On Wednesday night, Manchester United will host Brentford at Old Trafford in an effort to end a three-game streak in which neither team has won or scored in the Premier League.

The Bees were beaten three times in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion, while the Red Devils were soundly defeated 2-0 by Newcastle United over the weekend.

Man United will have played two fewer games and, as a result, still control their Champions League fate at this crucial time. If Tottenham Hotspur wins against Everton, though, Man United might find themselves out of the Champions League spots entirely by the end of play on Monday.

It is fair to say that Ten Hag’s team somewhat neglected their top-flight responsibilities before the international break because the Europa League and FA Cup were taking center stage. This week, the Red Devils may fail to score in four straight Premier League games for the first time in their history.

Although they have played one more game than the Merseyside giants, Brentford only have two wins to their name from their last seven Premier League games, losing to relegation candidates Everton and Leicester City during that time. A point was enough to move them up to seventh place above a disjointed Liverpool team.

But, the Bees’ defeat at Goodison Park was their lone Premier League loss in their previous 16, and few Red Devils supporters will need to be reminded of the 4-0 humiliation they suffered at the Gtech Community Stadium in the summer.

The Bees followed it up with an outstanding 2-1 victory at Manchester City’s stadium; no team has won away at both Manchester clubs in the same season since Arsenal in 1991; nonetheless, Frank supervised a dismal 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford toward the conclusion of the previous campaign.
