Man United Starting XI Prediction at Brentford FC


Manchester United remain a mess, but there is still a lot of potential there. That’s provided the team can find some real semblance of team chemistry. The Premier League title race is over now, and they have been out of the mix for some time, but you still have plenty to play for.

However, nothing salvageable will come of this season unless interim manager Ralf Rangnick can figure out his lineup. He needs to find the winning hand that works for him and his side.

United must stop settling for draws. The top four is still there for the taking this season, but they must step up and take it.
