Manchester United take on Brentford at the Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday (today) and hopefully Erik ten Hag’s side will bounce back to get their first wins of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
Brentford began the 2022/23 season with a come-from-behind 2-2 draw against Leicester City.

The Foxes had taken a two-goal lead thanks to goals from Timothy Castagne and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall before Ivan Toney and Joshua Dasilva earned the Bees a point.
But while it was not quite the start of the 2021/22 campaign, Thomas Frank will be satisfied with last week’s performance.
On the other hand, the optimism surrounding the onset of the Erik ten Hag era disappeared in no time as Manchester United went down 2-1 at home against Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend.
United did not have their own player finding the back of the net, and the game showed the enormity of ten Hag’s task at Manchester United.
The corresponding fixture last season ended in a 3-1 win for the Red Devils, with Ivan Toney scoring a late consolation goal for Brentford.
