Last season was a disappointing one for Manchester United as it wrapped up with a pair of shutout losses to finish sixth in the standings with a 16-10-12 record. The Red Devils had no problems against Brentford, however, as they outscored the Bees 6-1 in winning their two meetings. Manchester United looks to continue that success in the series when they visit Brentford on Saturday for a 2022-23 English Premier League matchup. The Red Devils began the campaign with a 2-1 loss against Brighton & Hove Albion, while the Bees rallied for a 2-2 draw versus Leicester City in their opener.

Why you should back Manchester United
Despite his transfer request, Cristiano Ronaldo remains a member of the Red Devils and will be expected to produce after leading the team with 18 goals last season. The 37-year-old Portuguese superstar recorded one shot in 38 minutes off the bench against Brighton and likely will see more playing time on Saturday. Ronaldo tallied in Manchester United's 3-0 victory against Brentford on May 2.
The Red Devils have other offensive weapons, including midfielders Bruno Fernandes and Fred. The 27-year-old Fernandes registered 10 goals and six assists last season to finish second on the team in both categories. Fred set a career high with four tallies in 2021-22 after netting a total of two over his first three campaigns with Manchester United.
Why you should back Brentford
The Bees dug deep in the second half against Leicester City last Sunday to earn a point after falling behind 2-0. Forward Ivan Toney began the comeback in the 62nd minute and midfielder Josh Dasilva knotted the match in the 86th. The 26-year-old Toney led Brentford with 12 goals in 2021-22, with one being the team's only tally in its two matches against Manchester United.
Toney finished second on the Bees last season with five assists, two behind forward Bryan Mbuemo. Brentford will be looking for a contribution from Yoane Wissa, who was second on the team with seven goals last campaign. The 25-year-old forward did not land on the scoresheet against Leicester City but ended the 2021-22 season, his first in the Premier League, with two goals and an assist over his final three contests.
