Team News: Brentford
The Brentford boss Thomas Frank has no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match with a completely healthy group available for selection.
In all likelihood, The Bees will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation in the match and select David Raya, Aaron Hickey, Pontus Jansson, Ben Mee, Rico Henry, Mathias Jensen, Christian Noergaard, Vitaly Janelt, Bryan Mbeumo, Ivan Toney and Yoane Wissa.
Team News: Manchester United
Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Anthony Martial (Hamstring Injury) and Facundo Pellistri (Ankle Injury) can’t be considered.
There’s a good chance that The Red Devils seem most likely to begin the game with a 4-3-3 formation using David De Gea, Diogo Dalot, Harry Maguire, Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen, Fred, Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho, Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford.
We’re inclined to think that Brentford will have to play well to be putting a goal past this Manchester United lineup who we think will score at least once to put them ahead.
We’re therefore predicting a narrow 0-1 win for Manchester United when the referee blows for full-time.
We’ll see what happens.
