Premier League announce Manchester United vs Brentford match officials list



| Last Updated:


Manchester United host Brentford on Saturday at Old Trafford as they aim to pick up their fourth win in the Premier League.

The Bees most recently managed a 1-1 draw away to Nottingham Forest, while the Red Devils lost 3-2 to Galatasaray in their midweek Champions League match.

Even Rasmus Højlund‘s brace wasn’t enough to save United from a defeat to Galatasaray at Old Trafford, making it the first time the Turkish team ever won on English soil.

With the score tied at 2-2 entering the final 15 minutes, a reckless pass from Andrè Onana towards Casemiro went straight to Dries Mertens prompting the latter towards fouling him in the box and receiving a straight red.

Both Onana and Casemiro may have heaved sighs of relief when Mauro Icardi missed a penalty. However, the Argentine banished his 12-yard woes to deftly dink the ball over Onana a few minutes later.

Erik ten Hag‘s side have endured an awful start to their season with six losses already at the time of writing.
