Manchester United will take on Premier League opponent Brentford in an effort to fully recover from a difficult opening weekend.
Matchday 2 is the ideal moment to fix early-season problems.
In the league opener for Man U, Brighton defeated them 2-1. That, of course, elicited sadness from United supporters and a flurry of amusement from the opposing crowd in Manchester.
A top-4 finish for Manchester United would be excellent, even though it may not represent a serious threat to teams like City and Liverpool to win the EPL this season.
But Brentford are no pushovers either, as evidenced by their opening-round draw with former Premier League winner Leicester City.
