Manchester United’s outside push for a Champions League spot continues on Monday night as they welcome Brentford to Old Trafford.

Ralf Rangnick’s charges are outsiders for a Top Four spot this season and the newly appointed Austria boss is without a string of first team players.

Paul Pogba, Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are all set to miss out for the hosts but Fred and Jadon Sancho could come back in.

As for the visitors, Thomas Frank’s side are within touching distance of mathematical safety, as the Bees look to stay in the top-flight next season.

However, Frank has his own injuries issues to battle against in this one, with Sergi Canos and Ethan Pinnock both still out.

But, key pair Kristoffer Ayer and Christian Norgaard should be back fit to replace Mads Roerslev and Mathias Jensen in Manchester.

And this one wraps up the Premier League action with an 8pm kick off on Monday night at Old Trafford.
