Brentford vs Manchester United highlights (1-3)

Brentford 1 vs 3 Manchester United highlights 19.1

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick, speaking to BBC MOTD: "The first half we were second best in almost all aspects of the game, sloppy passing, missing 50-50 situations and hardly won any second balls. We were nervous on the counter-attack and were lucky at half-time to have a draw. A few great saves again from David de Gea and we showed a different face in the second half.

"Scott McTominay was exemplary and it was positively contagious to the other players then we could get some counter attacking situations, the second and third goals were really good with assists from Bruno Fernandes. He was not happy with his own decision to chip the ball. It would be more difficult for us it cope if it was 1-1 in that situation.

"We spoke about what we needed to do, raise our demands and standards with regards to our physicality but our wingers would have stayed wider to pin back their wing-backs."

Brentford boss Thomas Frank, speaking to BBC MOTD: "Unbelievably tough to take. Very, very proud of the team and players. First half we absolutely destroyed Man United, one of the biggest clubs in the country, we are a newly promoted team. We were on the front foot, aggressive, we had six chances and should have been up 2-0 and they had zero. It would have been a completely different game.

"A bit of quality and they went 1-0 up and after that is was bit too difficult. The boys kept running, fighting and kept going. Hugely proud especially of the first half.

"They had to step up, the way we destroyed them, they were not particularly happy with that, they were huge favourites before the game. They got a goal and changed the momentum of the game. It tells everything about the players, mentality and attitude that we out ran Man United and any other day we would win.

"Ivan Toney was good today, he had Covid and was unwell for 10 to 14 days and that definitely affected his performances, especially against Aston Villa and Southampton.

"Jonas Lossl did fine, he brought some of that presence and calmness to the team so pleased with that.

"I am only looking at the next game and to end as high as possible. I am hugely disappointed not to grab the win against a top team.

"I hate losing, especially after performing fantastically."

Brentford vs Manchester United . Score: 1-3.
