Brentford vs. Manchester United: Time, TV channel, stream, betting odds for Erik ten Hag’s first Premier League away match

Despite their struggles, United are bookmakers’ favorites to secure their first win under Ten Hag, making Brentford a value bet.

Brentford’s only defeat in their last five home games in 2021/22 was a last-minute goal from Leeds in a game that meant far more to the visitors than Frank’s side. They had kept four consecutive clean sheets at home prior to this game and won three times during the run.

In the first meetings between the sides since 1975, United won 3-1 at Brentford in January and 3-0 in the second leg at Old Trafford in May.
