Brentford v Man United team news

Rangnick has already offered plenty of insights into his options for this game.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has already been ruled out and so has Jesse Lingard. Paul Pogba is back in training but will not play a part here.

Anthony Martial has travelled with the squad while Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford have returned to training too. All three could play here.

Harry Maguire was on the bench at Villa Park, and could make his return to the side in this one.

Eric Bailly is away at the Africa Cup of Nations but Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay will return from suspension, having been ruled out at Villa Park.

Our prediction: Brentford v United

United were better away from home against Villa, before showcasing familiar vulnerability to let three points turn into one.

Brentford will be a threat with their high-tempo style and attacking wing-backs, but if United carry their levels from most of the first 70 minutes at Villa through the whole game here, they should win.

It will not be easy, and as we mentioned above, Rangnick is still waiting for his side to put together a complete performance from start to finish.

The returning forwards, especially Ronaldo, would be helpful, although Anthony Elanga deserves to keep his place regardless.

Our prediction: Brentford 1-2 Manchester United
