Rico Henry remains sidelined for the long term.
Kevin Schade, Shandon Baptiste, Ben Mee, Mikkel Damsgaard, and Josh Dasilva are undergoing treatment.
This match is crucial for Manchester United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, especially after the team’s recent losses. With five defeats in their last seven matches in all competitions, the pressure is mounting.
Brentford, known to be a challenging team to play against, has recently shown strong defense against teams like Arsenal and Newcastle.
It is expected that Brentford will play defensively and try to capitalize on counter-attacks against Manchester United.
Rasmus Hojlund Spotlight
Rasmus Hojlund, the Danish striker, has been in form, scoring twice in the recent match against Galatasaray. Although he hasn’t scored in the Premier League yet, there is a strong belief that he might do so in the upcoming game.
Brentford’s defense will have their work cut out trying to contain him, given his current confidence and form.
