Team News
Brentford will again be without the services of Julian Jeanvier, David Raya, Charlie Goode and Josh Dasilva for this match through injury, while Mathias Jorgensen remains a doubt.

The Bees are also missing Frank Onyeka due to his involvement in the Africa Cup of Nations, but Rico Henry returned from injury to feature in the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Frank will be wary of overplaying Henry, so Sergi Canos could come into the starting XI, while Mathias Jensen is pushing to replace Shandon Baptiste in the middle of the park. There will be no alterations in the final third of the field, though, with Ivan Toney again being joined by Bryan Mbeumo.
Brentford possible starting lineup:
Fernandez; Ajer, Jansson, Pinnock; Rasmussen, Janelt, Norgaard, Jensen, Canos; Toney, Mbeumo

Manchester United
As for Man United, Paul Pogba remains on the sidelines with a thigh problem, while Eric Bailly is unavailable due to his involvement in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka also remains a doubt through illness, but Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to recover from a hip injury to return to the starting XI, while Marcus Rashford could be involved after missing out at the weekend due to a dead leg.

Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay are both available following one-game suspensions and should return, while Harry Maguire is in line to feature in the starting XI, having been on the bench on Saturday.

Anthony Elanga could keep his spot, though, with the 19-year-old impressing against Villa, with Victor Lindelof, Alex Telles, Nemanja Matic and Edinson Cavani potentially dropping out of the side.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Elanga, Fernandes, Greenwood; Ronaldo
Prediction: Brentford 1-2 Manchester United
