The match ended 2-1 in favour of brighton.
Brentford had a fantastic season in the Premier League last year, finishing 13th with 46 points from 38 games, 11 points above the relegation zone. They will now be trying to stay at this level of football.
In the league last year, Man United triumphed in both meetings between the two teams, first winning 3-1 in London and then 3-0 at Old Trafford near the conclusion of the season.
In their season opener against Brighton last weekend, Man United would have hoped to get off to the best possible start. However, the Red Devils lost 2-1, with Pascal Gross’s two goals in the first half being crucial for the Seagulls, who deservedly earned the three points in Manchester.
Erik ten Hag, the team’s new head coach, is under pressure to lead them to victory on Saturday, especially because they have a Premier League match at home against Liverpool coming up in nine days.
Man United had a strong preseason, but their problems from last season were evident against Brighton. If they want to compete for a spot in the top four again after Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur all won last weekend, they will need to make significant improvements.
Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, and Christian Eriksen, the club’s three most recent additions, all played against Brighton. The club is still looking to add more players, with Adrien Rabiot of Juventus and Cody Gakpo of PSV Eindhoven the most recent to join.
Since February 1938, Man United has defeated Brentford twice in Premier League play. Ten Hag will undoubtedly have his team motivated for this match because a loss would put the team in a very precarious position before their upcoming match against fierce rivals Liverpool.
Man United is now a very challenging side to back, but we just have a feeling for the Red Devils. The players should be motivated to recover from what was a disappointing loss to Brighton.
