Manchester United vs Brentford: TV channel, live stream, team news & prediction

30 April 2022 03:00

Manchester United will hope to keep their top-four hopes alive on Monday with victory over Brentford at Old Trafford.

Ralf Rangnick's men are hanging on by the skin of their teeth after snatching a 1-1 draw with Chelsea last time out, but they will likely need to win each of their last three Premier League games to have any chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League.

The Red Devils could find themselves as many as eight points adrift by the time they play Brentford, who are flying high after a run of three wins and a draw against Chelsea, West Ham, Watford and Tottenham.

If Arsenal beat West Ham on Sunday, nothing less than three points will be good enough for United here.

Here's 90min's preview of the game.

Man Utd team news

After plenty of recent injury setbacks, Rangnick hopes to have both Fred and Edinson Cavani back on the bench, and he also has some optimism that Harry Maguire (illness) and Jesse Lingard (personal reasons) will return as well.

There has been no mention of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, however, who has been out with an unspecified injury. Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw remain out, while Rangnick has also admitted that Jadon Sancho could be out for the remainder of the campaign while he deals with tonsillitis.

Thomas Frank is also hoping to have a few familiar faces back, with both Christian Norgaard and Kristoffer Ajer eligible for selection once again.

Ethan Pinnock, Sergi Canos and Frank Onyeka remain sidelined, and they have been joined in the treatment room by Saman Ghoddos, who twisted his ankle last time out against Tottenham.

Man Utd vs Brentford score prediction

United are supposed to be the better team here, but on current form, Brentford look far stronger.

Frank's men have seen off some top sides in recent weeks, including two sides above United in the table and a third who aren't far off. They won't be scared of travelling to Old Trafford and they'll relish the chance of ending United's European hopes.

With the pressure to perform as high as it's ever been, United must react. Cristiano Ronaldo, unlike his teammates, is in electrifying form right now, and his impact up front could be the difference once it's all said and done.

Prediction: Man Utd 2-1 Brentford
