Brentford v Manchester United: Is it on TV, predicted line-ups and results of last Premier League games?

Brentford’s first Premier League home game of 2022/2023 is a big one.

After a nail-biting opening game to the Premier League season, Brentford play their first home game of the 2022/2023 Premier League season this weekend, screening live on Sky Sports.

Their opening Premier League game saw goals from Josh Dasilva and man of the match Ivan Toney cancel out goals from Leicester City’s Timothy Castagne and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall as the game ended 2-2.

Brentford’s next game is against a former giant in English football, but one that has spent a number of recent seasons trying to capture their glory days - Manchester United.

How did Brentford’s opponent Manchester United fare in the last game?

There’s been a lot of discussion regarding Manchester United’s forthcoming season, with a new manager and a number of high-profile transfer rumblings.

Former Ajax manager Erik ten Haag has already brought in Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez, Tyson Malacia and former Brentford midfielder Christian Erikseen.

But the story of the summer for the Red Devils has been the transfer saga of Barcelona player Frenkie De Jong, who previously played under ten Haag, and the will he/won’t he nature of joining Manchester.

In their opening game, Manchester United lost 2-1 to Brighton last weekend, with both Brighton goals from Pascal Groß

The bigger worry was that the goal for Manchester United came from an own goal from Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister

When are Brentford playing this weekend?
