Manchester United are very thirsty for points to compete for a place in the Top 4. Before a Brentford that performed badly in the receptions, coach Ralf Rangnick’s teachers and students are fully capable of leaving with all 3 points after the end. The end of the 17th round of the Premier League match will take place in the middle of this week.
The other side of the field, the home team entered the confrontation today without the backing from history. In the last match between the two teams, Brentford only got a draw against Manchester United, while also having to go into the net to pick up the ball twice. And like the away team, the performance of coach Thomas Frank and his team in recent times is not convincing with only 2 victories in the last 5 matches.
Most remarkable is the weak home record of this team. With the exception of the win against Aston Villa in early January, Brentford has not won in two previous consecutive home matches in the Premier League and both have been failures. This is also the main reason why the home team is diving in the 14th position of 20 teams. It will not be surprising if Brentford is empty-handed tonight at Brentford Community.
After an impressive period of play, Manchester United are losing their form in the last stage. Specifically, in the last 5 matches on all fronts, including the match against Aston Villa in the FA Cup, coach Ralf Rangnick’s teachers and students only won 2 wins, the rest lost 1 and drew 2. Latest, the team 20-time champion of England has just drawn Aston Villa 2-2 in the English Premier League. That defeat has left the Red Devils still in 7th place, and they are also 5 points behind the Top 4.
However, fans should not rush to underestimate the ability of Manchester United to win this match even though today, they have to play away. It should be known that when playing away from home, the Red Devils have only lost 2 matches since the end of October, while winning 3. Even an annoyed Villarreal was subdued by them in the Champions League.
