Confirmed Man Utd line-up vs Brentford

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has named his starting line-up for tonight’s Premier League clash against Brentford on the road.

The Red Devils are currently on 47 points after 28 games into the league campaign and they have much work to do to qualify for the Champions League.

As things stand, the club are 12 points adrift of fourth-placed Aston Villa in the table while they are nine points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who are fifth.

United have two games in hand over Villa and one over Spurs, but they must beat the Bees at the Gtech Community Stadium to stay alive in the top four race.

Ahead of the game, Ten Hag has opted to name an unchanged XI from the 4-3 FA Cup quarter-final win over Liverpool before the international break.

Andre Onana will start between the sticks with Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bissaka forming the four-man backline.

In front of them, it will be Scott McTominay and Kobbie Mainoo in the centre of the park with Bruno Fernandes starting from the number 10 role.

In attack, Alejandro Garnacho and Marcus Rashford will start out wide with Rasmus Hojlund leading the attack in the Premier League after some time.

There is plenty of good news on the substitutes’ bench with Lisandro Martinez, Harry Maguire and Casemiro all fit after recovering from respective injuries.

Confirmed Man Utd line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Brentford: Onana; Dalot, Varane, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Mainoo; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund.

United have seen Villa and Spurs capitalise and win their respective games this weekend. The club must respond by beating Thomas Frank’s side on the road tonight.

It won’t be a straightforward contest as the west London club are a defensively stubborn opposition. The Red Devils need to capitalise on the chances created on goal.
