Brentford vs Man Utd result: Abject visitors escape with a point after late equalizer in Ajer

Good evening and welcome to our live coverage of Brentford vs Manchester United, which starts at 8pm and serves as the closing offering of today's eight top-flight matches.

All seven of today's matches feature plenty of goals and excitement, so let's hope the best of the day's Premier League action has been saved for this evening match in West London.

Precisely in this match at the Gtech Stadium last season, hosts Brentford defeated the 13-time Premier League champions in a 4-0 thrashing in August 2022.

How manager Thomas Frank would welcome another memorable win over Man United tonight, or any win at all, given Brentford's dismal league form at the moment.

Their disappointing 2-1 defeat away to Burnley before the international break meant a seventh defeat in their last nine league matches.

What's more is that no team has earned fewer points from their last 18 Premier League games than Brentford's 10, putting them on 15.e and five points above the relegation zone, albeit one point better off than after their last league defeat, thanks to Nottingham Forest's four-point deduction last week.

Ivan Toney's re-finding the back of the net will certainly be crucial to a change in Brentford's fortunes as the 28-year-old is winless in his last five league matches, although the striker did score his first international goal on Tuesday for England in their 2-2 draw against Belgium.

Meanwhile, Manchester United return to first-team action for the first time since their epic 4-3 FA Cup quarter-final home victory against Liverpool almost a fortnight ago.

Tonight's match marks the first of two tough tests for United in West London, with Erik ten Hag's men traveling to Chelsea in midweek after this encounter, so they will be keen to get maximum points from their double-header in the capital to boost their hopes. of qualifying for the Champions League.

With English clubs looking set to secure a fifth qualifying place for next season's edition, Man United now have an added incentive to finish their league season strongly in the hope of overcoming their six-point deficit to fifth-placed Tottenham. , as well as a vastly inferior goal difference.

On the other hand, another defeat at the Gtech Stadium would not only lead to a return of the sirens that tend to signal yet another crisis at Manchester United, but it would also mark their twelfth anniversary.e Premier League defeat of the season, a club record in the Premier League era.

Team news will follow soon.
