Brentford enjoyed a mesmerising home victory against Manchester United at Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday. Brentford were looking for a victory following a disappointing 2-2 draw with Leicester City in their previous game. Man U lost 2-1 in the last match they played against Brighton & Hove Albion. As the table looks today, Brentford and Man U currently occupy 3rd and 20th spots in the league, with 4 points and 0 points respectively after 2 matches.

Brentford started strong and were rewarded for their efforts, when Pelenda Da Silva opened the rout, 10 minutes in. The momentum was now with Brentford, who then scored again through a goal from Mathias Jensen, 18 minutes in to establish a 2-0. The Bees looked to have the match under control when they scored again and increased their lead, thanks to a goal from Ben Mee in the 30th minute to establish a 3-0. They then scored again, increasing their advantage thanks to a goal from Bryan Mbeumo at the 35 minute mark, which saw the first half end 4-0. With both teams struggling to produce anything meaningful in the second half though, the match ended 4-0.

Substitutions for Brentford included Vitaly Janelt, Yoane Wissa, Shandon Baptiste, Mads Bech Sorensen and Frank Onyeka for Pelenda Da Silva, Bryan Mbeumo, Mathias Jensen, Aaron Hickey and Christian Norgaard, repectively. Man U brought on Raphael Varane, Tyrell Malacia, Scott Mctominay, Anthony Elanga and Donny Van De Beek, to replace Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Fred, Jadon Sancho and Christian Eriksen.

The referee booked four players from Man U, Harry Maguire, Scott Mctominay, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes.

Brentford will next travel to Fulham, while Man U will face Liverpool at home.
