The debut of United’s flamboyant new green kit was greeted by visitors who fell behind the pace after the opening goal was scored against the visitors.
Josh Dasilva, season 1 scorer last week, was on target again when his handball somehow missed David de Gea.
The Manchester goalkeeper had previously bailed them out last season, but his confidence had been shattered. Christian Erisken was mentioned by Matthias Jensen, but de Gea chose him anyway. The Dane was dispossessed in his own territory and Jensen finished to seal the start.
Head coach Erik ten Hag could hardly believe his eyes as the visitors continued to capitulate to him. Brentford’s height advantage was clear from the start and the hosts took full advantage of the half hour lead to take the lead.
Ivan Toni was allowed to move freely around the back counter, nodding through the gate for Ben Mi to push him home.
Manchester United tried to restore the game but conceded another goal, Tony found space on the left and made a terrific pass to find Brian Mbeumo, who ignored Luke Shaw and completed an almost unbelievable half of the game.
United made three substitutions at half-time, trying to salvage what little pride they had left after a tough first half. Although they were unlikely to get worse, United started to pose a slight threat and Cristiano Ronaldo came close to a couple of headers. However, the threat of visitors faded away.
As a result, the team suffered a second consecutive defeat in the English championship.
Recall that in the matches of the 1st round, Manchester United lost to Brighton, and Brentford played a draw with Leicester.
