Manchester United vs Brentford will be taking place at Old Trafford tonight in their final home encounter of the season.
Despite the fact that their Champions League chances have all but vanished before of the match, the Red Devils will be looking to finish their home season on a high note.
Ralf Rangnick’s side are eight points behind fourth-placed Arsenal, and a remarkable turnaround is required for United to finish in the top four at the conclusion of the season.
A number of players are expected to be restricted to the bench for the match against Brentford.
With tonsillitis, Jadon Sancho missed the 1-1 draw with Chelsea last time out and is poised to be restricted once more, with Rangnick speculating that he could be out for the rest of the season.
Manchester United Starting Lineup
De Gea, Dalot, Lindelof, Varane, Telles, McTominay, Matic, Elanga, Fernandes, Mata, Ronaldo.
Brentford Starting Lineup
Toney, Mbeumo, Eriksen, Norgaard, Janelt, Henry, Bech, Jansson, Roersl, Ajer, David Raya.
Harry Maguire, Paul Pogba, and Luke Shaw have all been ruled out due to long-term injuries. The issues persisted across the team, with Edinson Cavani and Aaron Wan-Bissaka both missing the match against the Blues.
Rangnick provided an early update on the state of his squad following the game, with some players expected to return but others unlikely to play again for the duration of the season.
“It appears that Jadon will be sidelined for the remainder of the season due to tonsillitis, thus he will be unavailable against Brentford.”
Edinson Cavani is expected to return to training tomorrow [Friday], but given that he has been out for the past four or five weeks, is he truly a player capable of facing Brentford? Probably not to begin with, but at the very least from the sidelines.
“Apart from that, we’ll have to see.” Jesse was absent today for personal and family reasons, as was Harry Maguire [who also missed the game against Chelsea].
I’m hoping to see some of those players tonight.”
Cavani and Fred have both been photographed boarding the United team bus before of the game, which is good news for the Red Devils.
Youngsters Alejandro Garnacho and Alvaro Fernandez have also been included.
