The 2022-23 Premier League season continues this weekend as Manchester United make the trip down south to face Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium. The Erik ten Hag era got off to the worst possible start last time out as they slumped to a loss on home soil against Brighton and Hove Albion.
Though the Dutchman stated that his rebuild will take time, the Red Devils remain unaccustomed to suffering prolonged struggles for results, and they will need to burst out of the gates this weekend against the Bees, particularly if they are to improve on a tough 2021-22 campaign

Thomas Frank's Bees were one of the surprise packages of the season last term, on their return to the top-flight of English football, and even if they ultimately faded mid-season towards the risk of a relegation dogfight, Christian Eriksen helped steer them to safety upon his return to the game.
But the Denmark star has headed to today's opponents now, leaving the hosts in need of a balancing act in their creative midfield. They certainly still have the stars to cause trouble however - and they'll hope they can deliver a big result today after an opening draw with Leicester.
Predicted Brentford starting XI: Raya; Hickey, Jansson, Mee, Henry; Janelt, Norgaard, Dasilva; Mbuemo, Toney, Wissa.
|Position||Man Utd roster|
|Goalkeepers||De Gea, Heaton|
|Defenders||Lindelöf, Bailly, Jones, Maguire, Martínez, Malacia, Varane, Dalot, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Williams, Tuanzebe, Mengi|

|Ronaldo, Martial, Rashford, Diallo, Sancho, Elanga, Chong, Shoretire, Garnacho|
A solid pre-season tour across the world suggested that, with the right purchases, Manchester United might be finally ready to turn the corner under Erik ten Hag - but last weekend's defeat to Brighton proved that it was very much the same old scene at Old Trafford.
Questions over the placement of several key stars - the Fred-Scot McTominay combination, Harry Maguire's armband, Cristiano Ronaldo's continued bid for freedom - coupled with a poor transfer window will not have helped their case, but the talent remains there to do something special.
Predicted Man Utd starting XI: De Gea; Dalot, Maguire, Martinez, Shaw; Eriksen, Fred, Fernandes; Sancho, Ronaldo, Rashford.
