Manchester United snap tricky path

Manchester United is aiming to finally put a stop in their tough campaign as they welcome Brentford at home. This meeting will be at April 6, 2023, at 3:00 AM (GMT+8). Man United is hoping to finally end their three-game winning streak in the tournament. On their last match, they suffered a 2-0 loss against a revenge-minded Newcastle United. They are now aiming to bounce back from this loss in order to earn a top four spot. Meanwhile, Brentford is looking to add more points in their name for more chances of climbing the league table. Unlike Man United, Brentford is from a 3-3 thriller draw against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Prior to this match, these two teams have met for 16 times only, and it was the hosts who has an advantage. From those 16 meetings, the hosts took home eight wins, as opposed to the visitor’s six wins. Additionally, when it comes to home games, the hosts are playing well against the visitors. They won their last three league games against the visitors, which is why they are confident coming into this game. As for the visitors, they were able to record a 4-0 win against the hosts earlier this season. With that, they are looking to achieve the same result coming into this match.

Man United is at the fifth of the league table with 50 points, but are eyeing for more wins as they aim for a spot in the top four. An additional three points for them could bring them at the third of the league table with 53 points. Additionally, they also want to end their losing run, so they will not drop off the top teams in the league. This is not impossible as they have been fairly impressive this season. However, it is unfortunate that they suffered a 2-0 loss against Newcastle United on their last meeting. With that, they are hopeful for chances of winning in this match. Man United needs to step up to earn a spot in the top four of the league.

Fortunately, the injury list for Man United gets shorter, as Raphael Varane, Marcus, Rashford, Marcel Sabitzer, and Anthony Martial are all returning for Man United. However, Alejando Garnacho, Tom Heaton, and Christian Eriksen remains to be unavailable in this match. They will be joined by Donny van de Beeks, and Casemiro, who is still serving his game ban.

Brentford is currently in the ninth of the league table with 43 points across their names, with aims of climbing up to the seventh spot. A win in this match could give them an additional three points, which is crucial for them. Their consistency this season might be the key for them to get a victory in this game. On their last match, they recorded a 3-3 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion. Coming into this game, they are looking to take extra efforts to be able to win in this match. They have been exceptional this season, and are now looking to pull of another upset in this game.

Brentford is fortunate as they welcome back Shandon Baptiste from his one-game ban, but Vitaly Janelt is a doubt in this match. Additionally, Kristoffer Ajer, and Keane Lewis-Potter are unlikely to play here due to their injuries.
