Why you should back Manchester United
The Red Devils are winless in their last three matches, but blame cannot be put on their superstar. Cristiano Ronaldo has provided all the offense during its drought, scoring the lone goal in a 3-1 loss at Arsenal and a 1-1 draw at home against Chelsea after the club was shut out at Liverpool. The 37-year-old Portuguese forward leads Manchester United with 17 league goals and has scored each of the five tallies the team has recorded over its last five contests.
Furthermore, Ronaldo has netted eight of the nine goals the Red Devils have produced in their last seven matches, registering a pair of hat tricks in that span. Bruno Fernandes, who scored 18 goals last season, will be eager to reach double digits for the second straight campaign as he ranks second on the Red Devils with nine. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Elanga has recorded just four and two goals, respectively, but both scored in Man United's victory at Brentford earlier this season.
Why you should back Brentford
The Bees are 14th in the standings in their first season in England's top flight since 1946-47, but they've been on fire of late. The club is riding a four-game unbeaten streak (three wins, one draw) and has lost just once in its last seven outings (5-1-1) after enduring a nine-match winless stretch (0-1-8). Brentford has played very well defensively over its last seven games, allowing a total of five goals while posting a pair of clean sheets.
The team has amassed 14 goals over this period, with Ivan Toney being the top contributor. The 26-year-old forward has netted half of his team-leading 12 goals during the seven-game span, providing all the offense in a 3-1 victory against Norwich City on March 5 and a 2-0 triumph over Burnley a week later. Toney, who is second on the Bees with four assists, also tallied in the loss to Man United in January.
