopes if results elsewhere go against them, but Brentford's priority will be picking up the points needed to secure a top-half finish in their debut season in the Premier League - a massive accomplishment.

Here's how Thomas Frank could set up.

David Raya (GK) - Raya has conceded just 20 goals in 20 games this season, and he'll hope to drop that average down even further over the coming weeks.

Kristoffer Ajer (CB) - Ajer missed the Spurs draw with a head injury but should be fine to start once again.

Pontus Jansson (CB) - Club captain Jansson has played nearly every minute possible this season.

Mads Bech Sorensen (CB) - Ethan Pinnock is still out injured so Mads Bech will be needed at centre-back again.

Mads Roerslev Rasmussen (RM) - No Sergi Canos or Saman Ghoddos for the visitors, so Mads Roerslev will be out on the right.

Christian Eriksen (CM) - Eriksen might only have a few games left in Brentford colours amid interest from former club Tottenham.

Christian Norgaard (CM) - Norgaard has shaken off his own injury issue and should be healthy enough to start.

Vitaly Janelt (CM) - A regular in this second half of the season, Janelt will almost definitely start for Frank in midfield

Rico Henry (LM) - Equally as comfortable as a left-back or a wing-back, Henry has impressed on his first season in the top flight.

Bryan Mbeumo (ST) - Mbeumo has been hugely impressive in his first season in the top flight and deserves far more than the four goals he has registered.

Ivan Toney (ST) - The Bees' top scorer is a wanted man and rightly so - he too has been terrific.
