Brentford defeats Manchester United 4-0 thanks to their outstanding first-half performance.

The Bees were relentless in the first half, with Dasilva scoring after De Gea mishandled his attempt barely ten minutes in.

Additionally, Jensen corrected a mistake in the back by latching onto a sloppy touch and squeezing it in.

Mee headed in from a corner for his first Brentford goal before Mbuemo finished a lightning-quick counter.

Although Eriksen had a golden opportunity to give the visitors some sympathy, Brentford managed to keep their clean sheet.

Goals:

DASILVA SCORES! And it’s a moment to forget for De Gea! It comes from United’s throw-in, and Ronaldo loses out to Jensen. He squares it to Dasilva, and the United players are slow to close him down, so he has a go from range. It’s low to De Gea’s near post and flies straight through his hands and into the bottom corner. 1-0 Brentford!

JENSEN SCORES! And United are falling apart here! Martinez takes the goal-kick short to De Gea and touches it out to Eriksen, who is caught on the ball by Jensen again. He quickly turns into space before slotting it into the near bottom corner. 2-0 Brentford!

MEE SCORES! The resulting corner is swung deep into the box, and Toney has acres of space as he nods it back across the goal line. However, mee trips as he runs towards goal, and on his way to the ground, it skims off his head and hits the back of the net. 3-0 Brentford!

MBUEMO SCORES! United was enjoying a good attack at the other end, but Brentford punished them as soon as they won possession back. Toney latches onto the long ball upfield and instantly plays it to the edge of the box for Mbuemo. He outmuscles Shaw to slot it into the bottom corner coolly. 4-0 Brentford!

So, what’s next?

That loss sees United drop to the bottom of the table, still without a point.

Next up for them is their rivals, Liverpool, at home a week on Monday.

Brentford has their first win of the campaign, and they travel to Fulham for their next game.
