Man United vs Brentford: Premier League preview

The Red Devils have won just two of their last 11 games in all competitions, a run which continued with a fortunate draw at home to Chelsea on Thursday night.

Cristiano Ronaldo saved United a point to keep their faint hopes of a top-four finish alive, although fighting West Ham for a spot in the Europa League appears to be of bigger concern.

Brentford meanwhile held Tottenham last time out and could not be blamed for being disappointed with the draw, as it ended a three-game winning run which featured victories over Chelsea and West Ham.
