Manchester United have confirmed that Rasmus Højlund will start his third game in a row at Old Trafford as the club play Brentford in the Premier League.
The club have suffered back-to-back defeats at Old Trafford, losing to both Crystal Palace and Galatasaray, and will be looking to get back on track on Saturday afternoon.
Both United and Brentford have had poor starts to the season with Ten Hag and Thomas Frank suffering from injury crises, and they are separated by just two points in the table, with United on nine and Brentford on seven.
“Yeah, I think it’s always a tough opponent and they have a very good spirit,” Ten Hag told club media about Brentford ahead of the game. They fight and they want to come into that fight in every game. So they are always highly motivated, the team, and already always a very good set-up.
“So it’s going to be tough and we have to play our best and but it’s about us. If we get that performance in, we get the right level, we have a very good chance to win this game.”
The line-ups for the fixture have been confirmed.
Starting XI: Onana, Lindelöf, Maguire, Evans, Daloy, Amrabat, Casemiro, Mount, Fernandes, Højlund, Rashford.
Subs: Bayındır, Eriksen, Hannibal, McTominay, Pellistri, Van de Beek, Antony, Garnacho, Martial.
Starting XI: Strakosha, Roerslev, Ajer, Pinnock, Collins, Hickey, Norgaard, Janelt, Jensen, Mbuemo, Wissa.
