Brentford will host Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
The Bees started their 2022-23 Premier League campaign in an entertaining way, coming from a 2-2 deficit against Leicester City on Sunday thanks to Josh Dasilva’s late equalizing goal.
United, under new boss Erik ten Hag, endured a much more difficult opening game, falling in a hugely disappointing home defeat to Brighton at Old Trafford, with Seagulls midfielder Pascal Gross taking a match-winning brace.
United won both encounters between these two sides a year ago, winning 3-1 in London before taking a 3-0 win in Manchester.
Both will want to have their first three points on the board when they meet in West London on Saturday night.
Here’s everything you need to know:
When is the game?
The competition will take place on Saturday 13 August with kick-off at Brentford Community Stadium at 5.30 pm.
What TV channel is it on?
The match will be broadcast on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League.
What’s the team news?
Mikkel Damsgaard, who arrived from Sampdoria this week, could get a first taste of Premier League life this weekend, but may be held in reserve by boss Thomas Frank.
Sergi Canos (hamstring), Ethan Pinnock (knee) and Kristoffer Ajer (hamstring) all missed opening weekend.
For the visitors, Cristiano Ronaldo is pushing for a start after coming off the bench last week with Anthony Martial (hamstring) still out.
Raphael Varane is another who could come back to the team after missing out on defeat to Brighton.
