Erik ten Hag lost his first Premier League game in charge of United in a 2-1 defeat at home to Brighton last weekend. This laid bare all of the issues the Dutch coach is trying to solve.
Man United were all over the place defensively, had little creativity in midfield and lacked cutting edge up top. That is a lot to try and sort out whilst at the same time trying to usher in a new possession-based style and sign new players to fit that system.
Manchester United possible XI: De Gea; Dalot, Maguire, L Martinez, Shaw; Eriksen, Fred, Fernandes; Sancho, Ronaldo, Rashford
Looking at Brentford, the team continue to battle on as Thomas Frank’s side fought back from 2-0 down to grab a draw at Leicester City on the opening weekend of the season. The Bees continue to fly under the radar and are determined to make sure there is no Sophomore slump for them this season as they’ve made yet more savvy pickups this summer.
Brentford possible XI: Raya; Hickey, Jansson, Mee, Henry; Janelt, Norgaard, Dasilva; Mbuemo, Toney, Wissa
