Manchester United host Brentford in matchday 35 of Premier League 2021-22 at Old Trafford on Tuesday, May 3. The match will kick off at 12:30 AM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Manchester United could welcome back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Fred and Jesse Lingard for this fixture. The Red Devils have received a timely boost given they have already lost Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba and Harry Maguire to injuries.
Brentford, on the other hand, have now four first-team players on the treatment table. The latest player to join is Saman Ghoddos, who twisted his ankle in last weekend's 0-0 draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester United vs Brentford prediction and tips for Premier League 2021-22
Manchester United are backed by the odds to win this fixture. The Red Devils’ advantage in the head-to-head record against Brentford and the fact that they haven't lost any of their last seven Premier League games at the Theatre of Dreams is why the odds of victory are in their favour.
Brentford, however, have the tools to make it a nervy affair for Manchester United at their own yard. The stellar form of Christian Eriksen in recent weeks has aided the Bees’ strong results and he will be in focus when taking on the United defence.
