Brentford manager Thomas Frank has explained his big worry as Brentford travel to face Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Manchester United are in dire need of a good performance in the Premier League against Brentford on Saturday afternoon as the club sit 10th in the table.

Erik ten Hag‘s men have lost four of their opening seven fixtures in the league, and many are starting to question if United will finish in this season’s top four, considering their current poor form.

Thomas Frank, however, believes that his Brentford side need to be incredibly wary of United’s need to bounce back, and is worried that this will cause Brentford problems at Old Trafford.

“The flip side is that they need to bounce back and come flying out to do everything they can to beat us,” Frank said when asked about United’s poor form. “There will be pressure to beat Brentford but Man United is a massive club, the pressure is there to win every game.

“I don’t think it makes a difference that they haven’t played that well. I am always in doubt when you meet a team with great form and momentum, whether it’s bad or will that run end.

“It’s a great club, great team, great manager and fantastic players. A big challenge but we look forward to it and we’ll go there believing we can get something out of it.”

The two sides take each other on at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, with Brentford sat just two points behind United, who have suffered back-to-back defeats at their home ground.
