Manchester United Beat Brentford 3-0

For the second time in seven games, Manchester United scored themselves a huge win following their 3-0 victory over Brentford on Monday, 2 May.

Playing from home at Old Trafford – where United fans chanted and held up banners protesting against the club’s loathed owners, the Glazer family – the Red Devils managed to churn out their best performance since their 3-2 win over Norwich City last month.

Bruno Fernandes opened the scoreboard at the ninth minute; at the 60th minute, Cristiano Ronaldo successfully converted a penalty, while Raphael Varane scored from the corner 11 minutes later, thus appeasing their anti-Glazer fans.

After the match, interim manager Ralf Rangnick praised his players for one of their best performances yet.

“In possession, that was one of our best performances this year,” he said. “It was the type of performance we wanted to show to our supporters.”

Despite the impressive victory, United are sitting in sixth place on the English Premier League rankings with a lowly 58 points, much to Rangnick’s chagrin.

“In the end I’m not happy with the results, especially in the last four or five weeks,” he bemoaned. “In general, we have lacked consistency … it’s obvious quite a few players will leave and there is a need for top quality players.”
