ManUnited vs Brentford LIVE !!1 min read
Erik ten Hag faces a number of selection dilemmas ahead of Manchester United’s game against Brentford as they look to return to winning ways in the Premier League. Despite Aaron Wan-Bissaka returning to fitness to rival Diogo Dalot, the back five is likely to be untouched, with Lisandro Martinez returning to the starting XI after being replaced during the second half at St James’ Park.
In midfield, the absence of Casemiro due to suspension continues to be felt, with Scott McTominay and Marcel Sabitzer starting against Newcastle. However, Rio Ferdinand has advised Ten Hag to consider starting Fred, who he believes brings energy, sacrifice, and tenacity to the team. Bruno Fernandes is expected to be deployed as the No.10 in front of them.
On the flanks, Marcus Rashford and Antony are both expected to start, while there are reports that Ten Hag is growing impatient with the ineffective Jadon Sancho. Wout Weghorst’s struggle to score may also lead to Anthony Martial starting the game. Ten Hag has warned that unless players match certain standards, they will be left out of his side, and is looking for determination, passion, and desire from his players.
