Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Brentford


In the words of Hank Williams Jr., “are you ready for some football?! A Monday night party!?” Yes, Manchester United will host Premier League newbies in MNF, a concept that the British borrowed from us Americans. They even kept the same name!

So let’s get to predicting who will be in the United first team for this one, because “the teams are ready, the crowd is psyched, cuz all my rowdy friends are coming over tonight!”

United will be without the services of several key players in this one, including Jadon Sancho, who may be shut down for the remainder. There weren’t a ton of reasons to be keep watching this team, for the rest of the run in this term, but he was certainly a big reason to keep tuning in.

So much for that. Bummer.
