Manchester United vs Brentford: predicted lineup as £85m winger is all set to return

Manchester United

Manchester United are going to face Brentford on Saturday afternoon at Old Trafford. Also, they will be much desperate to bounce back from a crushing defeat in the Champions League to Galatasaray and a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace in front of their home crowd. Now we’ll analyse about the predicted lineup of Manchester United vs Brentford.

Recent formations of Man United:

Out of possession, Ten Hag has preferred to use a 4-1-4-1 set-up to protect his defensive lineup. This has, however, had the adverse effect in many games of leaving Casemiro isolated. He is, henceforth, forced to cover two attacking players who often run inside the channel between the full-backs and centre-backs. 

When in possession, United push forward into quick transitional attacks in a 4-3-3. When play slows down, they often struggle to break down deep-lying defences. This particular thing was put into limelight by an impotent display against Crystal Palace last weekend. 

After seven Premier League games, the Red Devils sit in 10th place on nine points. Roy Hodgson’s side were the fourth to beat United. A loss to the Brentford would be the continuance of the streak of their third consecutive league loss at home. This was one of the dreadful starts in United history, which hasn’t happened at Old Trafford since February 1979. 

Man Utd injury updates:

United will have a key player available and “ready for a start” according to Erik Ten Hag. This happens as the £85 million right winger Antony returns to the playing squad as the team dropped him earlier due to some harassment charges fined on him.

Argentinian star Lisandro Martinez remains sidelined after causing further damage to his meniscus. However, his return date is stil unknown.

At left-back, Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia and loanee Sergio Reguilon have all been ruled out for the near future, with the latter expected to return later this month. Right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is unlikely to return from his hamstring injury until November. So, they don’t currently have any proper left backs. The only remaining option is to play either Dalot or Amrabat as the temporary left back.

Predicted lineup of Manchester United vs Brentford:

Prediceted lineup of Manchester United vs Brentford consists of

Onana; Dalot, Varane, Lindelof, Amrabat; Casemiro, Mount, Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund. We expect Antony in the squad in place of Hannibal Mebjri.
