Ralf Rangnick’s side have picked up just one point in their last three games, although it has been a tough run of fixtures against Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea.
In contrast, Brentford have been in superb form, winning three on the spin against Chelsea, West Ham and Watford before a goalless draw with Tottenham last time out.
United cannot improve their league position of sixth even with a win, while Brentford can jump from 14th to 10th with a surprise victory in Manchester.
