Last meeting

Last season, Manchester United suffered an embarrassing defeat to Brentford at the beginning of the campaign when they were trailing 4-0 at half-time in the Gtech Community Stadium. This setback led to the famous 8-mile run that Erik Ten Hag imposed on his players the following day, even though it was their day off. Later in the season, United managed to secure a 1-0 victory over Brentford at Old Trafford, with Marcus Rashford scoring the winning goal on that occasion.
