Man United squad news for home game vs Brentford

The Manchester United squad have been pictured at their hotel ahead of the game vs Brentford this evening.

Manchester United have three games left until this hellish season is drawn to a close. Ralf Rangnick hasn’t been afraid to speak his mind, though the German hasn’t really brought in the desired results on the field.

There’s no doubt that Rangnick has been largely focused on leaving this squad in as good-of-a-place as possible for the incoming Erik ten Hag.

Now that top four is a mathematical improbability, while Thursday night football is also guaranteed, we’ve been hoping to see some of the academy lads in action.

Well, the Manchester Evening News have given us the all-important squad news ahead of this one, with two young United starlets keeping their place in the squad for this one. Both Alejandro Garnacho and Alvaro Fernandez are included.


On top of that, we’ve been boosted by the return of Fred and Edinson Cavani. Both of whom have overcome injury to be ready to play if needed.

Check out the confirmed MUFC squad for the game vs Brentford in full here:

Goalkeepers: Heaton, Henderson, De Gea.

Defenders: Fernandez, Telles, Bailly, Jones, Varane, Dalot, Lindelof.

Midfielders: Lingard, Matic, Fred, McTominay, Mata, Fernandes.

Forwards: Ronaldo, Rashford, Garnacho, Cavani, Elanga.

The squad has been in pretty bad shape with injury over the last few weeks, so it’s nice to see both Fred and Cavani return. Though in the case of the latter, I’m not quite sure he’ll get a warm welcome on his last visit to the Theatre of Dreams as a Red Devil.

As for Garnacho and Fernandez, I’d love to see these guys on the pitch. Sadly, though, I don’t really see them being given more than a few minutes here or there. For some reason, Rangnick hasn’t been as willing to throw these academy lads in at the deep end as I initially thought.

I guess Rangnick doesn’t want to ruin their confidence, as playing in this dreadful United side will do exactly that for anyone at this moment in time.

Either way, it’s good to hear that these boys are getting used to the first-team matchday experience. When the time comes, both Garnacho and Fernandez will be fully used to the process – which is only a good thing.
