The Erik ten Hag era got off to a disastrous start for Manchester United on Sunday as Brighton crushed the Red Devils 2-1. Now it’s time for United to get redemption as they take on Brentford in West London.

Cristiano Ronaldo was on the bench for the first 52 minutes of the opening weekend loss, whereas Anthony Martial, who was the top scorer in pre-season, missed out through injury.

The Bees will offer another tough test this weekend and they were resilient on Sunday afternoon as they battled back from a 2-0 deficit to draw 2-2 with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

Josh Dasilva, who spent much of last season out with a hip injury, came off the bench to earn his team a well-earned point. Now he and Thomas Frank’s side be hoping to build on that with a strong performance on home soil.

Here’s all the TV information ahead of United’s first Premier League away day of the season.
